2020 NAIA Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 3
NEW ORLEANS – There was one minor change to the top-5 of the most recent NAIA Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index that was released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Outside of one small swap, things remained relatively calm between Week 2 and Week 3.

Indiana Tech, Concordia (Neb.) and Huntington (Ind.) still come in at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, but Cornerstone (Mich.) is the new No. 4 after switching spots with new No. 6 Wayland Baptist (Texas).
The Golden Eagles soared two spots thanks to their efforts over the past few weekends of competition. Just this past weekend, Nygia Pollard added another automatic qualifying mark to Cornerstone (Mich.)’s ledger with a 5:09.48 in the mile at the Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame Classic. The Golden Eagles also currently own the No. 2 mark nationally in the Distance Medley Relay and the No. 4 mark nationally in the 4×800 relay.
Further down in the top-10, Doane (Neb.) and Eastern Oregon both improved their spots. The Tigers climbed from No. 9 to No. 8, while the Mountaineers navigated two spots from No. 11 to No. 9. Doane (Neb.) continues to be led by its field athletes, while EOU saw big marks from Megan Bolton in the 400 (No. 4, 56.94) and the 4×400 relay team (No. 4, 3:58.94).
There were two new additions to the top-25 this week: No. 19 Milligan (Tenn.) and No. 21 Dordt (Iowa).
