April 23, 2014

Once the favorites by more than 200 team rankings points, the Warriors are now trailed by not just one or two but three teams within approximately 135 points in No. 2 British Columbia, No. 3 Oklahoma Baptist and No. 4 Doane (Neb.).

No. 1 Concordia (Ore.) maintained a slim lead over the next three teams in line on the men’s side.

Team rankings points do not equate to NAIA Championships team points scored at the national meet, but rather the number of student-athletes a team has near the top of the descending order list in their resepctive events and how highly they are ranked.

A full explanation of the points system used in the National Team Computer Rankings can be found here.

Qualification for the NAIA Championships will not be determined in any way by these rankings, which are not officially sanctioned or endorsed by the NAIA for the 2014 season. These rankings are supported by the NAIA from the standpoint of media and entertainment purposes only.

The Indiana Tech women checked in with a team score of 554.91, down more than 37 points from a week ago.

British Columbia (465.58) took full advantage with a nearly 60-point improvement to move ahead of two-time defending indoor national champion Oklahoma Baptist (453.85) into the second position.

OBU, which registered a 23-point improvement of its own, nevertheless slid down a spot to No. 3.

Middle distance and distance events powered BC’s move to No. 2 behind a pair of top-ten performances from Rhiannon Evans at 1500 meters (No. 4) and 800 meters (No. 8), giving the Thunderbirds four different runners in the top eight in the latter. Amelie De Fenoyl boosted BC with the nation’s second-fastest run at 5000 meters.

Though Doane (Neb.) (420.07) remained stationary at No. 4, the Tigers improved by more than 96 points compared to last week to thrust themselves into the thick of the team race. Top-ranked heptathlete Erin Devries and third-ranked Karissa Blank, along with top-ranked long jumper Lauren Baird, drove the team score surge.

Rounding out the top five was stationary Wayland Baptist (Texas) (303.19).

While the team race on the women’s side is just now starting to heat up, it has been burning bright on the men’s side since week one with each of the top four teams bunched up within 40 points of one another.

Concordia (Ore.) (469.70) held its top spot, while No. 2 Wayland Baptist (Texas) (454.41) remained well within striking distance.

Defending champion Indiana Tech (435.95) held firm at No. 3, as did Oklahoma Baptist (421.34) at No. 4.

Concordia (Neb.) (273.76) rounded out the top five after moving up one spot from a week ago.

The No. 23 Morningside (Iowa) women climbed the highest this week of any NAIA top-25 team with an 88-spot leap from last time, while the biggest gainer for the men was No. 20 Northwestern (Iowa) with a 64-position improvement.

Another significant move of note was No. 8 Dickinson State (N.D.), which joined the top 10 following a 28-slot gain.

April 23, 2014

NEW ORLEANS – The dust has cleared from the removal of preseason marks from the outdoor track & field Division III National Team Computer Rankings, with both the UW-La Crosse men and women left standing tallest in Wednesday’s week four edition released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The defending national men’s champion Eagles maintained their significant edge in the men’s rankings while the women reclaimed the top spot after a brief one week respite from No. 1.

Each and every team in the women’s top 25 came in at a different spot from a week ago, while only No. 1 UW-La Crosse, No. 3 UW-Oshkosh, No. 6 North Central (Ill.) and No. 20 Moravian held firm in the men’s rankings.

Marks from the preseason may be gone, but the tight race for the top spot in the women’s rankings remained very much alive and well.

UW-La Crosse (172.95 team rankings score) moved up one position to No. 1 with two-time defending indoor team champion No. 2 UW-Oshkosh (161.74) following right behind with its own one-spot improvement.

Two-time defending outdoor team champion Wartburg (147.95) was among the hardest hit with a nearly 30-point drop from a week ago to fall from the top spot to No. 3.

No. 4 Wheaton (Mass.) (119.61) and No. 5 Cal Lutheran (100.37) rounded out the top five with improvements of two and five positions, respectively.

