USTFCCCA Division III Top 25 Rankings

The Calvin women’s track and field team has risen to the number-one spot in the most recent Division III National Rankings released this morning by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Calvin holds the top spot with 152.42 points with Illinois Wesleyan second with 144.10 points and Wisconsin-Oshkosh third with 125.15 points.

The rankings are achieved through a mathematical formulae based on current national descending order lists.  The rankings should not be confused as a “form chart” or a hard-line predictor of NCAA Championship team finishes, but as an indicator of those who have the best chances and deepest rosters to compete as the nation’s best.

Individuals and relay teams are not “ranked” by the USTFCCCA, but they hold spots on the national descending order list. A person’s spot on the national-descending order list will match their scored position within the team rankings for all weeks in Division III.

The Calvin women’s track and field team currently holds 14 spots on the NCAA III provisional or automatic qualifying lists for the upcoming NCAA III Outdoor Track and field Championships set to be held May 27-29 at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio.
