New Orleans, La. - Based largely on performance bests from returners, Stony Brook's women's indoor track and field team is ranked 15th in the preseason by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Stony Brook ranks ahead of the likes of Texas A&M, Baylor and Villanova.

The Seawolves return NCAA qualifiers in seniors Lucy Van Dalen and Holly Van Dalen (Wanganui, New Zealand) as well as senior Hayley Green (Wellington, New Zealand).

Lucy qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 3,000, while Holly qualified in the 5,000.

The NCAA Championships will be held in Nampa, Idaho on March 9-10.

Stony Brook is back in action on January 20 at the Long Island Championships hosted by St. Anthony's High School.