Two-time defending cross country team champion No. 6 Johns Hopkins (91.70) fell two positions, as did Rowan (90.99) at No. 7.

No. 8 La Verne (82.70) and No. 9 Rhodes (81.88) both leapt up 17 positions from a week ago, while Baldwin Wallace (81.11) improved four positions to complete the top 10.

The top of the men’s rankings held its shape slightly better than the women’s with No. 1 UW-La Crosse (233.83 team rankings score) maintaining an approximately 100-point lead over the next-best ranked team.

Mount Union (132.60) is that team this week after climbing three positions from a week ago, bypassing No. 3 UW-Oshkosh (122.60).

Augustana (Ill.) (118.50) burst into the top five at No. 4 after a 10-spot gain, while UW-Eau Claire (104.43) fell three from a week ago.

Behind stationary No. 6 North Central (Ill.) (81.66) were No. 7 UW-Whitewater (78.62) down three spots, No. 8 Haverford (78.55) – powered by National Athlete of the Week Avi Bregman – up 26 spots, No. 9 Wabash (78.20) up 10 and No. 10 Wartburg (75.20) down two.

The No. 18 Washington and Lee men’s 66-position jump was the biggest of the week, while the top women’s move was made by No. 13 Ohio Wesleyan with a 46-spot increase.

The purpose and methodology of the rankings is to create an index that showcases the teams that have the best potential of achieving the top spots in the national team race. Rankings points do not equate with NCAA Championships team points. A full description of the rankings can be found here.

Adams State Men & Women Surging Toward the Top of the DII National Team Rankings
April 22, 2014

While the No. 2 men of ASU surged ever closer to defending outdoor national champion No. 1 Saint Augustine’s, their teammates on the women’s squad made a big two-position surge to No. 2 right on the heels of top-ranked Grand Valley State.

National Athlete of the Week Alicia Nelson’s top-ranked 1500 meter and 5000 meter performances, along with four other top-10 performances this past weekend at multiple meets in California, drove the Adams State women’s team rankings score to 193.17 after a gain of nearly 38 points.

Team rankings scores do not mirror the points systems used at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, but rather measure team depth based on their student-athletes’ positioning on the national descending order lists.

No. 1 Grand Valley State (219.26) kept its grip on the top spot with eight performances this weekend ranked in the top 10. The Lakers were the only team in the women’s rankings to hold steady in its position from a week ago

Newly crowned CIAA champion Johnson C. Smith (165.69) fell one spot to No. 3, Saint Augustine’s (151.45) improved three positions to No. 4 and Lincoln (Mo.) (146.76) rounded out the top five with a two-slot drop.

The bottom half of the top 10 was equally close and active with No. 6 Ashland (134.80) up two spots, No. 7 Angelo State (134.15) down two, No. 8 Central Missouri (122.62) up one, No. 9 Chico State (95.31) down three and No. 10 New Mexico Highlands (88.20) up four.

Adams State’s men (238.44) made the biggest strides of any top-25 team in terms of team rankings score with a nearly 44-point improvement. Leading the way was Kevin Batt with a DII-leading 1500 meters performance and five other top-10 performances.

CIAA Champions for the 17th consecutive season, the No. 1 Saint Augustine’s men (262.22) saw their team rankings score fall by close to 30 points to make for a 70-point swing when considering Adams State’s rise.

The remained of the top five held firm: No. 3 Texas A&M-Kingsville (184.01), No. 4 Ashland (177.01) and No. 5 Chico State (125.43).

As close as Saint Augustine’s and Adams State are at No. 1 and No. 2, the race for spots six through 10 is even closer with just six points between them.

No. 6 Alaska Anchorage (98.72) jumped five spots, No. 7 Academy of Art (96.25) was down one, No. 8 Minnesota State (95.72) was up six, No. 9 Angelo State (94.28) down two and No. 10 GVSU (92.69) held steady.

The No. 22 U-Mary women made the biggest move of the week with a 14-spot improvement from a week ago, while that distinction on the men’s side went to No. 25 Virginia State with a nine-spot leap.

