USTFCCCA NAIA top 25 rankings

SEWARD, Neb. – In the first NAIA National Team Computer Rankings released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), both of 23rd-year head coach Kregg Einspahr’s indoor squads landed inside the top 10. The defending GPAC champion Bulldog men checked in at No. 7 while the women fell into place at No. 8.

At the 2014 indoor national championships, the Concordia women placed 11th while the men came in 17th. Since 1997, the Bulldog men have placed inside the top 25 in indoor track on 15 occasions, including six top 10 finishes. During that same time period, the women have finished in the top 25 a total of 13 times with three top 10 placements.

The higher athletes are ranked, the more points they contribute to their teams. Team totals are derived from adding up the point contributions of each of their athletes.
