UW-La Crosse bolstered its position at the top of the National TFRI with 12 new or improved national top-10 marks. The Eagles now have multiple national top-10 marks in the 100H, pole vault, hammer throw and heptathlon. Just this past weekend, UW-La Crosse saw Hannah Zenkovich move up to No. 2 on the seasonal chart in the multi and its 4×100 and 4×400 relay teams both take over the No. 1 spot.

John Carroll jumped seven spots from No. 9 to No. 2. The Blue Streaks own 12 national top-10 marks this season, including No. 2 billing in the 4×400 relay of 3:52.69 from its effort this past weekend at the OAC Elite Meet. Taylor Anthony is now ranked fifth in the 100 at 12.07.

UW-Eau Claire soared 29 spots to No. 3, right in front of No. 4 Loras and No. 5 Ithaca. The Blugolds starred at the Ashton-Ester Invitational hosted by UW-La Crosse. None of those efforts were bigger than Megan Wallace’s record-breaking performance in the heptathlon. Wallace bettered a 29-year-old NCAA DIII all-time best by four points with her 5471 total. During the multi, Wallace also took over the NCAA DIII lead in the long jump at 5.77m (18-11¼). Wallace wasn’t the only one to star, as Kady Kochendorfer is now No. 2 on the seasonal chart in the triple jump at 12.01m (39-5). 

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Johns Hopkins, No. 7 SUNY Geneseo, No. 8 George Fox, No. 9 Nebraska Wesleyan and No. 10 Mount Union.

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.