The purpose and methodology of the rankings is to create an index that showcases the teams that have the best potential of achieving the top spots in the national team race. Rankings points do not equate with NCAA Championships team points. A full description of the rankings can be found here.

Oregon Men Land Atop Latest Outdoor T&F Division I National Team Rankings
April 22, 2014

NEW ORLEANS – For the first time since 2009 the Oregon men have landed atop the Division I National Team Computer Rankings in its week three edition released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

In the final edition of the polls before preseason marks are removed from the calculations in week four, Oregon’s men overtook the reigning national co-champion Florida Gators as part of a top-10 shakeup while the women’s top 10 was, by comparison, largely unchanged.

Behind the year’s second-fastest 5000 meters performance by Trevor Dunbar in 13:32.38, the Duck men saw a nearly 29-point improvement to its team rankings score for a total of 335.91.

Team rankings scores do not mirror the points systems used at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, but rather measure team depth in a national championship setting based on their student-athletes’ positioning on the national descending order lists. A more detailed explanation can be found here.

Oregon was last ranked this highly in week six of the 2009 season after occupying the top spot for three of the five preceding weeks. The Ducks would ultimately finish as runners-up at NCAAs.

By contrast, Florida fell to No. 2 after dropping nearly 13 points from its team rankings score. The Gators are still well within striking distance of Oregon with its 319.42 team rankings score.

Also switching spots from last week were defending national co-champion No. 3 Texas A&M (296.33) and No. 4 Arkansas (275.74).

Newly crowned ACC Champion Florida State (195.62) held firm at No. 5.

In fact, FSU was the only stationary team in the top 10 as No. 6 Georgia (181.05) moved up three spots and No. 8 LSU (157.24) improved two, while No. 7 Wisconsin (181.00) dropped one and No. 9 Alabama (157.13) and No. 10 Texas Tech (153.36) both fell two.

Meanwhile in the women’s rankings, stationary was the name of the game as each of the top six teams held firm from a week ago before the inevitable reshuffling awaiting next week with the removal of preseason marks from the rankings formula.

The top four teams did start to congeal a bit more as No. 1 Texas A&M (383.21) and No. 2 Florida (342.16) both came back to the pack while No. 3 Texas (336.80) improved by nearly 17 points and five-time defending indoor champ No. 4 Oregon (288.96) skyrocketed nearly 40 points.

Rounding out the aforementioned top six were No. 5 Georgia (230.06) and No. 6 Kentucky (205.89).

As impressive as Oregon’s team rankings score improvement was, it wasn’t even the best in the top 10. That distinction went to ACC Champion Florida State at No. 10 (157.11) after a nearly 43-point jump led to a five-position increase.

Not far behind was No. 7 Southern California (196.12), which jumped two spots after a nearly 41-point increase.

Rounding out the top 10 were No. 8 LSU (178.14) and No. 9 Arkansas (169.86), both of which were down a spot to make room for Southern California.

Oklahoma State’s men and women both had impressive weekends, as the Cowboys were the week’s biggest top-25 gainer by position with a 12-slot improvement to No. 22 and the No. 21 Cowgirls made the best jump in the women’s top 25 with a nine spot increase.

The purpose and methodology of the rankings is to create an index that showcases the teams that have the best potential of achieving the top spots in the national team race. Rankings points do not equate with NCAA Championships team points. A full description of the rankings can be found here.

Preseason marks will be included in the rankings calculations through the week three edition.

Keflezighi, Jeptoo Win Historic 118th Boston Marathon


BOSTON (Monday, April 21, 2014) - One year after an explosive attack rocked the Boylston Street finish lin e, Monday's running of the Boston Marathon -- the 118th edition of the world's oldest modern 26.2-mile race -- was all about redemption. An emotional day for runners, spectators, race organizers and especially for the bombing survivors, today's race set out to define the #BostonStrong spirit.


