All-division preview: Five top-tens to compete at Husky Invitational

The season reaches an apex this weekend with the annual Husky Classic, as the Dempsey welcomes in many of the nation’s top teams for a huge weekend that will go a long way toward shaping the NCAA championship picture. Half of the teams in the top-25 of the rankings will be represented in the Dempsey this weekend.

The Husky Classic frequently features the fastest distance races on the indoor schedule, many times faster than the NCAA meet itself, as teams send their top contenders to Seattle in hopes of running season bests that will qualify them for the NCAA Indoor meet just a month away on March 14-15. Twelve of the top-25 teams will be on hand, though many teams send just a handful of athletes.

There will be five top-10 teams including No. 2 Oregon, No. 4 Florida, No. 5 Georgia, No. 6 Arkansas, and No. 9 Stanford.

In other Division I action, No. 1 Texas, No. 6 Arkansas, and No. 10 LSU will run at the Tyson Invitational. 

Last Lap:

No. 1 Lincoln (Mo.) and No. 8 Tiffin will run at the Hoosier Hills Invitational. ... No. 2 Grand Valley State will face No. 4 Ashland. ... No. 3 Adams State will travel to the Husky Invitational with many other Division I schools.

No. T4 Wisconsin-Oshkosh and No. T4 Wisconsin-Whitewater will both compete at the WIAC Quadrangular in Division III action this weekend. .. No. 2 MIT and No. 5 Williams will run at the Tufts Cupid Invitational in Boston.

The coronavirus has cancelled so many things, but here's one it hasn’t — a young woman’s will to run. Jones is still putting in 75 miles a week, happy that Boulder has lots of open spaces, so social distancing is not an issue. An odd sign of our times: Jones’ tan lines on her face from wearing a mask. But the daily workout is therapy in running shoes.
