2022 NCAA DIII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – We’re about to hit crunch time!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA DIII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are being used, so this is a comprehensive, objective look at the current campaign at hand.

Washington (Mo.) and Loras are still at the top of the National TFRI, albeit in a different order than last week. The Bears leapfrogged the Duhawks into the No. 1 spot, dropping the latter to No. 2. WashU added or improved eight national top-10 marks this past weekend, which included four that rank among the top-5: Yasmin Ruff in the pole vault (No. 3, 3.84m/12-7¼); Alicia Gupta in the triple jump (No. 5, 12.07m/39-7¼); as well as the 4×400 (No. 2, 3:49.20) and 4×100 relays (No. 3, 47.08). Loras had several strong efforts itself, including the nation’s second-fastest 4×100 relay of 46.77, which pairs well with its top-ranked 4×400 relay.

UW-La Crosse jumped five spots from No. 8 to No. 3 in Week 5. The Eagles added or improved six national top-10 marks this past weekend, including a national-leading effort in the heptathlon from Hannah Zenkovich at 5033 points. Emma Lawrence is now ranked third nationally in the 100-meter hurdles at 14.07, with the 4×100 and 4×400 relays of which she is a part ranked fourth and third, respectively, at 47.09 and 3:50.00.

Johns Hopkins dropped one spot to No. 4 to no fault of its own. The Blue Jays added or improved four national top-10 marks – none bigger than Ella Baran’s 15:49.09 effort over 5000 meters that is now the national leader and second-fastest performance in NCAA DIII history.

SUNY Geneseo fell one spot to No. 5 between Week 4 and Week 5. The Knights were unable to add or improve any national top-10 marks this past weekend, but saw Anna Flaitz move within a few spots of that threshold in the 400 meters with her now 12th-ranked effort of 56.67.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 UChicago (up 35 spots), No. 7 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (down two spots), No. 8 Nebraska Wesleyan (down two spots), No. 9 Trine (up two spots) and No. 10 George Fox (down three spots).

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