2018 NCAA DIII Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings — Week 6

NEW ORLEANS – The top-5 of the NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Team Rankings underwent a bit of an upheaval – as did most of the top-25 – in the most recent rankings released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Williams and MIT are still No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, but behind that duo sits new-No. 3 Ithaca, new-No. 4 UMass Boston and new-No. 5 Ohio Northern.

The Bombers worked their way deeper inside the top-5 thanks to the efforts of Taryn Cordani and Amber Edwards. Cordani notched the second fastest time of the season over 5000 meters this past weekend (16:47.59) and Edwards is now ranked seventh in the 60 hurdles (8.90).

The Polar Bears already have a triple threat in Emily Richards – No. 1 in the 800, mile and 3000 – but added two vaulters to the mix as well. Madison Reed and Maggie Krause improved their marks this past weekend and are primed to go into NCAAs as the No. 2 and No. 9 vaulters in the nation, respectively.

UW-Eau Claire moved up three spots from No. 10 to No. 7, which allowed Washington (Mo.) to take over that spot in the top-10. The Blugolds have the top-ranked multi athlete in the nation in Sarah Glidden and added a top-3 mark in the 4×400 to boot. The Bears received top-10 marks in the 800 from Annalise Wagner (No. 2) and Sophie Grigaux (No. 8).

Further down in the rankings, Carthage jumped nine spots from No. 24 to No. 15. This is the highest billing since 2011 for the Lady Reds. Carthage has the top-ranked weight thrower in the nation on its roster in Mia Bennett (18.70m/61-4¼).

Three programs vaulted seven or more spots from Week 5 to Week 6: Emory went from No. 52 to No. 21, Brandeis from No. 29 to No. 22 and Stevens from No. 55 to No. 25.

We’ll have one more set of rankings next Monday in anticipation of the 2018 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships from March 9-10 in Birmingham, Alabama.
