2020 NCAA DIII Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 6
NEW ORLEANS – Things settled down a bit in the NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index, but that doesn’t mean there were a few changes to be had among the top-10 teams when the most recent iteration was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Six of the top-10 teams shifted spots between Week 5 and Week 6, including one that jumped three spots to an all-time program best No. 7.

All TFRI Reports
Ithaca and Williams remained No. 1 and No. 2 for the second week in a row.
UW-La Crosse swapped spots with UChicago as the former went from No. 4 to No. 3 and the latter went from No. 3 to No. 4.
The Eagles received some impressive feats from athletes this past weekend at the WIAC Indoor Championships. You can’t start anywhere else but with a national leader and that’s where Skye Digman sits after launching the shot 14.72m (48-3½) to win the conference title. Digman and Savannah Rygiewicz are both ranked in the top-5 nationally in two separate events (Digman in the shot put and the weight throw; Rygiewicz in the 60 and the 200). UW-La Crosse also has three women ranked in the top-15 of the 60 Hurdles.
Loras and Johns Hopkins remained unchanged at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.
Then we have Dubuque, which climbed three spots from No. 10 to a program high No. 6. The Spartans continue to be led by Alison Beeman. It was this past weekend at the American Rivers Conference Indoor Championships where Beeman bettered her seasonal best in the 200 to 24.47 and anchored Dubuque to the seventh-fastest mark of the season in the 4×400 relay. Beeman is projected to compete in three individual events (60, 200 and 400) and one relay at the NCAA Championships.
SUNY Geneseo held steady at No. 9 after turning in strong marks throughout the season, including this past weekend at the SUNYAC Indoor Championships. The Knights have seven marks billed in the top-16 nationally, including two from Genny Corcoran. The distance standout sits No. 2 in the 5000 at 16:55.64c and No. 5 in the 3000 at 9:54.46c.
Carthage dropped two spots from No. 8 to round out the top-10 at No. 10.
There were two new additions to the top-25: No. 21 Dickinson and No. 24 Eastern (Pa.).
