2021 NCAA DIII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 3

NEW ORLEANS – Only four top-25 teams remained in place between Week 2 and Week of the NCAA Division III Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index!

And when only one of those teams was in the top-5, you better believe a new look top-5 and top-10 are in store when the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released the newest installment of the National TFRI on Tuesday afternoon.

UW-La Crosse is No. 1 after some notable efforts at the UW-Platteville Invitational this past weekend. The Eagles saw Abby Meidl take over the national lead in the pole vault at 3.71m (12-2), Skye Digman improve her No. 2 billing in the shot put to 13.87m (45-6¼) and the 4×100 relay team top the NCAA DIII Descending Order List at 47.62.

Loras jumped four spots from No. 6 to No. 2. The Duhawks added or improved six national top-10 marks this past weekend at the Wartburg Outdoor Select, including Kassie Rosenbum’s 16:45.82 effort that sits second on the 5000-meter list and the fourth-ranked efforts from Grace Alley and Alyssa Pfadenhauer in the heptathlon and 400, respectively.

Former No. 1 George Fox dropped two spots to No. 3, right in front of No. 4 Johns Hopkins, which didn’t budge from last week. The Blue Jays helped their cause with a trio of national top-5 marks this past weekend, including the No. 2 mark in the 5000 from Ella Baran of 16:40.85.

Mount Union climbed three spots from No. 8 to No. 5. The Purple Raiders received four new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend, including two from Kennady Gibbins.
