Colorado athletes in the DI top 20s

It's outdoor season for high school and that makes it a little more difficult--well, a lot more difficult, actually--to keep up with the college scene, but I thought I'd wedge in a moment or two to give you a quick update on where the Colorado collegians are fitting into the national rankings. As you might expect, we are currently lagging behind some warmer-weather states, but these rankings have a lot of week-to-week fluidity. And, many more athletes will qualify for NCAA regionals than can be listed in the top 20s for each event.
