2022 NAIA Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – Here is the fourth edition of the NAIA Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index for the 2022 season, as released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are used, which means this objective ranking is comprised solely of marks from the 2022 outdoor track & field season.

British Columbia stayed at No. 1 for the third straight week. The Thunderbirds had several new top-10 marks across three different meets in California. At the Mt. SAC Relays, Dylan Uhrich regained the national lead in the steeple after running 8:57.17. At the same meet, Rowan Hamilton improved his No. 1 hammer throw to 73.66m (241-8). Hamilton’s in a league of his own, recording each of the top-10 hammer throws thus far in the NAIA. Over at the Beach Invitational, Tyler Dozzi ran the No. 3 1500 with a time of 3:51.52. Dozzi also leads the nation in the 5000. Lastly at the Bryan Clay Invitational, Josh Kozelj ran the No. 7 10,000 (30:11.67). British Columbia has a total of 11 top-10 marks after the busy weekend.

Southeastern (Fla.) remained steady at No. 2 for Week 4 after not competing last week. The Fire hold 12 top-10 marks, still led by Joseph Taylor’s No. 1 100 (10.36). He also ranks second-nationally in the 200 (20.98). Other top marks for the Fire are the 4×100 and 4×400 relays, both coming in at No. 2 and Davonte Vanterpool with the No. 2 time in the 110H (14.12). Southeastern is back in action this weekend at the The Sun Conference Outdoor Championships as they look to win their third straight conference championship.

Saint Mary (Kan.) moved up one spot to No. 3 after making their debut into the top-5 last week. The Spires earned two new top-10 marks at the Central Missouri Mule Relays to bring their team total to nine. Both new marks came in the 1500 after Liam Neidig and Luis Perez ran the No. 7 (3:52.67) and No. 9 (3:52.79) times, respectively. Luke Skinner has Saint Mary’s top mark with the No. 2 5000 (14:10.30).

The Master’s (Calif.) fell one spot to No. 4. The Mustangs have seven top-10 efforts. Poulot cleared a personal best 5.05m (16-6¾) in the pole vault at the Mt. SAC Relays. He currently ranks second-best in NAIA. Wesley Methum holds the team’s lone No. 1 mark in the 10,000 (29:39.30). No other runner has been able to surpass Methum’s time that he recorded almost a month ago. Davis Boggess leads the Mustangs with a pair of top-10 marks in the 1500 and 5000.

Indiana Tech joins the top-5 once again, moving up two spots. The Warriors had two of their relay teams move up in the rankings as the 4×100 ran 40.61 (No. 3) and the 4×800 ran 7:50.59 (No. 6) at the Tiffin Track Carnival. The Warriors have all three of their relay teams ranked in the top-10 with the 4×400 leading the nation. 4×400 member Daunte O’Banion also leads the nation in the open 400, giving the Warriors two No. 1 marks to lead their seven total top-10 efforts.

Here are the remaining top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Lewis-Clark State (Idaho), No. 7 Keiser (Fla.), No. 8 Dillard (La.), No. 9 William Carey (Miss.) and No. 10 Taylor (Ind.).

Mark your calendars for May 25-27, as that’s when the 2022 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held once again in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
