2019 NCAA DIII Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – There were a plethora of changes to the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index between Week 3 and Week 4!

That’s because all preseason marks were dropped from the TFRI – with the exception of those in distance events and combined events – and the order was calculated using performances just from what has turned out to be an incredible 2019 season thus far.

You better believe a lot will change between now and May 20 when the final TFRI comes out in advance of the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships set to begin three days later in Geneva, Ohio.

UW-Eau Claire is No. 1 for the first time in program history. The Blugolds own the top spot in the Men’s National Rating Index thanks to six top-5 marks nationally, including David Kornack’s national leader of 18.84m (61-9¾) in the shot put. Kornack is joined in the top-5 nationally by teammates Kyle Lueck (1500), Dylan Cooper (decathlon), Darin Lau (5000 and 10,000) as well as Patrick Treacy (1500) in their respective events.

Pomona-Pitzer also captured it best ranking in program history as it comes in at No. 2. The Sagehens have three athletes that account for five top-5 marks nationally: Carter Floyd is No. 1 in the 800 and No. 4 in the 1500, Andy Reischling is No. 2 in the 5000 and No. 5 in the 10,000, while Daniel Rosen is ranked second in the steeplechase.

MIT had never been ranked in the top-5 of the TFRI until now. The Engineers are No. 3 and earn their best ranking in program history. MIT has a talented 1-2 punch in the field in the guise of Alec Reduker and Yorai Shaoul. Reduker is ranked first nationally in the high jump, while Shaoul has top billing in the triple jump.

UW-Oshkosh is ranked fourth in Week 4 thanks to the efforts of Ryan Powers on the track and Joe Vils and Jonathan Wilburn in the field. Powers is No. 1 nationally in the 400, while Vils and Wilburn are ranked second and third in the pole vault and triple jump, respectively.

John Carroll rounds out the top-5 at No. 5, its best ranking in program history. The Blue Streaks are led by Hayden Snow as well as the 4×100 relay team. Snow is currently billed at No. 2 nationally in the long jump, while the 4×100 relay team is ranked third.

The rest of the top-10 includes No. 6 Mount Union, No. 7 Rowan, No. 8 Washington (Mo.), No. 9 Wesley and No. 10 UW-Platteville, in that order.

The top-2 teams in the Women’s National Rating Index remained the same even after we tossed out preseason marks from the TFRI. That’s because top-ranked George Fox and second-ranked Williams have been on another level compared to the rest of the nation as they’ve combined for 11 efforts that rank in the top-5 nationally.

It should come as no surprise that the Bruins are ranked No. 1 by virtue of their athletes dominating the national leaderboard. GFU has five entries at the top of the Descending Order List, including Sarah King in both the 400 and 800, Annie Wright in the heptathlon and both of its relay teams.

The Ephs are paced by top-ranked high jumper Emma Egan as well as the second-ranked pole vaulter Kelsie Hao. Don’t forget about Caitlin Ubl in the heptathlon or Anna Passannante in the 800 and 1500 either.

Redlands moved up a few spots between Week 3 and Week 4. The Bulldogs come in at No. 3 this week behind the top-ranked efforts of Reyna Ta’amu (No. 1 in the shot put) and Jessica Fields (No. 1 in the 100H, No. 2 in the 400H). Chyenne Kimble is right behind Fields on the Descending Order List in the 100H in addition to a strong showing in the heptathlon.

Johns Hopkins is ranked No. 4 with four top-5 entries into the TFRI. Tasha Freed (steeplechase), Caelyn Reilly (10,000) and Maya Hammonds (long jump) are all ranked second nationally in their respective events, while Veronica Montane is billed third in the javelin.

Nebraska Wesleyan is back in the top-5 following the shakeup. The Prairie Wolves are led by Elizabeth Jones and Kayla Jones in the 400 and Maddie Fitzgibbons in both the discus and hammer.

The rest of the top-10 includes No. 6 Washington (Mo.), No. 7 Loras, No. 8 SUNY Geneseo, No. 9 Emory and No. 10 UW-Eau Claire, in that order.