The intense emotion fueled competitive passion in the elite competition, where 2004 Olympic silver medalist and
Meb Keflezighi (right, photo credit Peter Maksimow) became the first American man since Greg Meyer (1983) to win the men's race. The 38-year-old Keflezighi's winning time was 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 37 seconds - a personal best for the 2009 NYC Marathon champion.


In the women's race, USA favorite and hometown hero
Shalane Flanagan ran a gutsy race, pushing the pace and leading for more than 20 miles, but ultimtately it was
Rita Jeptoo of Kenya who repeated as the women's champion. The 33-year-old won her third Boston title with a course record 2:18:57 and was more than 7 minutes faster than her 2013 victory last year.



In the men's race, from the sounding gun it was Keflezighi's race to lose. The 38-year-old, who emigrated to the U.S. from Eritrea when he was a child, made an aggressive opening move. He was at the front of a 22-strong pack through 5K (15:09), and as the race began to unfold, notched up the pace with only fellow American Josphat Bolt being able to stick with him. At the 8-mile mark, the pair had an 8-second lead over the rest of the field,

Gebremeskel Holds Off True, Huddle Runs Down Daska at BAA 5K


BOSTON - The 2014 B.A.A. 5K was one for the ages, as thousands of runners took to the streets of Boston in celebration. Ethiopia's Dejen Gebremeske l set a new men's event record of 13 minutes, 26 seconds, while Providence, Rhode Island's Molly Huddle came from behind to win the women's race in 15:12. In total, more than 8,600 runners finished the race, held two days prior to the 118th Boston Marathon.


Under crystal clear skies, runners from around the nation and world came to Boston Common ready to race 3.1 miles through Boston's picturesque Back Bay neighborhood.


Moments after the starting horn sounded, Gebremeskel, 24, bolted into the lead, taking control of the pace early on. As reigning champion, Gebremeskel was determined to claim yet another B.A.A. 5K crown.


Splitting one mile in 4:23, Gebremeskel was joined by
Daniel Salel (KEN), Stephen Sambu (KEN), Lani Rutto (KEN), and Yarmouth, Maine native Ben True. The pack would remain together through mile two (8:49), crossing the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street as one.


Not until the final straight would a champion be determined. Gebremeskel, 2012 Olympic silver medalist at 5000 meters, turned to another gear on Charles Street, one that was only matched by two-time B.A.A. 5K champion True.


In a photo finish, it was Gebremeskel ahead of True by a hair. Both finished with a new event record time of 13:26.

Olympic Stars to Greet, Coach Peachtree Jr. Runners


ATLANTA - There will be so mething special waiting to greet
Peachtree Jr. participants when they cross the finish line in Piedmont Park this year: Olympic and World Champions.



Besides being cheered on by some of the top athletes in the world, each of the estimated 3000 young runners on May 17 will-for the first time in the 28-year history of the Atlanta Track Club event-have the opportunity to sample new track-and -field disciplines under the hands-on guidance of Olympic superstars.



"At Atlanta Track Club, we believe our best chance at getting kids active through running is to introduce them to multiple disciplines in the sport, hoping that the experiences we offer will keep them engaged and involved with running in some way," said Rich Kenah, executive director of Atlanta Track Club. "Local Olympic stars will not only reward them for their great effort in Peachtree Jr., but hopefully inspire them by giving them a close-up look at where that effort can take them. Who knows, maybe one day some of our Peachtree Jr. runners will win Olympic medals of their own."

Back to Boston: Running USA CEO Statement


by Rich Harshbarger, Running USA CEO


One year ago today, our sport and industry was rocked by a deliberate, deadly act of senseless violence that shocked and angered the nation and world. Immediately, the running community and Americans at-large responded with an outpouring of love and support for those injured and impacted.







On our blog in the tumultuous days after the event, we wrote: "The people who produce running events and road races in this country are some of the best people there are. They are kind, compassionate, logical, smart business people. They work in an industry that brings out the best in its participants. Everything they do, every decision they make, is for the runners."



