2022 NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – We’re about to hit crunch time!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are being used, so this is a comprehensive, objective look at the current campaign at hand.

Rowan held steady at No. 1 and cemented its spot atop the National TFRI. The Profs saw Amir Johnson take over the national lead in the triple jump with his 15.00m (49-2½) effort this past weekend at the Morgan State Legacy Track & Field Meet. That is one of eight national top-10 seasonal bests for Rowan, which includes four in the javelin alone (No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 9).

Carnegie Mellon leapfrogged Pomona-Pitzer into the No. 2 spot (The Sagehens are now ranked third). The Tartans added three national top-10 efforts to their seasonal ledger this past weekend, headlined by a Justin Kiefel two-fer: Kiefel is now the national leader in the long jump at 7.55m (24-9¼) and is ranked third in the triple jump at 14.73m (48-4). All told, CMU has six marks that rank among the top-10 seasonal performers – five of which are in the top-5.

Dubuque climbed 13 spots between Week 4 and Week 5, coming in at No. 4. The Spartans added or improved four national top-10 marks this past weekend, including a national-leading effort in the 4×100 relay of 40.59. Not to be outdone, UD’s 4×400 relay moved up to No. 4 in 2022. Two of the athletes on that 4×400 relay – Jeremiah Steed (100 meters) and JoJo Frost (400-meter hurdles) are ranked among the top-5 performers in their respective events.

UW-Eau Claire soared from No. 59 to No. 5 in Week 5. The Blugolds hold six national top-10 marks, which includes five that were notched this past weekend. Two of those efforts came in the decathlon, where Abrahm Shroedl and Mitch Stegman are now ranked third and fourth nationally at 6743 and 6659 points, respectively. Schroedl is also ranked fifth in the pole vault.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Mount Union (up two spots), No. 7 John Carroll (unchanged, No. 8 UW Oshkosh (up 12 spots), No. 9 Wartburg (unchanged) and No. 10 Williams (down four spots).

Mark your calendars for May 26-28, as that’s when the 2022 NCAA DIII Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio!
