2018 NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – Don’t look now, but there is less than one month remaining until the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

If the meet was contested on paper, North Central (Ill.)’s men would still be the team to beat according to the most recent National Team Rankings released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The Cardinals actually strengthened their spot atop the index between Week 4 and Week 5 after what Dhruvil Patel did at the Drake Relays. Patel PR’d in the 5000 with his time of 13:58.27, took over the national lead and moved up to sixth on the NCAA DIII all-time chart.

Rowan moved up one spot in the rankings following a strong weekend. The Profs watched their 4×400 relay earn a national-leading time of 3:11.99 and Jeffrey Tucker continue to dazzle in the high jump. Tucker cleared 2.19m (7-2¼) and is now tied for the sixth best mark in NCAA DIII history with three other men.

UW-Whitewater soared from outside the top-5 at No. 7 right into the thick of it at No. 3. Parker Witt scorched a windy 10.42 in the 100 to take over the national lead and is now seventh in the 200 with his windy 21.42. The Warhawks are also led by DuVaun Goodlow, who is ranked third nationally in the high jump at 2.11m (6-11).

Redlands and Middlebury truly shook up the top-10 this week.

The Bulldogs jumped 25 spots between Week 3 and Week 4 and now 37 more between Week 4 and Week 5. Redlands comes in at No. 9, its best ranking since 2011 when it was eighth. This past weekend it was the sprinters who carried the Bulldogs, as Luke Bohlinger is now ranked second nationally in the 100 (10.43w) and 200 (21.08w), and he helped the 4×100 relay team to the No. 3 spot on the Descending Order List.

The Panthers are ranked 10th, which sets a program record. Nick Hendrix, James Mulliken and the 4×400 relay are all ranked in the top-10 nationally following this past weekend. Hendrix is seventh in the 100 at 10.58w, while Martinez sits seventh in the 800 at 1:51.35.

There will be three more sets of rankings between now and May 24-26 when the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships get underway in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
