KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The University of Tennessee women's track & field team enters the 2009 outdoor season in the same position it began the 2009 indoor campaign. The NCAA Indoor champion Lady Vols stand at No. 4 nationally, according to the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I Women's Outdoor Preseason Rankings.

The Lady Vols, who won their second NCAA Indoor title in the past five years March 13-14 in College Station, Texas, tallied 196.53 poll points to follow No. 1 Texas A&M (357.91), No. 2 Virginia Tech (249.54) and No. 3 Oregon (235.31). Penn State rounded out the top five with 193.94 points. Other SEC schools besides UT include No. 6 LSU, No. 11 Florida, No. 13 Auburn, No. 17 South Carolina and No. 19 Arkansas.

The 2009 USTFCCCA Division I Preseason Rankings are based on the national ranking of returning athletes, and the regular season poll will apply points based upon athletes' rankings on the 2009 NCAA Outdoor qualifying list. Those rankings will be released on Wednesdays during the season.
