Indoor Track & Field through the years
After the first day of the two-day meet, Stanford leads with 22 points. The Cardinal doesn't figure to maintain those spots on Saturday, with competitors only in the 3,000.

In the women's DMR, Amy Weissenbach (1,200; 3:25.66) put Stanford in front and Kristyn Williams (400; 53.56) extended it. Claudia Saunders (2:06.18) held the lead on her 800 leg, but Arkansas closed to within a step on the final handoff and kicked past Justine Fedronic on the final lap of the 1,600 anchor leg.

In the 5,000, the Stanford duo moved up throughout the race and tested Dartmouth winner Abbey D'Agostino (16:20.39) on the final lap. Cuffe finished in 16:22.48 and Kroeger ran 16:23.34. Cuffe's runner-up finish equaled Stanford's highest in this meet.

Stanford concludes the meet Saturday with the 3,000, with Cuffe and Kroeger.

Florida is currently in second with 19 points and Texas A&M is in third with 16.
