NEW ORLEANS – The NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings underwent a bit of a makeover in anticipation of the first weekend that conference championships can be held.

The most recent rankings, released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), saw 16 of the top-25 teams jostle for position, including five in the top-10.

UW-Whitewater surged from No. 8 to No. 5 this week, the first time it has occupied space in the top-5 since Week 8 of 2017. The Warhawks’ 4×400 relay team clocked the second fastest time in the nation this past weekend (3:17.90) to help their cause.

UW-Eau Claire climbed four spots from No. 10 to No. 6, the first time it has been in the top-6 since Week 8 of 2016. The Blugolds were buoyed by David Kornack, who took over the top spot in the shot put with a heave of 18.14m (59-6¼).

The biggest movers outside of the top-10 were UW-Stevens Point and Dubuque. The Pointers went from No. 29 to No. 20 thanks to their 4×400 relay notching the eighth best time in the nation this season (3:18.87). The Spartans received a pair of strong marks from Blaze Murfin in the shot put (17.00m/55-9¼) and their 4×100 relay team (41.82).

Be sure to check back throughout the season as the National Team Rankings continue to evolve ahead of the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships held May 24-26 in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
