LSU Leads Standings as First Week of 2018 Season Concludes

With only 50 teams of the over 80 in the NCAA, the first standings of the regular season were guaranteed to be wild. And that’s exactly the case. What other week will you see Central Michigan at No. 3, Air Force in the top 25 and Ball State ahead of West Virginia, Penn State and Auburn? With the majority of the rest of the teams starting their season next weekend, things should even out. But until then, enjoy these wacky ranks.

  1. I know this was published before the Stanford Meet on Monday night so Elizabeth Price was left of many top placement spots including a tie for 1st in the all-around and the only perfect 10 of the week.

    1. Hi Alicia, Road to Nationals rankings are actually based on competition from Monday to Sunday, so the meets Monday do not factor into the previous weekend’s rankings. A good thing to note for future weeks as well!
