The Alabama men’s track & field team remains No. 8, while the Crimson Tide women check in at No. 40 in the latest U.S. Track & Field Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) indoor rankings released Sunday.
The Tide men won their first Southeastern Conference indoor championship since 1972 on Feb. 25 at Texas A&M University. Alabama’s Shelby McEwen won the high jump and the Crimson Tide distance runners scored 31 points in the 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters to lead UA to the title.
Alabama will send nine athletes (six men, three women) and its women’s 4×400-meter relay to College Station, Texas for the 2018 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, March 9-10, at Texas A&M.