In the 12 months since this incident, our sport has worked hard to ensure that participants and attendees are as safe as possible when they run or attend a race. Whether your race is a 500-person local 5K or a major marathon produced by a large production company, the emphasis on safety and security is equally important.



At Running USA, our mission has been to support the hundreds of races throughout the nation that make up our membership. During our sold-out 11th annual conference in San Diego this year, we held numerous sessions that focused on safety, planning, communication and liability protection. And the closing session of the event was led by Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray, who spoke emotionally about his personal experiences on that life-changing day one year ago. "There are no mistakes, only lessons learned," he told us. We have all learned important lessons from last year's tragedy.



We value our role as a clearinghouse for exchanging and sharing information about the sport and industry of running, which we all hold so dearly. Today, we would like to congratulate the Boston Marathon, Boston Athletic Association, sponsors and volunteers who produce such a world class, inspiring event. To the runners and spectators - have a wonderful day in Boston. We are all rooting for you. Together, we are Boston Strong!



From time to time. I would like to use this space to share thoughts about our sport/industry and profile races, trends, technology and issues that impact the business of running. If you would like to contact me, please email rich@runningusa.org

NEW ORLEANS – Good things came in pairs – or triples, for that matter – for this week’s collegiate outdoor track & field National Athletes of the Week, announced Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

For Florida State senior Dentarius Locke (Tampa, Fla./Chamberlain HS), his pair of wins at 100 meters and in the 4×100 at the ACC Championships, along with third-place showings at 200 meters and in the 4×400 relay, contributed heavily not only to his Division I Men’s National Athlete of the Week honors but also FSU’s conference title.

The senior won at 100 meters in a season-best 10.16 (+1.0 m/s) after a 10.20 (+0.6 m/s) showing in the prelims. His third-place finish at 200 meters came in a season-best 20.75 (+0.5 m/s). Combined with the two relay performances, Locke was a key force in holding off North Carolina for the team title, 113-110.

Division I Women’s National Athlete of the Week senior Laura Roesler of Oregon (Fargo, N.D./Fargo South HS) may not have doubled at the Mt. SAC Relays this weekend, but her 2:00.54 victory at 800 meters was her second nation-leading performance over the span of the past two weeks after a 2:01.10 in the beginning of April.

After a sub-60 first lap, the senior maneuvered from a traffic jam in the middle of the pack and into the lead with 200 meters to go before shutting the door on the field in the final 100 meters to win by more than half a second. The performance moved her to No. 8 on the all-time collegiate performers list and improved her standing at No. 2 in the world for 2014.

This is her second career award after also winning it during the 2014 indoor season.

Adams State senior Alicia Nelson (Craig, Colo./Moffat County HS) claimed Division II Women’s National Athlete of the Week honors after moving to the top of the DII list not just at 5000 meters at the Mt. SAC Relays but also at 1500 meters at the Beach Invitational – after taking the steeplechase lead earlier in April.

Her 10th-place 16:13.94 showing at Mt. SAC put her atop the 5k list by more than 22 seconds, while her third-place 4:22.70 at Azusa Pacific tops the list by more than two seconds. This is her second career honor after earning it during the 2013 outdoor season.

Division II Men’s National Athlete of the Week Kirk Wilson of Shorter (Phoenix, Ariz./Raymond S. Kellis HS) entered the Peach Belt Championships as the DII leader at 100 and 200 meters, and finished it as a league champion in both events.

The senior won at 200 meters with a new DII-leading time of 20.69 (+1.8 m/s) to win by nearly a third of a second, and took the 100 meters crown in 10.57 (-1.2 m/s). He also ran a leg of the winning 4×100.

Haverford senior Avi Bregman (Nashville, Tenn./University School of Nashville) didn’t follow the same "pairs" theme as the rest of the National Athletes of the Week, but the Division III men’s honoree made up for it with the 10th-fastest 3000-meter steeplechase performance in Division III history.

In the mostly Division I and II field at the Princeton Larry Ellis Invitational, Bregman finished 10th in 8:51.30 to equal the No. 10 spot on the all-time list. The performance was a season-best by nearly 17 seconds and a career-best by more than eight.

