2018 NCAA DIII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – For the fifth time this season, there is a new top-ranked team in the NCAA Division III Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings.

UW-Eau Claire is perched atop the most recent rankings released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). This is the first time that a Blugold team has been ranked No. 1 by the USTFCCCA during the outdoor season, regardless of gender.

The biggest reason for UW-Eau Claire’s jump from Week 6 to Week 7 was the performance of Erica Oawster this past weekend. Oawster surged to the top of the Descending Order List in the discus with her heave of 49.85m (163-6) and was named National Athlete of the Week for her efforts. She is also second nationally in the shot put.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps fell one spot to No. 2 in front of UMass Boston, which remained idle at No. 3. George Fox stayed in position at No. 4, followed by new No. 5 Whitworth.

The Pirates added two more national top-10 marks to their booty this past weekend. Kayla Leland clocked the fourth fastest time in the nation this year over 5000 meters (16:38.80) to go along with her top mark in the steeplechase. Isabel Clark notched the eighth furthest mark in the javelin this outdoor season.

Williams and MIT both moved up two spots from Week 6 to No. 8 and No. 10, respectively.

Outside of the top-10, however, Westfield State had the best week. The Owls soared 12 spots from No. 26 to No. 14, their best outdoor ranking in program history after Jessie Cardin, Ashley Craig, Alexa Popp and Sabrina Pray tallied national top-8 marks. Cardin is ranked No. 3 in the steeplechase. Craig comes in No. 6 in the pole vault. Popp is No. 8 in the 400. Pray is No. 6 in the 100 hurdles.

The final National Team Rankings of the regular season will be unveiled on Monday in advance of the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which take place May 24-26 in La Crosse, Wisconsin on the campus of UW-La Crosse.
