NCAA DIII Indoor Team Dual Meet Rankings – March 2

NCAA DIII Indoor Team Dual Meet Rankings – March 2

NEW ORLEANS – Both the UW-La Crosse men and women extended their leads in the NCAA Division III National Dual Meet Rankings, announced Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

In the penultimate edition of the rankings, the Eagles both improved their team scores into the 180s. The men checked in at 187.45 points (more on the points later), more than five points ahead of WIAC rival UW-Eau Claire (182.27), while the women came in at 186.07, nearly three points ahead of the UWEC women (183.28).

Four men’s teams within approximately one point of another were in line behind UWL and UWEC: No. 3 Augustana (Ill.) (180.80), No. 4 UW-Oshkosh (180.19), No. 5 UW-Whitewater (179.67) and No. 6 MIT (179.65) are all exceptionally close in the standings.

The women’s race behind UWL and UWEC has a bit more breathing room. No. 3 UW-Oshkosh (180.51), No. 4 Ithaca (178.38) and No. 5 MIT (176.90) are all separated from one another by about two points.

The full rankings – including breakdowns by region, conference and head-to-head match-up – can be found below and on D3Rankings.us.

These rankings, compiled by Carnegie Mellon’s Gary Aldrich and released every Wednesday during the season, differ from the USTFCCCA National Team Computer Rankings in one important respect.

While the USTFCCCA Rankings are designed to forecast how programs might fare at the NCAA Championships, these Team Dual Meet Rankings are indicative of how full teams with two athletes per event would fare in head-to-head competition.

Scores are the sums of all points earned by a team in each event. Only two athletes per team may be considered in each event (and one relay team per event), and an athlete can only be used in up to three events, excluding relays. Points are based on the best marks by those athletes in the current season.

Programs must be a member of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association to be eligible for the rankings. You can check your membership status here. In addition, a member of that program’s coaching staff has to submit the rankings
