COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina women’s track and field program was ranked sixth in the United States Track and Field/Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) indoor preseason poll, the association released this week.

The Gamecocks are among seven Southeastern Conference schools ranked in the poll (Top 25), led by 2007 national runner-up LSU. Defending champion Arizona State is ranked second, followed by Tennessee, Michigan and Stanford.
