2018 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 3

NEW ORLEANS – The winds of change swept through the NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings in Week 3 as 19 men’s teams and 19 women’s teams moved spots between Week 2 and Week 3.

Perhaps the biggest alteration in the most recent rankings released Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) is that Wiley (Texas) took over the No. 1 spot in the men’s index.

Men’s Story

There is a new sheriff in town.

Wiley (Texas) leapfrogged Indiana Tech for the No. 1 spot this week. This is the first time the Wildcats have been ranked No. 1 in program history. Wiley (Texas) owns four national-leading marks, which include Oraine Palmer in the 100, Rajay Hamilton in the 400, Marbeq Edgar in the 800 and the 4×400 relay team.

The Warriors slipped to No. 2, the first time they’ve been there since Week 1 of 2017. Indiana Tech only has one national-leading mark in the guise of the 4×100 relay team.

Westmont (Calif.) remains No. 3 for the second week in a row, while Doane (Neb.) and Central Christian (Kan.) both move up one spot from No. 5 to No. 4 and No. 6 to No. 5.

Three teams joined the top-25: Wayland Baptist (Texas) went from No. 31 to No. 13, Eastern Oregon went from No. 33 to No. 19 and St. Francis (Ill.) from No. 29 to No. 22.

Women’s Story

A familiar face is chasing down Indiana Tech.

Wayland Baptist (Texas) surged four spots between Week 2 and Week 3 and is No. 2 behind the Warriors at the moment. The Pioneers received two nation-leading marks this past weekend from both Devin Johnson in the 200 and the 4×100 relay team. WBU also has the top-ranked 4×800 relay team and the top-ranked triple jumper in the nation.

Hastings (Neb.) and Southern-New Orleans (La.) come in at No. 3 and No. 4. The Broncos got a huge mark from Sara Olsen in the hammer throw as she is now ranked No. 2 nationally in that event at 54.17m (177-8).

Friends (Kan.) rounds out the top-5 for the second week in a row.

Two new teams joined the top-25: Grand View (Iowa) went from No. 26 to No. 15 and Carroll (Mont.) soared from No. 61 to No. 22.
