2018 NCAA DI Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – As the crux of Conference Championship Weekend approaches, the NCAA Division I Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Team Rankings continue to evolve.

The most recent rankings released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) saw 22 teams swap spots from the previous week – including two in the top-5 – and No. 1 Texas Tech slightly extend its lead over No. 2 Florida.

Arkansas and Georgia switched places from Week 4 as the former went from No. 5 to No. 3 and the latter from No. 3 to No. 5. The Razorbacks hosted the Arkansas Qualifier and took full advantage of their home track and infield as several athletes improved upon their marks from earlier this season, namely Kenzo Cotton (200) and Jah-Nhai Perinchief (high jump).

Florida State moved one step closer to the top-5 as it comes in at No. 6. The Seminoles saw Austin Droogsma better his season best in the shot put. Droogsma launched the orb 20.10m (65-11½) and he now sits fourth on the NCAA DI Descending Order List.

Full Reports: By Team | By Event

Alabama, Syracuse and Houston come in at No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 this week. This is the best ranking in program history for the Cougars, who jumped six spots from Week 4 and are led by Elijah Hall (No. 3, 60; No. 4, 200) and the fourth-ranked 4×400 relay. It’s the first time the Justyn Knight-paced Orange has been in the top-10 since Week 3 of last year.

Stanford and Virginia Tech both climbed the index on the strength of their respective DMR teams. The Cardinal quartet recorded the top mark in the nation at the Alex Wilson Invitational when they got the baton around in 9:26.91. Then the Hokies notched the fourth best mark in the nation with their time of 9:28.59.

A lot of teams rested this past weekend in preparation for Conference Championship Weekend, which kicks into full gear this weekend across the nation.

Then it will be time for the 2018 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships held March 9-10 in College Station, Texas.
