Note: It would appear the NCAA lists were not completely up-to-date when I first ran this article. I have updated rankings below with this revision.
Listed below are the Colorado high school graduates with remaining hope of advancing to NCAA DI Indoor Nationals in two weeks. In some cases, this is very thin hope, but hope nevertheless--I've defined anything in the top 25 as having remaining hope. Realistically, it takes something in the top 16 to make it, except in relays where the same school may have multiple entries in the rankings.
