Ashland University's men's outdoor track and field team has moved down one spot to No. 3 in the latest edition of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) rankings, released on Tuesday (April 11) afternoon.

The Eagle men have 149.68 computer points, trailing No. 1 Chico State (181.95) and No. 2 Angelo State (153.47).

In the first three weekends of outdoor competition, Ashland's men have racked up three automatic and 14 provisional marks for 2017 NCAA Division II nationals, May 25-27 in Bradenton, Fla. Included in that count are the top three hammer throwers in the country – junior Daniel Roberts No. 1 (67.97 meters/223-feet-0), senior Jordan Crayon No. 2 (67.09 meters/220-feet-1) and senior Bryn Campbell No. 3 (63.91 meters/209-feet-8).

In addition, sophomore Myles Pringle has the best 400-meter dash time in the country (45.99 seconds), and junior Elijah Talk is No. 2 in the nation in the shot put (18.31 meters/60-feet-1).

This is the 63rd time Ashland's men have been ranked outdoors since the start of the 2010 season.

Ashland's men and women will go to the University of Akron on Friday (April 14) and Saturday (April 15) to compete in the Northeast Ohio Quad.
