2019 NJCAA DIII Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – We are 11 days from the start of the 2019 NJCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which means teams are beginning to make final preparations for their trips to Utica, New York for the biggest meet of the season.

Let’s take a look at the penultimate National Rating Index for the 2019 season, as it was released Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Note: The final National Rating Index will be released next Tuesday, May 7.

There was a minor change to the top-5 of the Men’s National Rating Index.

Hudson Valley (N.Y.) jumped two spots from No. 5 to No. 3 behind top-ranked Harper (Ill.) and second-ranked Triton (Ill.), which remained in place yet again.

The Vikings were boosted by four athletes who turned in marks that ranked in the top-5 nationally. Elijah Washington is now ranked second nationally in the hammer throw at 45.50m (149-4). John Acker scored 4354 points in the decathlon to take over the No. 3 ranking on the Descending Order List. Jared Craw is now ranked fourth nationally in the steeplechase, while Devin Kipp is now ranked fourth nationally in the discus throw.

Since Hudson Valley (N.Y.) climbed two spots, that means two teams had to fall to correspond with that move. Those teams were Rowan-Gloucester (N.J.) and Suffolk County (N.Y.), which are now ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.

Nothing changed to the top-4 of the Women’s National Rating Index.

Suffolk County (N.Y.) remained on top of the herd at No. 1, while Harper (Ill.) is a distant second, Rowan-Gloucester (N.J.) is third and Kingsborough (N.Y.) is fourth.

The most notable changes came in the guise of Herkimer County (N.Y.) and Mohawk Valley (N.Y.), which are now ranked fifth and sixth nationally, respectively. The Generals received a top-5 national mark from their 4×800 relay team this past weekend, while the Hawks soared three spots from Week 4 to Week 5 thanks to the now fifth-ranked javelin throw by Jane Fahy and the sixth-ranked efforts of Sara Moore in the 10,000 as well as its 4×800 relay team.

Former fifth-ranked Union County (N.J.) fell two spots to No. 7 to allow both Herkimer County (N.Y.) and Mohawk Valley (N.Y.) to rise.
