STARKVILLE, Miss. – With the 2014 Southeastern Conference Championships approaching, Mississippi State women’s track and field ranks 19th in the latest USTFCCCA Team Rankings announced on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs have remained in the Top 25 for four consecutive weeks now, donning their highest ranking at No. 12 during Week 4.

The Southeastern Conference has a nation-leading 17 men’s and women’s teams in the rankings, with nine on the men’s side and eight on the women’s.

Paced by newcomers Rhianwedd Price and Cornelia Griesche, MSU continues to boast numerous athletes at the top of the individual rankings as well.  

"I have always said we have some of the best athletes in the nation competing here at MSU," coach Steve Dudley said. "Seeing them ranked in a multitude of individual categories and together as a team only reinforces that claim."

Griesche ranks ninth in the nation in the women’s 3000-meter steeplechase (10:04.05), while Price ranks 10th in the women’s 1500-meter run (4:16.11).

Long jump standout Rochelle Farquharson keeps her spot at No. 4 this week with a personal-best 21-03.25.

Twenty-four Maroon and White athletes are set to compete on May 15-18 in Lexington as the University of Kentucky hosts this year’s SEC Outdoors.
