NEW ORLEANS — For the second consecutive week, not much has changed in the NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Team Rankings.

In the most recent rankings that were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), the top-7 teams from Week 2 were still in place one week later.

In order, those teams are MIT, Washington (Mo.), Williams, UW-Eau Claire, Ithaca, Nebraska Wesleyan and Johns Hopkins. This is the 3rd week in a row that the Engineers have been ranked No. 1 and the 10th time in program history.

You’ll need to look all the way down to No. 8 to see the biggest move of the week, which was turned in by George Fox. The Bruins jumped 14 spots from Week 2 to Week 3 and demolished its previous high-water mark as a program (19th, 2013). Sarah King pushed George Fox ahead thanks to her top-ranked time in the 400 (56.48). King, along with Asia Greene (No. 2 in the long jump) and Rachael Kraske (No. 5, 60 hurdles), could form a dangerous wrecking crew come NCAAs on March 10-11.

Two other teams climbed multiple spots in the women’s rankings this week: SUNY Geneseo (No. 30 to No. 23) and Bates (No. 28 to No. 24).

The Knights had a solid team effort this past weekend and have one new top-10 athlete to show for it (Elise Ramirez in the 5000). The top-ranked athlete from SUNY Geneseo in the USTFCCCA Individual Rankings is Alexa Wandy in the triple jump (2nd).

The Bobcats stepped into the top-25 after Allison Hill blistered the track this past weekend. Hill clocked the nation’s top time in the 60 hurdles at 8.81, which is converted from 8.17 over 55 meters.

Outside of the top-25, the rankings saw Springfield (Mass.) and Gwynedd-Mercy vault into the top-35. The former went from No. 48 to No. 30, while the latter jumped 60 spots from No. 91 to No. 31 after a strong effort by Chante Moore (No. 2, 200; No. 9, 400) this past weekend.

The 2017 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held March 10-11 in Naperville, Illinois on the campus of North Central (Ill.).