Wheaton (Mass.) senior Ashante Little (Seabrook, N.H./Winnacunnet HS) earned Division III Women’s National Athlete of the Week honors behind pair of Division III-leading performances over a quarter of a mile at the Fitchburg State Spring Meet.

Not only did she win the 400-meter hurdles in a career-best 1:00.01 by nearly four seconds, she also took the 400 meters title in an outdoor season’s best 55.84 to take the win by nearly two seconds.

This marks her second time earning the award after also doing so in the 2014 indoor season.

National Athletes of the Week are announced each Monday throughout the season, with male and female awards for all three NCAA Divisions. Nominations are open to the public and can be completed here.

THE RACE FOR THE WOMEN'S BOWERMAN TROPHY LOADED WITH NATIONAL TEAM RACE CONNECTIONS
April 17, 2014

NEW ORLEANS – The race for the women’s NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field team crown is heating up and crossing over more than ever into the race for collegiate track & field’s highest individual honor: The Bowerman Trophy.

The April edition of the Women’s Watch List for The Bowerman announced Thursday featured four teams – all ranked within the top six in the most recent National Team Computer Rankings – with pairs of student-athletes represented on the Watch List.

Top-ranked Texas A&M, No. 3 Texas, No. 4 Oregon and No. 6 Kentucky are all duking it out in the rankings for positioning in the national team title race, all while some of their top student-athletes battle for consideration for the prestigious The Bowerman Trophy.

The Bowerman Women’s Watch List – April 2014
(Click student-athletes’ names for biographies & Notes)


NAME YEAR SCHOOL EVENTS HOMETOWN
Morolake Akinosun SO Texas Sprints Aurora, Ill.
Kamaria Brown JR Texas A&M Sprints Baton Rouge, La.
Dezerea Bryant JR Kentucky Sprints Milwaukee, Wis.
Abbey D’Agostino SR Dartmouth Distance Topsfield, Mass.
Phyllis Francis SR Oregon Mid-Distance Queens, N.Y.
Kendra Harrison JR Kentucky Hurdles/Sprints Clayton, N.C.
Kaitlin Petrillose SO Texas Pole Vault Round Rock, Texas
Laura Roesler SR Oregon Mid-Distance Fargo, N.D.
Shelbi Vaughan SO Texas A&M Throws Mansfield, Texas
Kendell Williams FR Georgia Combined Events Marietta, Ga.

Also Receiving Votes: Remona Burchell (Alabama); Julia Ratcliffe (Princeton); Shanieka Thomas (San Diego State)





Top-ranked Texas A&M, represented all season long by junior sprinter Kamaria Brown, added collegiate-leadingsophomore discus thrower Shelbi Vaughan to the Watch List. Vaughan has been a dominant force this season with a 199-3 (60.74m) career best and the top seven throws of the collegiate season.

Lone Star State rival Texas added a second sophomore Watch List member of their own as sprinter Morolake Akinosun joined collegiate pole vault leader sophomore Kaitlin Petrillose.

Akinosun ran a wind-aided 11.13 (+2.7 m/s) to win the Texas Relays 100 meters over rival Watch List member Dezerea Bryant of Kentucky. Petrillose, meanwhile, continues to soar in the pole vault after her indoor national title with the top two clearances of the 2014 collegiate outdoor season.

Fresh of their fifth consecutive indoor national team title, No. 4 Oregon’s senior duo of sprinter Phyllis Francis andmiddle-distance runner Laura Roesler remained on the Watch List. Roesler’s young outdoor season already includes a collegiate-leading 2:01.10 in her signature 800 meters race.

The duo’s appearances increases the Ducks’ nation-best total Women’s Watch List appearances count to 54, well ahead of Texas A&M’s 32. The Watch List debuted in 2010, one year after the debut of The Bowerman itself.

