NEW ORLEANS – This is your official welcome to the postseason!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA DIII Men’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 gives a comprehensive, objective look at the current season at hand, which is in its final weeks!

Conference Championships Weekend totally shook up the National Rating Index, as 24 of the top-25 teams shifted spots between Week 6 and Week 7. Top-ranked Rowan was the only team that didn’t budge from its previous spot. The Profs added or improved two national top-10 marks to their ledger this past weekend, including a second-ranked effort in the long jump from Nana Agyemang (7.54m/24-9) and the fifth-ranked javelin throw from Lane Owens (63.89m/209-8). That brings Rowan’s overall total to seven on the season.

UW-Eau Claire jumped four spots from No. 6 to No. 2 after a strong performance at the WIAC Outdoor Championships. The Blugolds added or improved five national top-10 marks, two of which came from NCAA DIII indoor heptathlon record-holder Marcus Weaver. He moved up to the No. 2 spot in the decathlon with 7193 points and finds himself ranked fourth in the javelin at 64.78m (212-7). Weaver is the only man in NCAA DIII history to win both the decathlon and the javelin at the same NCAA Outdoor Championships, a feat he’ll look to replicate this year.

UW-Oshkosh is now ranked third after an eight-spot improvement. The Titans added or improved six national top-10 marks, including three in the 100 meters alone: Jaylen Grant is now ranked fourth at 10.37w; Aaron Richardson is now ranked seventh at 10.40w; and Robert Ogbuli is now ranked ninth at 10.41w. All told, UW-Oshkosh has 13 marks in either the 100 or 200 that are counted by the National TFRI (Athletes must be in the top-40 nationally).

Both Hardin-Simmons and John Carroll dropped a few spots – to no fault of their own. The Cowboys added or improved four national top-10 marks, including three from Parnelle Shands and Aidan Matthews (Shands is now ranked fourth in the 100 at 10.37w; Matthews is now ranked seventh in the 200 at 21.20; Shands and Matthews both contributed to the now fifth-ranked 4×100 relay team at 40.74). The Blue Streaks leveraged another national top-10 mark in the guise of Garrett Clark in the 200 at 21.26w.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 7: No. 6 UW-La Crosse (up six spots), No. 7 Pomona-Pitzer (down three spots), No. 8 UW-Stout (up seven spots), No. 9 Carnegie Mellon (down four spots) and No. 10 McMurry (up 15 spots).

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