OU holds onto the top spot in the Women's Nationals Rankings for the week of March 18th, as published by RoadToNationals.com.  UCLA is 2nd and LSU has overtaken Florida for 3rd. 

Denver holds the fifth spot, with Utah now in 6th.  Michigan edged ahead of UGA for the 7th spot. 

There continues to be a tight race for the Top 16 spots, although the importance of the Top 16 seeds may be lessened in the new format.  Just 0.105 separates #13 to #18, and we could see some shifting in the final week. 

A more critical ranking is the Top 28 and Top 36 Rankings.  Only 36 teams qualify to Regionals, but the spots #29 through #36 must endure an addditional "play-in" meet at Regionals.  Right now, WVU and Maryland are tied for 27th at 195.84.  NC State is however, 0.135 behind the pair, with Airzona just 0.005 behind. 

GWU is currently on the bubble at #36 at 195.335, just 0.035 ahead of Lindenwood.  From #34 UIC to #39 UC Davis just 0.125 points separates the teams. 

OU has the top spot on VT, UB and BB, but UCLA holds the top spot on FX.

Individually, UCLA's Kyla Ross is the top AAer and the top vaulter and UB worker.  OU's Maggie Nichols leads the BB while UCLA Katelyn Ohashi leads the FX.   Ohashi need a 10 this weekend on FX to end up with a 10.0 RQS.