Junior sprinter Dezerea Bryant of Kentucky remained on the Watch List, and was rejoined for the second time this season by junior hurdler Kendra Harrison, who owns the top qualifying spot in the 100-meter hurdles at 12.68w (+2.1m/s) and the No. 2 spot in the 400-meter hurdles at 56.60.

Not to be left out of the national team rankings conversation, No. 5 Georgia was represented by frosh heptathlete Kendell Williams for the second consecutive edition. After crushing the indoor pentathlon U.S. Junior Record twice earlier this season, she already obliterated the U.S. Junior heptathlon in her first collegiate combined event.

Her collegiate-leading 6018 smashed the previous record of 5678 by Ellannee Richardson of Washington State in 1999, and the all-conditions U.S. Junior best of 5754w by UCLA’s Jackie Joyner-Kersee in 1981.

Rounding out the Watch List was active all-time appearances leader senior distance runner Abbey D’Agostino of Dartmouth for the 10th time. Though she has yet to debut outdoors in 2014, she became the 10th woman since the beginning of the Watch List in 2010 to have been included 10 or more times.

Dropping from the Watch List proper into the "also receiving votes" category were Alabama’s Remona Burchell and San Diego State’s Shanieka Thomas. The duo was joined by hammer-throwing sophomore Julia Ratcliffe of Princeton.

The SEC improved its all-time appearances count to 115, but was joined by the Pac-12 in the triple-digits as it hit an even 100. Prior to this edition of the rankings, only the SEC women and men (119) had surpassed the century mark.

Biographies on each of the members of the Watch List can be found here.



ABOUT THE BOWERMAN
The Bowerman Trophy, which was first awarded in 2009, is presented annually by the USTFCCCA to the most outstanding male and female collegiate track & field athletes in the nation.

Indiana’s Derek Drouin and Clemson’s Brianna Rollins are the reigning winners of The Bowerman, which is named for legendary Oregon track & field and cross country coach Bill Bowerman. In addition to their collegiate achievements, Rollins is the reigning World Champion in the 100 meter hurdles — an event for which she also holds the American Record — while Drouin has won bronze medals at both the 2012 Olympics and 2013 IAAF World Championships.

Past winners include Olympic gold medalist, World Champion and decathlon world-record holder Ashton Eaton (2010); 10,000-meter Olympic silver medalist Galen Rupp (2009); and 2011 IAAF World Champion at 1500 meters, Jenny Simpson (2009).

In total, the winners from the award’s first four years have won three Olympic Medals, six World Championships (one relay, two indoor) and 11 World Championships medals (two relay, one indoor). When considering finalists for the award, 13 individuals have earned a combined six Olympic medals, eight World Championships (one relay, four indoor) and 23 World Championships medals (three realy, six indoor).

Former winners of and finalists for The Bowerman currently hold 21 national records. Each former winner of the men’s Bowerman Trophy holds at least two national records, while two of the five women’s winners are current national record-holders.

Bowerman served the sport of track and field in numerous ways. His leadership in the USTFCCCA’s predecessor organization, the National Collegiate Track Coaches Association, and his contributions to NCAA track and field and the running community as a whole are among his many lasting legacies.

The Warm-Up Lap: ACC Championships and Mt. SAC Relays Top the Weekend Outdoor T&F Schedule

The Warm-Up Lap: ACC Championships and Mt. SAC Relays Top the Weekend Outdoor T&F Schedule
April 17, 2014

NEW ORLEANS – As this painfully protracted winter forces yet another round of cancelled outdoor track & field meets in the Upper Midwest and the Northeast, it might be difficult to believe that conference championship season is already upon us.

Top 10 Teams in Action

Nevertheless, ten NCAA conferences between all three Divisions will crown their team champions this weekend, headlined most notably by the ACC Championships this Thursday, April 17, through Saturday, April 19, at North Carolina. More information can be found on the USTFCCCA’s Conference Championships Central page.

While some are battling for team glory this weekend, others are in qualifying mode at one of the season’s most largest and most prestigious meets, the Mt. SAC Relays, also April 17-19 in Walnut, Calif. Throngs of teams from all three NCAA Divisions and the NAIA will be represented, including many among the Top 10 listed below.

