The Penn State women's track and field squad is ranked sixth in U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USFTCCCA) final 2013-14 Division I Program of the Year standings.
"It is exciting for our program to earn such a high ranking on the DI Women's Program of the Year list," said Head Coach and Director of Track & Field Beth Alford-Sullivan. "This demonstrates what we try to produce each year, a balanced program that is successful all three seasons. This level of accomplishment also reflects in our program producing a lot of points for the final Director's Cup results as well. I am proud of our amazing student-athletes, my staff and our total program."
