2022 NCAA DIII Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 2

NEW ORLEANS – What a month!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index, which was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are used, as this is a comprehensive, objective look at what teams have done during the 2022 indoor season only.

Johns Hopkins continues to lead the National TFRI at No. 1. The Blue Jays flooded the Descending Order List with nine national top-10 marks, which includes six in the top-5. Ella Baran owns two of those with her 3000 (No. 3, 9:36.90) and mile (No. 4, 4:51.03), as does Annie Gutierrez thanks to her mark in the 60 hurdles (No. 3, 8.88) and pentathlon (No. 4, 3499). Alex Ross currently sits second nationally in the 5000 with her mark of 16:52.23f.

Loras has been a mainstay in the top-5 and is ranked second in Week 2. The Duhawks own eight national top-10 marks, of which six reside in the top-5: Marion Edwards has her hand in three of those with the No. 2 mark in the 200 (25.49f), No. 4 mark in the 60 (7.73) and is a member of the top-ranked 4×400 relay (3:53.14). Kassie Parker continues to lead the nation in the mile at 4:50.29f, while Grace Alley has two top-5 marks in the pentathlon (No. 3, 3531) and triple jump (No. 5, 11.82m/38-9½).

UW-La Crosse is a perennial powerhouse and improved its rank eight spots to No. 3 in Week 2. Field event athletes have propelled the Eagles so far this season, as all seven of the national top-10 efforts have come off the track. Hannah Zenkovich leads the nation in the pentathlon with 3664 points, while Skye Digman owns the No. 2 spot in the shot put at 14.72m (48-3½) and No. 3 effort in the weight throw at 18.10m (59-4¾). Olivia Owens (high jump) and Jessica Stelzner (long jump) are both ranked fifth nationally in their respective events.

Washington (Mo.) made the most of the first two months of the season and is ranked No. 4. The Bears snared eight national top-10 marks, including five top-5 efforts. Emma Kelley has chipped in two of those with her national-leading effort in the 800 of 2:10.86f and the third-best open 400 of the season at 57.32f. Lauren Gay (200) and Ebunoluma Opata (triple jump) both have a fourth-ranked billing in their respective events (Gay is also ranked seventh in the 60 hurdles).

UChicago stepped up and has been rewarded justly with its No. 5 spot. The Maroons notched seven national top-10 marks this season with four top-5 efforts. Isabel Maletich is the national leader in the long jump at 5.86m (19-2¾) and second nationally in the triple jump at 12.01m (39-5), while Claudia Hartnett is ranked second nationally in the 800 at 2:12.18 and Loren Brown registered the fourth-best clocking in the 60H this season of 8.89.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Wartburg, No. 7 SUNY Geneseo, No. 8 UW-Oshkosh, No. 9 Williams and No. 10 Ithaca. The Ephs had a strong weekend and jumped 21 spots since Week 1.

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, because that’s when the 2021 NCAA DIII Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
