Aided by Marie Smith’s record effort and national provisional mark over the weekend in the 60-meter hurdles, the NNU women’s track & field team remained atop the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association West Region poll.

The Crusaders earned 306.06 points in this week’s third ranking, widening the margin between themselves and No. 2-ranked Alaska Anchorage (253.60) from about 17 points a week ago. It is the third straight week the NNU women have been ranked No. 1.

Along with Smith, Natalie Evans (800), Jordan Rehfeld (3,000) and Alison Silva (pole vault) have also hit national provisional qualifying marks in their events this winter.

While the NNU women stretched their lead in the poll, the Crusader men remain one of the top West Region squads as well despite slipping one spot in this week’s poll. NNU fell from No. 6 to No. 7 with 211.59 points. Western Washington (483.99) leads the West Region poll.

In individual events, NNU pole vaulters Greyson Kilgore and Silva each are ranked No. 1 in the West Region for men and women, respectively.
