Carroll College Outdoor Track Teams Once Again Top-15 Nationally

Posted: Updated:
HELENA - The Carroll College women’s outdoor track team continues their steady climb in the rankings as they moved up from 14th to 11th nationally following another strong showing at the Montana Open.  The men’s team has moved up from 17th to 15th place after the latest national rankings release. These results are from the fifth edition of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NAIA National Team Computer rankings.

“We had some exceptional performances the last couple of weeks and our effort in Missoula did not disappoint,” Carroll College head coach Harry Clark said.

The USTFCCCA NAIA National Championship Rankings are determined based on a formula of how many student-athletes teams have on the 2014 national descending order list for individual, relay events and how highly they are ranked.

On the Men’s side, Wayland Baptist (Texas) takes over the top spot with an overall point total of 428.83. On the women’s side British Columbia remains in the top spot with a point total of 545.03.

This week, Carroll College had three athletes honored by the Frontier Conference after strong performances at the Montana Open in Missoula.  Latecia Howell’s effort in the heptathlon and 400-meter standout Kara Barth were selected athletes of the week on the women’s side and Easton Padden, the defending national champion pole vaulter was named field athlete of the week for the second consecutive week after he went above 17 feet in Missoula.

“Easton is really starting to get close to doing some really special things.  He’s been such a great leader all year and he’s coming into form at the right time to defend his title,” Clark said.

Carroll College travels for the second consecutive week to Missoula, this time for the Tom Gage Classic set for Friday, May 9.
