2022 NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 3

NEW ORLEANS – We’re less than seven weeks from the 2022 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships! That means there is still plenty of time to qualify for the big meet.

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA DIII Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index for the 2022 season, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Only marks from the current season are being used, so this gives a truly comprehensive, objective look at what teams have stood out thus far in 2022.

Rowan leapfrogged Pomona-Pitzer into the No. 1 spot between Week 2 and Week 3 (The Sagehens are now ranked second). The Profs added or improved six national top-10 marks on their ledger this past weekend with notable efforts in the javelin from Edgar Rosa and from the now top-ranked 4×100 relay at 41.16. Not to be outdone, Pomona-Pitzer had a solid performance of its own with Bennett Booth-Genthe going all the way up to No. 2 in the 800 meters at 1:49.15 (Booth-Genthe is also ranked second nationally in the 1500 with his 3:47.66 from two weeks ago).

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and Carnegie Mellon remained unbothered at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. Both the Stags and the Tartans added or improved two national top-10 marks this past weekend: CMS got third-ranked efforts from both Kai Dettman (800, 1:50.58) and Daniel Sealand (1500, 3:49.64); CMU saw Andrew McGovern move up to No. 8 in the 400H at 54.22 and Casey Potrebic settle in at No. 10 on the seasonal decathlon chart with 5580 points.

Hardin-Simmons jumped three spots from No. 8 to No. 5. The Cowboys received a pair of national top-10 marks in the guise of Malik Pratt in the 400 (No. 4, 48.11) and the 4×400 relay (No. 4, 3:16.57), on which Pratt led off. All told, HSU has six national top-10 marks in 2022.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 UW-Oshkosh (up 57 spots), No. 7 Wartburg (down two spots), No. 8 Washington (Mo.), No. 9 Loras (up 10 spots) and No. 10 UW-Platteville (up 34 spots). As the weather warms up, you should continue to see notable improvements from those programs in Iowa and Wisconsin, among others.

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!
