15. Victor Moreau, Academy of Art (0 / 15)

Idle.


14. Daniel Wallis, Queens (N.C.) (Unranked)

Wallis ran his way to a personal best in the 3000 meters this weekend at the JDL DMR Invitational. He ran a raw time of 8:17.58 which, after the track conversion, converted down to 8:11.86 which is the #11 time this year.


13. Devundrick Walker, CSU-Pueblo (+1 / 14)

Idle.


12. Felix Wammetsberger, Queens (N.C). (+1 / 13)

Looks like pacing duties for Wammetsberger this past weekend.


11. Rowan Doherty, Simon Fraser (+1 / 12)

Doherty ran at his conference meet where he saw himself become a double champion. He helped Simon Fraser win the DMR in a time of 9:58.18. The next day, Doherty was able to take home the 3000 meter title in a time of 8:31.30. He was a two second winner over that of his teammate Pierre-Louis Detourbe. The ability to double in a championship setting and produce quality times is a big plus in our book.


10. Benoit Campion, American International (+1 / 11)

Campion also competed at his conference meet this past weekend. He tripled up and ran the DMR, 4x800 (an interesting event for indoors), and the mile. He helped both relays to victory as the DMR ran 10:05.00 and the 4x800 ran 7:49.97. He was 2nd in the mile behind that of Lucas Taxter and ran 4:10.93. Overall, he was very solid and (maybe more importantly) consistent.


9. Taylor Stack (Western Colorado) (+1 / 10)

Stack continues his strong 2018-2019 season. He ran 8:40.50 to win the Western Colorado Alumni Open. Due to the altitude, his time converts down to 8:08.80 and he now sits comfortably in the #7 spot in the NCAA rankings. He has times in both the 3000 and 5000 and should be competitive in both of those (loaded) events come March.

8. Josh Hoskinson, Colorado Mines (+1 / 9)

It was simply pacing duties for Hoskinson this past weekend as he helped his teammates get a few national times.


7. Dennis Mbuta, Grand Valley State (+1 / 8)

Idle.


6. Brett Meyer, Fort Hays State (+1 / 7)

Meyer made his way over to Nebraska for the appropriately named Nebraska Tune-Up. He ran the 800 and the 4x400. In the 800 he was able to take home the victory in 1:52.38. The time is just a bit slower than what he ran earlier in the year. Still, the consistency is a nice aspect to see. He’ll be heading into Nationals taking aim at the mile. Their 4x400 team also finished 4th and ran 3:21.58.


5. Austin Anaya, Adams State (+1 / 6)

Idle.


4. Elias Gedyon, Adams State (+1 / 5)
