2021 NCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

Strong performances over the course of the weekend stirred up the latest NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index, released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Arkansas were the lone teams in the top-5 that held steady. A one spot improvement for both No. 3 Texas A&M and No. 4 Texas dropped Southern California two spots down to No. 5.

This is the fifth consecutive week LSU held the top spot in the National TFRI. Tonea Marshall clocked 12.53w (+2.6) in the 100H to extend her national lead in the event, while Symone Mason moved up to No. 2 in the 100 with her 11.02. Those two teamed up with Favour Ofili and Themla Davies to post the top time in the 4×100 of 42.70.

The second-ranked Razorbacks earned three top-10 nationally ranked marks to help solidify the team’s positioning. Lauren Martinez led the way with her season best clearance of 4.39m (14-4¾) in the pole vault. That moves her to No. 6 on the Descending Order List. Tiana Wilson and Yoveinny Mota also had strong showings in their respective events: Wilson in the 400 (No. 7, 51.71); Mota in the 100H (No. 10, 12.91w (+2.8)).

The Aggies earned a boost in the National TFRI thanks to a pair of efforts that are ranked No. 3 on the Descending Order List: Charokee Young in the 400 (51.49); Deborah Acquah in the long jump (6.81m/22-4¼). Young is also part of the second-best 4×400 of the season that ran 3:26.73, while Acquah also holds the third-farthest distance in the triple jump of 13.86m (45-5 ¾).

The Longhorns saw an impressive outing from Tara Davis. Davis posted a personal best effort of 12.61w (+2.6) in the 100H to move to No. 2 nationally. That is her second top-2 performance this outdoor season, as she is also the national leader and collegiate record holder in the long jump at 7.14m (23-5.25).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Alabama, No. 7 Georgia, No. 8 Texas Tech, No. 9 Florida State and No. 10 Florida. The Crimson Tide jumped a spot from their Week 4 ranking thanks to a pair of national leading efforts from Tamara Clark and Mercy Chelengat: Clark ran 10.96 in the 100, which moves her in a tie as the seventh-fastest performer in collegiate history; Chelengat covered 5000 meters in 15:17.79.

The 2021 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held from June 9-12 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.
