    The Don Kirby has become one of the elite meets of the regular season, drawing some of the best teams in the nation for a high-powered competition right before the conference-championship season.

    And this year will be no different, as three men’s teams and five women’s squads are ranked in the top 25 by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
    Top-ranked and defending national indoor champs Oregon headlines the men’s competition, which also includes No. 9 Stanford and No. 24 BYU. The women’s field features fifth-ranked (and also defending national indoor champs) Oregon, No. 9 Stanford, No. 17 USC, No. 19 UCLA and No. 20 Michigan.

    And if the ranked teams weren’t enough, the rest of the field also includes Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State, NC State, California, UCLA, Oklahoma, USC, Virginia, UTEP, Wyoming, Utah State and Washington State, among others.

    » Data Points: The Dempsey Dominates Sub-Four-Minute Miles

    SEATTLE - More than 1,200 NCAA athletes will pass through the Dempsey Indoor this weekend as Washington is set to host the Husky Classic, one of the premier invitationals in U.S. indoor track and field. Seven of the top-10 men's teams in the current USTFCCCA national rankings will be represented in the Dempsey this weekend, as will six of the top-10 women's squads.

    In addition to the Husky Classic, the UW Indoor Open also takes place in the Dempsey on Sunday. The Classic runs Friday evening, starting at 4:00 p.m., and picks up at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday and goes into the evening. Friday's events include the 200-meters, distance medley relays, and some very talented 5,000-meter fields, along with the weight throws and B-flights of the pole vault. The fastest heats of each track event will begin at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday.

    Time is of the essence for athletes looking to earn qualifying marks for the NCAA Indoor Championships, which take the top-16 marks in every event. Viewed as one of the very best meets for distance running, the Husky Classic once again has attracted a large number of the nation's best from all around the country, with schools as far-reaching as Arkansas, Georgia, Georgetown, Penn State, and Tennessee sending contingents of primarily distance runners.

    There are eleven men's teams ranked in the top-25 coming to the Dempsey, some sending more than twenty athletes, others just a few. No. 1 Oregon, No. 3 Arkansas, No. 4 Texas A&M, No. 5 Penn State, No. 8 Georgia, No. 9 Texas, and No. 10 Stanford will all be on hand, as will No. 13 Tennessee, No. 17 Oklahoma State, No. 24 BYU, and No. 25 Kennesaw State.

    On the women's side, No. 1 Georgia, No. 3 Arkansas, No. 4 Texas A&M, No. 5 Oregon, No. 6 Texas, No. 9 Stanford, No. 11 Georgetown, No. 15 Oklahoma State, No. 19 UCLA, and No. 23 Auburn will all have representation.

    Looking at the live results, looks like sprinter Ana Holland also had a very good result, coming in 2nd overall in the 200M in one of the 1st events of the evening.
