2022 NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 6

NEW ORLEANS – How is it already May!?

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index for the 2022 season, 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 an objective, comprehensive look at which teams have stepped up throughout the season and are positioned well for success at this month’s climatic meet.

Top-ranked Rowan is one of two top-10 teams that held steady between Week 5 and Week 6 (Wartburg is the other at No. 9). The Profs only added or improved one national top-10 mark this past weekend, but it was a big one. Greg Poloso launched the javelin 70.39m (230-11) to become the No. 8 performer in NCAA DIII history. Poloso easily won the event title at the Lion’s Invitational this past weekend, besting teammate Dan McAleavey by more than 19 feet.

John Carroll jumped five spots from Week 5 to Week 6. The Blue Streaks are now ranked second after recording a pair of top-5 marks in the 5000 meters from Alex Phillip (No. 1, 13:58.78) and Jamie Dailey (No. 3, 14:08.22). Phillip is now the national leader in both the 5000 and 10,000 and joins former NCAA DIII standout Ian La Mere as the only two athletes in divisional history to go sub-14 both indoors and outdoors.

Hardin-Simmons soared 10 spots from No. 13 to No. 3 after a big weekend. The Cowboys added or improved four national top-10 marks this past weekend, which included a national-leading effort from Jordan Flores in the triple jump of 15.00m (49-2½). Another top mark from HSU was the 4×400 relay, kick-started by Malik Pratt, which is now ranked fifth nationally (Pratt also added the ninth-best open 400-meter mark of the season at 48.04).

Pomona-Pitzer dropped one spot from No. 3 to No. 4 and is right ahead of Carnegie Mellon, which fell three spots from No. 2 to No. 5. Both the Sagehens and the Tartans have six national top-10 marks to their credit, including one national leader.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 6: No. 6 UW-Eau Claire (down one spot), No. 7 Dubuque (down three spots), No. 8 Mount Union (down two spots), No. 9 Wartburg and No. 10 Bethel (Minn.) (up four spots). The Royals were buoyed by Joel Smith, who is now ranked third nationally in the 400-meter hurdles at 52.41.

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