USTFCCCA Rankings – April 12, 2021

Baton Rouge, La.  –  The LSU women’s and men’s track and field teams are both ranked No. 1 in the nation in the third edition of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association ratings index released on Monday morning.

This marks the third consecutive week that the women are ranked No. 1 nationally. For the men, its their second time in three weeks to be ranked No. 1.

The Tigers added or improved five marks on the NCAA top 10 list including Tonea Marshall’s new NCAA lead of 12.70 seconds in the 100 meter hurdles. Marshall, who already owned the NCAA lead with a 12.75 from the Texas Relays, clocked her fastest time of the season with a time of 12.70, albeit it was wind aided, but allowable for NCAA qualifying marks.

Jumpers JuVaughn Harrison and Rayvon Grey registered quality marks in their respective events. Grey’s best mark of the week in the long jump was a wind-aided 26′ 7.75″ (8.12 meters). He also added a wind legal personal best of 26′ 7″ (8.10 meters) on the attempt prior. Grey’s jump ranks No. 2 in the NCAA and moves him up to No. 6 in the LSU record books. Harrison cleared 7′ 3.75″ (2.23 meters) in the high jump to rank fourth in the NCAA.

The other marks added to the top 10 were by Symone Mason and Eric Edwards Jr. Mason ran a personal best of 11.21 in the 100 meters to rank sixth nationally, and Edwards Jr. ran wind-aided time of 13.52 in the 110 meter hurdles to move up to No. 5 in the NCAA.
