2023 NCAA DIII Men’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – We’ve dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s.

Here is the first installment of the NCAA Division III Men’s Indoor Track & Field National TFRI, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons have been used, which means this objective list is compiled solely of current qualifying marks from the 2023 indoor track & field season.

UW-Oshkosh tops the National TFRI in Week 1 and justifiably so. The Titans own 11 national top-10 efforts this year, including Jonathan Wilburn’s national-leading effort of 15.15m (49-8½) in the triple jump. Wilburn is one of six top-5 athletes for UW-Oshkosh.

Loras is ranked second to begin the season. Mike Jasa is the only national leader for the Duhawks with his 1:48.78c effort in the 800 meters, but six other athletes combine for seven more national top-10 marks. Carter Oberfoell is right behind Jasa in the 800m at 1:50.40c.

A trio of national leaders has Williams sitting third. Jackson Anderson tops the nation in both the 60-meter hurdles (8.08c) and the heptathlon (5194), while Elias Lindgren leads the way in the 5000m (14:00.54). Two other Ephs rank among the top-10 in the 5000m, too.

UW-La Crosse opened its season in a big way this past weekend and is ranked fourth. The Eagles, competing at the inaugural Pat Healy Classic, notched five national top-10 marks, which includes a pair of national-leading performances in the guise of M-F National Athlete of the Week Sam Blaskowski in the 60m at 6.70c and Ethan Gregg in the 3000m at 8:04.31c.

SUNY Cortland finds itself fifth after the first month. The Red Dragons hold six national top-10 efforts, led by Isaiah Brunache (shot put) and Dane Sorensen (pole vault), who are both ranked third nationally in their respective events.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 1: No. 6 Wartburg, No. 7 Nebraska Wesleyan, No. 8 SUNY Geneseo, No. 9 Mount Union and No. 10 MIT.

Mark your calendars for March 10-11, because that’s when the 2023 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the Birmingham Crossplex in Birmingham, Alabama.
