2020 NAIA Men’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – There was some movement in the top-5 of the most recent NAIA Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index that was released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

With just two weeks remaining in the season with the 2020 NAIA Indoor Track & Field Championships set for March 5-7 in Brookings, South Dakota, it’s high time to find out which teams are hitting their stride at the right time.

Indiana Tech is still the top-ranked squad in the nation right now, as it has been throughout the season. The Warriors have held a substantial lead, no matter what. Indiana Tech currently sits at 356.33 points, which is 118.16 more than second-ranked William Carey (Miss.).

If you compare the teams, you’ll see why Indiana Tech is on top. The Warriors have racked up 30 automatic qualifying marks compared to 17 for the Crusaders.

Wayland Baptist (Texas) and Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) come in behind Indiana Tech and William Carey (Miss.) at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

The Pioneers own 11 automatic qualifying marks, including the nation’s top mark in the 600 meters from Reggie Mouton, who ran a converted 1:19.41 this past weekend at the Texas Tech Matador Qualifier. Mouton is also part of the nation-leading 4×400 relay team that went 3:10.98 – 3:14.48 converted – this past weekend at the same meet.

The Tigers hold 13 automatic qualifying marks with six either being improved or added to the Descending Order List based off the results at the Chicagoland Collegiate Indoor Track & Field Championships. Wesley Meyer had himself a meet this past weekend as he notched the nation’s fastest mark in both the 1000 (2:27.06) and the mile (4:10.26). Don’t forget about Bricyn Healey, who is ranked second nationally in the 3000 Meter Race Walk at 12:42.19.

Doane (Neb.) rounds out the top-5 teams after falling two spots from No. 3.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Concordia (Neb.), No. 7 St. Francis (Ill.), No. 8 Taylor (Ind.), No. 9 Aquinas (Mich.) and No. 10 Saint Mary (Kan.).
