2018 NCAA DII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – With the first two weeks of the outdoor track & field season in the rearview mirror, the men from Chico State sit atop the NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Team Rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The Wildcats hit 16 top-10 Descending Order Marks over the course of the first two weekends of the outdoor campaign to thrust themselves into the top of the opening-season rankings for the fourth time in the last five years.

Leading the way for the Wildcats was Kyle Medina, who already hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark in the steeplechase, notching a Descending Order List-leading time of 8:51.66 in the event.

While Chico State had itself a solid opening to the season, it was joined in the top-five by some other programs that got a nice start to the outdoor campaign.

Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Richard Cervantes notched the nation’s top discus mark, while a quartet of Javelina ran a 40.31 in the 4×100 relay for the top mark in NCAA Division II this year, helping the program achieve the number two ranking.

Fresh off an indoor national title, Pittsburg State comes in at third on the week. The Gorillas were busy during the indoor season, but have already seen stellar results on the outdoor circuit, where Ian Duncan hit an NCAA Division II-leading high jump mark of 2.15m (7-0½).

Angelo State sits fourth in the rankings thanks in large part to two athletes who own the top marks in NCAA Division II in their respective events. Trivett Jones has already hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark in the pole vault, clearing 5.20m (17-0¾) at the Texas A&M-Kingsville Cactus Cup, while Dragan Pesic’s 7,033 in the decathlon also sits atop the Descending Order List.

Rounding out the top-five on the week is UC San Diego, which finds itself in the top-five of the first week of the season for the fifth-straight season. The Tritons’ Matt Bowen owns top-five marks on the Descending Order List in the triple jump and long jump so far this year.

Alabama-Huntsville, UNC Pembroke, Saint Augustine’s, Concordia (Ore.) and Queens (N.C.) sit in spots sixth through 10th, respectively, during the first week of the season. The rankings for Alabama-Huntsville, UNC Pembroke, Concordia (Ore.) and Queens (N.C.) are program-bests for the opening week of the season.