Being two high caliber meets with completely different goals, choosing one over the other for Division I National Meet of the Week is like comparing apples and oranges, so the two split the honor.

The Division II Meet of the Week is shaping up to be the CIAA Championships, Division III’s Meet of the Week is the Augustana (Ill.) Meet of Champions/Invitational and the NAIA Meet of the Week is the Sooner Athletic Conference Championship.

Info on each of these meets, plus the more than 120 other meets going on around the nation this weekend can be found on the USTFCCCA InfoZone "This Weekend’s Meets" page.

At the ACC Championships, the No. 5 Florida State men and the No. 15 FSU women will look to become just the third school in ACC history to sweep the indoor and outdoor league titles in the same season. FSU’s women will have a particularly tough challenge on their side, with No. 22 Notre Dame and No. 24 Maryland also aiming for the ACC title.

Check the broadcast schedule below for when you can tune in to ESPN3.com and watch live.

Two men on the most recent Watch List for The Bowerman Trophy will be in action with Florida State’s James Harris in the high jump and 200 meters, and Duke’s Curtis Beach in the decathlon and the long jump.

Other events to especially watch for include the men’s 400 (No. 3 Brycen Spratling of Pitt vs. No. 4 Patrick Feeney and No. 6 Christopher Geisting of Notre Dame vs. No. 10 Ceo Ways of North Carolina) and the women’s 400 (No. 5 Jordan Lavender of Virginia vs. No. 6 Shakima Wimbley of Miami vs. No. 9 Margaret Bamgbose of Notre Dame).

Also keep an eye on Division I men’s 5000 meters leader Nick Happe of Notre Dame against a field with as many as seven other top-25 competitors, and a top-four showdown in the women’s pole vault between No. 2 Megan Clark of Duke and No. 4 Martina Schultze of Virginia Tech.

Meanwhile at Mt. SAC many of the top collegians in the country will be rubbing elbows with some of the world’s best professionals as they try to lock up qualifying times to the East and West Preliminaries on the road to the national championships.

Members of The Bowerman Watch List (post-NCAA Indoor) who will be in action include Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino (5000 meters invite) and Oregon’s Phyllis Francis (400 meters invite) and Laura Roesler (800 meters invite) on the women’s side.

Men’s Watch List members in action include Arkansas’ Jarrion Lawson (long jump invite) and returning 2013 Finalist Julian Wruck of UCLA (discus invite).

The guys over at Flotrack will be broadcasting live from the meet and will be dissecting this loaded meet in depth over the next few days. Be sure to look at the broadcast schedule below for when they’ll be on the air and their Mt. SAC Relays 2014 page for more info on the meet.

More elite relay action will take place elsewhere around the country at the Kansas Relays and the Oregon Relays, both of which can be watched live depending on your location and/or cable provider. Check thebroadcast schedule below for more info.

Last week’s Johnson C. Smith Invitational – itself a Division II National Meet of the Week – was a dress rehearsal for this week’s top DII action, the CIAA Championships. The Friday-Saturday meet at Virginia State will feature defending national men’s champion No. 1 Saint Augustine’s and the No. 2 Johnson C. Smith women.

JCS’s women will take on No. 7 Saint Augustine’s and No. 24 Livingstone.

Division III’s National Meet of the Week at Augustana (Ill.) will feature No. 8 UW-Whitewater’s women against No. 23 Monmouth (Ill.) on Thursday, and the No. 4 UW-Whitewater men against No. 14 Augustana and No. 18 Carthage on Friday.

NAIA’s Meet of the Week, the Friday-Saturday Sooner Athletic Conference Championships, will feature top-10 match-ups for both the men and the women. On the men’s side No. 2 Wayland Baptist will square off with No. 4 Oklahoma Baptist and No. 7 Oklahoma City, while the women’s meet is headlined by No. 2 Oklahoma Baptist against No. 5 Wayland Baptist.
