Pomona-Pitzer continues to hold down the top spot in the National TFRI. The top-ranked Sagehens own nine national top-10 marks, which includes eight among the top-5 performers in their respective events. Pomona-Pitzer athletes dot the NCAA DIII Descending Order List in the distance events, as they captured the top-3 spots in the steeplechase (Colin Kirkpatrick leads the nation) and three of the top-4 spots in the 5000 meters (1-3-4, led by Lucas Florsheim).

Rowan and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps swapped spots: the Profs jumped to No. 2; the Stags fell to No. 3. The former has 10 national top-10 marks, which features the national leader in the javelin from Greg Poloso and two new additions in the 400-meter hurdles. The latter saw their 4×400 relay team sprint into the national lead at 3:15.17, which is part of their total of seven top-10 national marks thus far in the outdoor season.

Carnegie Mellon didn’t budge between Week 1 and Week 2. The fourth-ranked Tartans added or improved three national top-10 marks this past weekend with two in the jumps from Justin Kiefel in the triple jump (No. 3, 14.68m/48-2) and long jump (No. 7, 7.23m/23-8¼). Bram Miller is a double national leader in the discus (51.38m/168-7) and shot put (17.67m/57-11¾).

Wartburg charged seven spots from No. 12 to No. 5. The Knights added or improved three national top-10 marks to their ledger: Christopher Collett moved up to No. 4 on the Descending Order List in the steeplechase at 9:11.52; Deyton Love is now ranked sixth nationally in the 110-meter hurdles at a wind-aided 14.60; Matt Heinzman is up to No. 9 in the 1500 at 3:53.28.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Washington (Mo.) (up 13 spots), No. 7 Lynchburg (up 23 spots), No. 8 Hardin-Simmons (down three spots), No. 9 Ithaca (up six spots) and No. 10 McMurry (down 2 spots). WashU, Lynchburg and Ithaca all saw athletes take over at least one national lead, which ignited their rise.

Mark your calendars for May 26-28, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio!
