Loras and UW-La Crosse both leapfrogged Johns Hopkins between Week 2 and Week 3, sending the former to No. 1 and the latter to No. 2 (The Blue Jays are now ranked third). Sterling efforts allowed the Duhawks and Eagles to make those jumps: Marion Edwards (200, 25.27), Kassie Parker (3000, 9:13.10) and Alyssa Pfadenhauer (400, 55.95) all took over top spots on the Descending Order List, which include an all-time, all-conditions best from Parker in that event; the best mark for UW-La Crosse came from its now third-ranked 4×400 relay.

Johns Hopkins held its own this past weekend with two top-3 national marks, including an NCAA DIII record from Ella Baran in the mile. Baran scorched the track inside the New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory in 4:40.53, which shattered the near 17-year-old NCAA DIII standard of 4:43.92 established by Missy Buttry in 2005. Annie Gutierrez is now ranked third nationally this season in the 60-meter hurdles at 8.82.

Wartburg jumped two spots from No. 6 to No. 4 thanks to a pair of national top-5 efforts. The Knights’ distance medley relay now leads that event nationally after getting the baton around in 11:55.64, while Jackie Ganshirt notched the fifth-fastest mark this season in the 400 (57.24).

Washington (Mo.) dropped one spot from No. 4 to No. 5 in Week 3. The Bears were busy this past weekend, notching three national top-10 performances. Two of those marks were in the 800 meters thanks to Aoife Dunne (No. 6, 2:14.01) and Alessia Sarussi (No. 8, 2:14.42).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 UChicago, No. 7 Ithaca, No. 8 Mount Union, No. 9 SUNY Geneseo and No. 10 UW-Oshkosh. This is only the second time in program history that the Purple Raiders have been ranked in the top-10 for more than two weeks in a single season.

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
