2018 NCAA DIII Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings – Pre-Championships

NEW ORLEANS – Based solely on qualified entries to the 2018 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships, Rowan is the team to beat according to the final Men’s National Team Rankings released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

This is the first time in program history that the Profs have been ranked No. 1 indoors.

Rowan wasn’t the only team on the move as Christopher Newport went from No. 3 to No. 2 and UW-Eau Claire joined the top-5 for the first time this season.

While the Profs don’t have the most qualified entries to NCAAs (That distinction belongs to UW-La Crosse with 11), they do have considerable depth. Rowan has two athletes ranked No. 1 in their respective events – Bobby Cooks in the 60 hurdles and Harrison Escoffery in the high jump – and all nine of its entries billed in the top-10 nationally.

The Captains own four top-3 marks nationally, which includes Grayson Reid’s No. 1 seed in the 5000. Jeffrey Dover is ranked second in the mile and third in the 3000, while Ryan Scott comes in ranked third in the 60 hurdles.

Former No. 1 North Central (Ill.) suffered a big blow as three-time defending champion Luke Winder won’t compete in the pole vault. The Cardinals will have a strong distance corps at the Birmingham CrossPlex, led by four men ranked in the top-6 nationally.

Fourth-ranked Mount Union brings five top-5 marks with them to NCAAs, including second-ranked Matt Keim (pole vault) and Mason Plant (60 hurdles). Other efforts that paced the Purple Raiders this season include Louis Berry in the 60, Connor Troyer in the 60 hurdles and the 4×400 relay team.

The Blugolds could make noise if the stars align. UW-Eau Claire has five entries ranked in the top-3 nationally, which bodes well for their chances. This past weekend the Blugolds’ DMR team notched the fastest qualifying mark and David Kornack upped the ante in the shot put.

Elsewhere in the rankings there were seven teams that jumped six or more spots. The biggest gainers of the week were Loras (No. 60 to No. 13) and SUNY Geneseo (No. 63 to No. 22).

The 2018 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held this weekend in Birmingham, Alabama.
