PULLMAN, Wash. -- The Washington State men's track and field team is ranked 18th in the preseason indoor edition of national track & field team rankings for NCAA's Division I by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
USTFCCCA national rankings are a prediction of how teams and individuals will place at the 2010 NCAA Div. I Indoor Championships, March 12-13, Fayetteville, Ark.

The Florida State men's team has been identified as the No. 1 team entering the season with in-state rival Florida at No. 2 close behind. On the women's side, Texas A&M, the defending outdoor champion and led by a talented sprint crew, enters the season No. 1 in the rankings. The Cougar women's team is unranked in the preseason projections.
The first regular release of updated rankings for NCAA's Division I will start Tuesday, January 26, with updates occurring the following seven Tuesdays leading to the NCAA Indoor Championships, March 12-13.
