NCEA RELEASES SECOND SET OF EVENT RANKINGS


NCEA RELEASES SECOND SET OF EVENT RANKINGS
Thursday, February 15, 2018

  

Waco, TX- The National Collegiate Equestrian Association on Thursday announced the second set of NCEA Event Rankings for collegiate equestrian, as determined by the NCEA Selection Committee. 

As noted in the January message, the new NCEA National Championship format will include four Event titles in addition to the overall National Team title. Event rankings are determined at each head-to-head competition based on a variety of data points (Win/Loss; Home/Away; Current Rank of Opponent).  The Event rankings may differ from the NCEA Team Rankings that are released every week throughout the season, as they are based solely on the results from the single event in the head-to-head meet. 

Event rankings are scheduled to be released on January 15, 2018, February 15, 2018, March 15, 2018 and the final seeding will be announced in April with the final team rankings.
