2019 NCAA DI Men’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 3

NEW ORLEANS – The scenery doesn’t change much when you’re the lead dog.

That was the case in the Week 3 edition of NCAA Division I Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index that was released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as the top-3 teams remained the same for yet another week.

Texas Tech, Florida State and Florida held steady at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. The Red Raiders were unable to extend their lead this past weekend, while the Seminoles and Gators couldn’t make up any ground either.

Houston leapfrogged LSU for the No. 4 spot in Week 3. This past weekend at the Charlie Thomas Invitational hosted by Texas A&M, the Cougars received strong efforts from Kahmari Montgomery (20.63) and Obi Igbokwe (20.66) in the 200 as they moved up to eighth and ninth in the TFRI Individual Ratings, respectively.

Just because the Tigers slid down to No. 5, that doesn’t mean they weren’t without their own standout efforts. In fact, Mondo Duplantis etched his name further up in the collegiate indoor record book. Duplantis cleared 5.87m (19-3) at the LSU Invitational this past weekend to become the second best performer with the fourth best mark in collegiate indoor history behind record holder Shawn Barber.

Alabama and Stanford worked their way further inside the top-10 of the National Rating Index. The Crimson Tide is now ranked ninth, while the Cardinal is slotted one spot behind it in 10th place. Alabama got a breakthrough performance from Shelby McEwen, who soared 2.31m (7-7) in the high jump at the Carolina Challenge. Stanford has one strong effort on its ledger so far this season in the guise of the DMR team that got the baton around in 9:29.35 last weekend.

The biggest move in the top-25 was turned in by Colorado. The Buffs jumped nine spots from No. 23 to No. 14 between Week 2 and Week 3. Joe Klecker gave Colorado major points thanks to his time of 7:48.32 in the 3000 that ranks him first in the TFRI Individual Rankings.

UTEP and Duke climbed the most overall places this week. The Miners went from No. 90 to No. 57 (33 spots), while the Blue Devils stepped over 31 spots to go from No. 108 to No. 77.

Be sure to check back in throughout the season as the National Rating Index will continue to shift ahead of the 2019 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships from March 9-10 at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Birmingham, Alabama.
