2018 NCAA DIII Cross Country Regional Rankings – Week 3

NEW ORLEANS – Now things are getting interesting!

An exciting weekend begets multiple changes to the 2018 NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Regional Rankings. The most recent rankings were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association.

We saw wholesale change in the New England Region and several others sprinkled throughout the nation as well.

The USTFCCCA Regional Cross Country Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighing returning teams’ strength with current season results (if applicable) in determining predicted team finishes at the NCAA Regional Championships, which will take place November 10, one week ahead of the NCAA Championships in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Atlantic Region

There were no changes to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the Atlantic Region. RPI maintained its top billing after a dominant performance this past weekend at the Purple Valley Classic, led by National Athlete of the Week Sean O’Connor. SUNY Geneseo remained No. 2, followed by No. 3 RIT, No. 4 St. Lawrence and No. 5 Ithaca.

There were a few changes in the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the Atlantic Region. SUNY Geneseo and RPI are still No. 1 and No. 2, but St. Lawrence climbed from No. 4 to No. 3, while Vassar inched up from No. 6 to No. 5 to take up residence behind No. 4 TCNJ.

Central Region

There were no changes to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the Central Region. Carleton remained No. 1 for yet another week, followed by No. 2 Wartburg, No. 3 St. Olaf, No. 4 Cornell College and No. 5 Loras.

There were no changes to the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the Central Region: Carleton, like their male counterparts, are ranked No. 1, followed by No. 2 Wartburg, No. 3 Nebraska Wesleyan, No. 4 St. Olaf and No. 5 St. Thomas (Minn.).

Great Lakes Region

There were no changes to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the Great Lakes Region. Calvin remained No. 1, followed by No. 2 Albion, No. 3 Otterbein, No. 4 Trine and No. 5 Case Western Reserve.

Mideast Region

There was a small change in the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the Mideast Region. Haverford is still the No. 1 team, but is followed by Johns Hopkins – not Carnegie Mellon. The Blue Jays finished 13th in an otherwise stacked field at the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown that featured no other non-NCAA DI programs. Carnegie Mellon sits No. 3 in Week 3, followed by No. 4 Dickinson and No. 5 Stevenson.

There were no changes in the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the Mideast Region. Johns Hopkins is still No. 1, followed by No. 2 Dickinson, No. 3 Carnegie Mellon, No. 4 Swarthmore and No. 5 Haverford.

Midwest Region

There were no changes to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the Midwest Region. North Central (Ill.) remains No. 1 for yet another week, followed by No. 2 Washington (Mo.), No. 3 UW-La Crosse, No. 4 U of Chicago and No. 5 UW-Stout.

There weren’t any changes to the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the Midwest Region. Washington (Mo.) still leads the region and is followed by No. 2 UW-La Crosse, No. 3 UW-Eau Claire, No. 4 Wheaton (Ill.) and No. 5 U of Chicago.

New England Region

There were some major changes to the men’s rankings of the New England Region after the Purple Valley Classic hosted by Williams. The Ephs, who finished runner-up at the meet to RPI, soared from No. 4 to No. 1, which is the first time they’ve been ranked atop the New England Region since Week 2 of 2017. The rest of the rankings look as the final standings were this past weekend: Middlebury, Amherst, MIT and Connecticut College in that order.

There were some big changes to the women’s rankings of the New England Region and the Purple Valley Classic has a lot to say for it. MIT proved to be the cream of the crop with its 67-81 victory over new No. 2 Williams. Tufts finished third and comes in at No. 3 (jumping one spot from Week 2), followed by Middlebury and Brandeis.

South/Southeast Region

There was one small change to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the South/Southeast Region. Rhodes is still No. 1, followed by No. 2 Emory, No. 3 Christopher Newport and No. 4 Washington and Lee. Mary Washington jumped two spots from No. 7 to No. 5 after a strong effort at the Shenandoah Invitational.

There was a small change to the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the South/Southeast Region. Emory remained No. 1, followed by No. 2 Centre and No. 3 Lynchburg. Coming in at No. 4 this week is Washington and Lee, up one spot from last week. Trinity (Texas) fell one spot from No. 4 to No. 5 in Week 3.

West Region

There were no changes to the top-5 of the men’s rankings in the West Region. Pomona-Pitzer remained No.1, followed by No. 2 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, No. 3 UC Santa Cruz, No. 4 Occidental and No. 5 George Fox.

There were no changes to the top-5 of the women’s rankings in the West Region. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps remained No. 1, followed by No. 2 Pomona-Pitzer, No. 3 Colorado College, No. 4 UC Santa Cruz and No. 5 Occidental.
