NEW ORLEANS – Let’s take a look at the newest NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index that was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

None of the top-10 teams remained in place as the winds of change swept through the nation between Week 1 and Week 2 after a busy weekend of competition.

John Carroll jumped two spots from No. 3 to No. 1 thanks to its efforts at the Sparky Adams Invitational this past weekend. Alex Phillip and Jamie Dailey starred in the 10,000 meters as they notched the No. 1 (29:30.12) and No. 3 (29:49.21) marks on the NCAA DIII Descending Order List, respectively. Those marks, coupled with a pair of national leads from Ian Pierson in the 1500 (3:53.05) and steeplechase (9:15.99) go a long way to helping their cause.

Lynchburg also improved two spots from No. 4 to No. 2. The Hornets received a chart-topping mark from Sam Llanez in the 800 (1:52.05) as well as the No. 2 billing in the 10,000 meters from Frank Csorba (29:37.97). Those are two of Lynchburg’s 10 national top-10 efforts.

Mount Union dropped from No. 2 to No. 3 to no fault of its own. The Purple Raiders added or improved three national top-10 marks this past weekend, including the No. 5 mark in the 200 from Tyler Gill (21.75w) and the No. 7 mark in the triple jump from Brody Coleman (14.33m/47-0¼).

UW-La Crosse soared five spots from No. 9 to No. 4. The Eagles are now proud owners of nine national top-10 marks, including two of the top-3 efforts over 200 meters: Troy DeBruin sits No. 2 at 21.51w; Seth Holden is ranked third at 21.55w. Tommy Knoche topped 4.88m (16-0) in the pole vault to earn a top-5 spot in that event.

Rowan went from No. 6 in Week 1 to No. 5 in Week 2. The Profs hold eight national top-10 marks, including a chart-topper from Dan McALevey in the javelin at 62.36m (204-7).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 George Fox, No. 7 McMurry, No. 8 UW-Stout, No. 9 UW-Oshkosh and No. 10 Carnegie Mellon.

The 2021 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships are set to be held from May 27-29 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
