2018 NCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 6

NEW ORLEANS – With a majority of the NCAA Division I conference championships slated to take place this weekend, limited action from this past weekend caused minimal movement in the NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday.

Kentucky was the lone team to budge in the top-five, as the Wildcats moved up one spot to fifth. Competing at its home meet, the Kentucky Relays, the Wildcats returned to its highest spot in the rankings this season, as it also sat fifth back in week three.

However, only one other team in the top-10 – as well as one more in the top-15 – saw positive movement on the week.

Stanford moved up two spots to seventh after its outing at the Payton Jordan Invitational. Vanessa Fraser notched a 15:20.10 in the 5000, putting her in second on the NCAA Division I Descending Order List, while Christina Aragon’s 4:12.28 in the 1500 is good for sixth in the country.

LSU remained atop the rankings after an off-weekend for the Tigers. Oregon sat second once again and was followed by Southern California and Arkansas in third and fourth, respectively.

Kentucky’s rise to fifth knocked Georgia down one spot to sixth despite Kate Hall’s performance at the Torrin Lawrence Memorial. Hall notched a 6.63m (21-9) in the long jump, putting her in fourth place on the NCAA Division I Descending Order List.

Georgia wasn’t the only squad to tumble in the top-10, as Texas A&M and Florida both fell one spot each to eighth and ninth, respectively. Minnesota rounded out the top-10 by holding onto 10th for the third-consecutive week.

Outside of the top-10, New Mexico had arguably the best week in the nation, as the Lobos worked wonders at the Payton Jordan Invitational to move up 30 spots to 14th in the rankings. Ednah Kurgat ran a 15:20.06 in the 5000, putting herself atop the NCAA Division I Descending Order List, while teammate Weini Kelati’s time of 15:22.71 in the same race was good for third in the nation this season. Additionally, Charlotte Prouse ran a 9:50.47 in the steeplechase, a time that ranks third in NCAA Division I this year.

The 14th-place ranking for the Lobos is the highest this season, as well as the second-highest in program history.

Sitting between Minnesota and New Mexico was Purdue (11th), Texas (12th) and Arizona State (13th), all of which remained in their respective rankings from a week ago.

The NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held in Eugene, Oregon, at Historic Hayward Field on June 6-9.
