Nothing changed at the very top, as UW-La Crosse still headlines the National TFRI at No. 1. The Eagles are being led this season by their sprinters, as they have three different athletes comprising four different top-10 spots in the 100 and 200 – Troy De Bruin, Josh Koenecke and Seth Holden – while all three men star on the NCAA DIII-leading 4×100 relay squad.

Wartburg leapfrogged John Carroll into the No. 2 spot, while the Blue Streaks fell to No. 3. The Knights saw Joe Freiburger run his way into the record book and to the top of the NCAA DIII Descending Order List this past weekend at the Drake Relays. Freiburger went 14:00.69 to become the tenth-fastest performer in NCAA DIII history and take over the national lead. Dallas Wright also improved his NCAA DIII lead in the 400H to 51.52.

Mount Union and UW-Eau Claire held steady at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 UW-Oshkosh, No. 7 Rowan, No. 8 Loras, No. 9 Carnegie Mellon and No. 10 UW-Stout. The Titans moved one spot closer to the top-5 thanks to a pair of No. 2 marks on the Descending Order List from Andrew George in the steeplechase (9:07.68) and the 4×100 relay team (40.95).

The 2021 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held May 27-29 at the Irwin Belk Track on the campus of North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro.
