Elite Hoosiers — Nationally Ranked Hoosier Programs

As of January 8, 2019, the following Indiana University Athletics programs were nationally ranked in the Top 25, either currently, at the end, or in the preseason of their respective seasons:

MEN’S SOCCER – #2 

For the second season in a row, the Hoosiers lost in heartbreaking fashion at the College Cup.  Another strong season further cements IU’s standing as one of, if not the nation’s premier program of all-time.

MEN’S SWIMMING & DIVING – #2

The Hoosiers are off to a fast start and will be a strong contender for a team national title along with several individuals in the running for titles.

WOMEN’S SWIMMING & DIVING – #9

The Hoosiers finished 8th at the 2018 NCAA Championships and are once again a solid top ten program led by the legendary Lilly King.

WOMEN’S ROWING – #13

The Hoosiers earned an at-large bid to the 2018 NCAA Championships in May.

WOMEN’S WATER POLO – #14

The Hoosiers took 4th place at the CWPA championships.

WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY – #17

The program achieved all-time highs in the rankings in the fall season, finishing 17th at the NCAA championships.

MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY – #18

Big Ten Championships

IU finished 18th at the NCAA championships

MEN’S BASKETBALL – #22

The men’s basketball program has moved up in the rankings after re-entering for the first time since January of 2017 a few weeks ago.

MEN’S TRACK AND FIELD (OUTDOOR)- #24

IU sent six competitors to the NCAA Championships.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL – #25

A great start has the IU women ranked for only the 5th time in program history.

HONORABLE MENTION —

  • The IU baseball team was ranked for the majority of the 2018 season and is a strong candidate to return to the rankings under first year coach Jeff Mercer.
