2018 NCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – Things never seem to stay the same from one week to the next in the NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings.

After a weekend of action-packed track & field meets, Oregon and Arkansas each moved up a spot in the top-five, while LSU held onto the top ranking, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday.

Oregon returned to second in the rankings after sitting there during the first three rankings of the season. The Ducks then fell to fourth in week three before moving up to third a week ago. Oregon’s one-spot rise from this past week can be attributed to its performance at the Desert Heat Classic. Lauren Rain Williams notched the third-best 200 time in NCAA Division I this year at 22.51 and Alaysha Johnson added the sixth-fastest 100 hurdle time at 12.75. Also, the Ducks’ 4×100 relay squad ran a 42.70, good for fourth on the Descending Order List.

Arkansas didn’t have to go far this past weekend to hit marks it needed to jump into fourth. The Razorbacks hosted the Arkansas National Relay Championships, where Janeek Brown and Taliyah Brooks notched times of 12.73 and 12.82, respectively, in the 100 hurdles. Both of those times sit in the top-10 of the NCAA Division I Descending Order List. Victoria Hoggard also recorded a 4.51m (14-9½) in the pole vault, placing her third in NCAA Division I this season.

LSU held onto the top spot in the rankings after its 4×100 relay squad ran the fastest time in NCAA Division I this year at 42.49 at the LSU Invitational this past weekend.

Falling in the top-five were Southern California and Georgia. Both squads slipped one spot each to third and fifth, respectively.
