2022 NCAA DIII Men’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – Welcome to Crunch Time!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA Division III Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index, which was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Remember that this ranking system is completely objective, as in it only tabulates marks from the current season, and gives a comprehensive look at where teams stand compared to their peers, as it pertains to their marks on the Descending Order List.

UW-Oshkosh held steady at the top for another week. The Titans weren’t going to move as they added or improved two top-3 marks to their ledger this season. Perhaps the most notable effort came from Jonathan Wilburn in the triple jump, as he bounded 15.09m (49-6¼) to improve his national lead in the event. Denzel Thomas is now ranked sixth in the 600 at 6.83, which gives UW-Oshkosh four athletes among the top-6 seasonal performers (No. 1, t-No. 4, t-No. 4, No. 6).

Loras didn’t budge from the passenger seat as it remained No. 2. The Duhawks chipped in two new-or-improved top-10 marks this past weekend with the distance medley relay team moving up to No. 3 on the seasonal chart with their 9:45.33 effort at the GVSU Big Meet and Josh Smith taking residence at No. 9 in the 200. It should be mentioned that Loras’ DMR went under the previous NCAA DIII record in the process.

Williams jumped two spots between Week 3 and Week 4 to settle in at No. 3. Aidan Ryan continued to lead the charge for the Ephs, as he shattered the 10-year-old NCAA DIII record in the 3000m with his 7:54.48 effort at the Boston University David Hemery Valentine Invitational. Ryan also helped Williams notch the second-fastest mark in NCAA DIII history in the distance medley relay at 9:42.29. Grahm Tuohy Gaydos made an impact as well, clocking the second-fastest time this season in the 5000m at 14:00.81 and nearly becoming just the fourth man in NCAA DIII history to go sub-14 minutes in the event.

MIT vaulted two spots from No. 4 to No. 2 after adding or improving three national top-10 marks this past weekend, including two among the nation’s best. Ryan Wilson is now ranked second nationally in the 800 at 1:50.16, while Kenneth Wei hurdled his way to the No. 3 spot in the 60-meter version at 8.04. Several marks for the Engineers fell right outside of the top-10.

UW-Eau Claire dropped one spot to No. 5 to no fault of its own. The Blugolds were paced this past weekend by Wes Keller, who tied for the fifth-best seasonal clearance in the high jump at 2.06m (6-9). Teammate Marcus Weaver shares that spot with Keller. Don’t forget that Weaver also holds the NCAA DIII record in the heptathlon with his score of 5533 points.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Wartburg (down three spots), No. 7 SUNY Geneseo (up one spot), No. 8 John Carroll (up two spots), No. 9 UW-Whitewater (up seven spots), No. 10 Mount Union (down three spots). The Blue Streaks turned in an amazing mark this past weekend, as they went 9:41.56 in the DMR to smash the NCAA DIII record.

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina!
