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

NEW ORLEANS – There was a good bit of change in the most recent NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings that were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Only three of the top-25 teams remained in place from the previous week, including No. 1 North Central (Ill.), No. 2 Rowan and No. 4 Augustana (Ill.).

The Cardinals actually extended their lead in the rankings to 38.40 points thanks to the efforts of their distance runners this past weekend. Athletes from North Central (Ill.) packed the 10,000 at the Wash U Invitational and they notched the fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-best marks according to the USTFCCCA Individual Rankings – which are used until there is enough data culled from the current season.

The Profs added a few points to their ledger behind their 4×400 relay and Jeffrey Jon Tucker. The former reeled off the top time in NCAA DIII this season (3:17.43), while Tucker moved up to seventh in the Individual Rankings of the high jump with his clearance of 2.10m (6-10¾).
