NEW ORLEANS – A pair of big jumps shook up the top-10 of the NCAA Division III Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Computer Rankings in Week 3.

Nothing happened to the top-3 teams as Washington (Mo.), Claremont-Mudds-Scripps and Williams are still ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This is the 3rd consecutive week that the Bears, Athenas and Ephs remained in that order.

Right below those three teams is where the first big jump happened. Ithaca went from No. 8 to No. 4 after a big weekend from Taryn Cordani. The two-time NCAA indoor champion clocked a time of 16:35.71 over 5000 meters, which moved her up to 3rd in the USTFCCCA Event Rankings. The Bombers have three athletes ranked in the top-3 of their respective events – Cordani, Katherine Pitman (pole vault) and Brandy Smith (discus throw).

For those uninitiated, the USTFCCCA Event Rankings are a composite list using marks from the current season and previous seasons until enough data can be collected from the current one.

Top-16 Summary

The next place we’ll look is at No. 8, where SUNY Geneseo takes up residence.

The Knights soared 15 spots from Week 2 to Week 3 and were buoyed by Camille Wutz’s effort in the long jump. Wutz flew 6.13m (20-1½) to not only put her name atop the USTFCCCA Event Rankings in that event, but take over 6th place on the NCAA DIII all-time chart. SUNY Geneseo has quite the 1-2 punch in the horizontal jumps between Wutz and Alexa Wandy, who swept the horizontal jump titles at the NCAA indoor meet.

Carthage moved up from No. 21 last week to No. 11 in Week 3. The Lady Reds watched Mia Bennett and Elanta Slowek notch top-6 marks in the USTFCCCA Event Rankings in the hammer throw and javelin throw, respectively.

Aurora made an appearance in the top-25 for the first time this season and the 4th time in the past 3 years. The Spartans jumped 12 spots from No. 34 to No. 22 after a busy weekend. Lisa Rodriguez ended up in the top-10 of the USTFCCCA Event Rankings in the 200.

Right now there are about five weeks remaining until the 2017 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which will be held in Geneva, Ohio, from May 25-27. Make sure to check back on USTFCCCA.org for much more information about the championships and to see how the rankings change between now and then.
