Wartburg continues to headline the most recent edition of the National TFRI that was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The Knights helped their cause this past weekend as they added four new or improved national top-10 marks to their ledger: Dallas Wright and Deyton Love are now ranked No. 3 and No. 4 in the 110H at 14.27 and 14.28, respectively; Derrick Smith improved his seasonal bests in the 100 and 200, hitting 21.28 in the latter and 10.58 in the former for the No. 4 and No. 8 efforts.

UW-La Crosse held steady at No. 2 following a weekend that saw them add or improve three new national top-10 marks. The Eagles’ biggest boost came from Dillon Murman in the 110H, as he is now ranked sixth nationally at 14.41. Tommy Knochie (pole vault) and Michael Madoch (15000) are both ranked eighth in their respective events.

UW-Oshkosh, ranked third, saw three strong efforts this past weekend that cracked the national top-10. The 4×100 relay got the baton around in 40.84 to move up to No. 2 nationally, while Steven Potter notched the third-best time of the season in the 800 at 1:50.39 and Jamyle Brantley is now ranked ninth in the long jump at 7.30m (23-11½).

Fourth-ranked UW-Eau Claire swapped spots with now fifth-ranked Rowan. Only the Blugold was able to add or improve a national top-10 mark this past weekend as Mitch Stegman cleared 5.01m (16-5¼) to become the fourth-best seasonal performer.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 8: No. 6 John Carroll, No. 7 UW-Stout, No. 8 Mount Union, No. 9 Loras and No. 10 Washington (Mo.). The Bears were the Biggest Mover of the Week in the top-10, as they jumped four spots since Week 7, largely due to their now top-ranked 4×400 relay that covered four laps in 3:10.82.

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