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

NEW ORLEANS – Everything changed in the top-25 when preseason marks were thrown out of the NCAA Division III Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings in every event not named the 5000, 10000 and heptathlon.

No team remained in place when the most recent rankings were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

George Fox took advantage of the upheaval and is the newly-minted No. 1 team for the first time in program history. It has been quite the rise for GFU as it was No. 17 in the preseason, No. 3 in Week 1 and Week 2, No. 2 in Week 3 and now No. 1. The Bruins feature 10 marks that are billed in the top-10 nationally, including three at No. 2: Sarah King in the 400, the 4×100 relay and Annie Wright in the heptathlon.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps returned to a familiar spot. The Athenas are ranked No. 2, a place they’ve been 10 times dating back to last year – including three times this year. CMS received an all-time performance from Emily Bassett this past weekend at the Beach Invitational when she heaved the hammer 62.04m (203-6), took over the top spot in the Descending Order List and moved up to No. 3 all-time in NCAA DIII history.

Emory and UMass Boston return to the No. 5 at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. The Eagles now have the top-ranked 4×400 relay team in the nation, while the Beacons have Wadeline Jonathas, who is ranked No. 1 in the 200, 400 and now the long jump.

Oberlin jumped six spots from No. 14 to No. 8 following an incredible weekend. No performance for the Yeowomen was bigger than Lilah Drafts-Johnson’s outing in the 400 hurdles. Drafts-Johnson PR’d with a time of 59.84, moved to the top of the Descending Order List and isn’t too far removed from the NCAA DIII all-time top-10.

Otterbein, Redlands and Trinity (Texas) all vaulted 10 or more spots into the top-15. The Cardinals went from No. 22 to No. 11. The Bulldogs went from No. 23 to No. 13. The Tigers went from No. 40 to No. 14.

The biggest jump into the top-25 belonged to Birmingham-Southern, which was ranked No. 58 in Week 3 and is now billed at No. 24.

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.
