2018 NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – Don’t look now, but it’s incredibly tight atop the NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings with less than one month to go until NCAAs.

After preseason marks were thrown out in events not named the 5000, 10000 and decathlon, the rankings shifted a lot as 24 teams in the top-25 lost their spots. The only team to remain in place from Week 3 to Week 4, when the newest rankings were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), was top-ranked North Central (Ill.). Otherwise, it was complete chaos.

Christopher Newport was the biggest benefactor of the reorganized index as it went from No. 16 to a program-best No. 2. This is the first time that the Captains have been ranked higher than 10th, a spot they occupied twice in 2014. CNU’s rise coincided with its efforts this past weekend. The Captains ended up with five new top-10 marks nationally, including the No. 2 mark in the 800 (Cullen Monahan), the No. 4 mark in the discus (Legend Hayes) and a pair of marks ranked No. 6 in the discus (Brendon Burrows) and 4×400.

Less than six points separates CNU and the top-ranked Cardinals, while less than nine points distinguishes third-ranked Rowan from North Central (Ill.).

There were 10 teams that jumped more than 10 spots between Week 3 and Week 4 either in or into the top-25: Pomona-Pitzer (No. 24 to No. 11), Birmingham-Southern (No. 29 to No. 12), Central (Iowa) (No. 56 to No. 14), Bethel (Minn.) (No. 57 to No. 16), Loras (No. 37 to No. 18), Wartburg (No. 107 to No. 19), Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (No. 46 to No. 20), UW-Platteville (No. 77 to No. 21), Hope (No. 62 to No. 20) and John Carroll (No. 53 to No. 24).

Central (Iowa) and Loras were both buoyed by athletes who took over the top spots on the Descending Order List. The former witnessed Mark Fairley’s tremendous run in the steeplechase (8:57.39), while the latter saw Patrick Mikel rip around the track in the 400 to the tune of 47.00 seconds.

Take a look again at what the Knights did. Wartburg soared from No. 107 to No. 19 thanks to a pair of top-10 marks this past weekend in the 1500 by Sam Pinkowski and Casey Roberts. Both of them are also ranked in the top-10 of the 5000 and 800, respectively.

The 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held May 24-26 in La Crosse, Wisconsin on the campus of UW-La Crosse.
