Men’s Story

Nothing changed in the top-5 from Week 4 as No. 1 North Central (Ill.) is followed by No. 2 UW-Oshkosh, No. 3 UW-La Crosse, No. 4 Mount Union and No. 5 UW-Platteville.

The Titans actually closed the gap on the Cardinals and extended their advantage over the Eagles, the Purple Raiders and the Pioneers thanks to the efforts of Jonathan Wilburn as well as their 4×400 relay team. Wilburn is now ranked first nationally in the triple jump at 14.85m (48-8¾), as is the 4×400 relay team at 3:14.33 after this past weekend.

UW-La Crosse helped its cause quite a bit this past weekend. Andrew Jarrett threw his way into the NCAA DIII record book in the weight throw with a heave of 20.87m (68-5¾) and has the national lead in that event. Then the Eagles’ DMR team got the baton around in 9:47.28 and has the national lead there, too.

The biggest move inside the top-25 was turned in by Washington (Mo.). The Bears clawed their way up 11 spots from Week 4 to No. 7 in Week 5. WashU now has top-5 ranked relay teams in the 4×400 (No. 2, 3:15.38) and the DMR (No. 4, 9:52.74).

Benedictine (Ill.) made the biggest move to get into the top-25 as it jumped 46 spots from Week 4 to Week 5. The Eagles are now ranked 17th after a blistering sprint by DeVonte Wilson in the 60 this past weekend. Wilson clocked a time of 6.86, which put him second nationally.

Women’s Story

WashU appears to hit another gear in the postseason.

The Bears put some considerable distance between themselves and second-ranked Williams this past weekend. Julia Dannenbaum cleared 3.91m (12-10) and is the national leader in the pole vault. That gives WashU a solid 1-2 punch in that event as Heidi Nassos also sits fourth in the nation at the moment in that event.

George Fox cracked the top-3 for the first time in program history. The Bruins leapfrogged Loras after Kennedy Taube clocked the fourth fastest 60-meter time in the nation this season. GFU is hoping that Taube and Sarah King can score major points at NCAAs since they’re both in position to be qualified in two events.

Johns Hopkins fell out of the top-5 in Week 4, but is back in Week 5. The Blue Jays have been a mainstay in the top-5 in the past two years, finding a home there eight total times.

The biggest move of the week in the Women’s National Rating Index belonged to Rowan. The Profs vaulted 44 spots from No. 58 in Week 4 to No. 14 in Week 5, which is their highest rank since Week 6 of 2014 when they were 12th overall. Aspen McMillan gave Rowan the biggest boost as she clocked the nation’s fastest time in the 60 hurdles (8.76).
