College Park, Md. - The University of Maryland women's track and field team has been projected to finish 21st in the nation according to a poll recently released by Trackwire.com.

"The program is definitely headed in the right direction," head coach Andrew Valmon said. "I'm very optimistic that we can continue to climb in the rankings."

The Trackwire 25, which is based on current performance lists, projects last year's outdoor and this year's indoor champion Texas Longhorns to finish first with 62 total points. The Terrapins are expected to finish with 11 points, behind ACC foes Miami (8th), North Carolina (10th), Florida State (16th) and Duke (18th).

Terrapin indoor All-Americans Kierra Foster and Lynn Hernandez, who placed third and fourth respectively in the long jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships are expected to repeat. They are ranked third and fourth, behind Texas' Marshevet Hooker and Shameka Marshall of Rutgers.

The Terrapin women return to action this weekend at the University of Virginia Lou Onesty/Milton G. Abramson Invitational. They will not compete at the Miami Gatorade Invitational as the schedule indicates.
