NCAC OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIP POLL 

The 2022 NCAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held Thursday-Friday, May 5-6, at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio. The Oberlin Yeowomen are seeking their fourth NCAC crown, while the Wabash Little Giants are in search of their third-straight and ninth overall title. Both squads have been selected as the favorites heading into this year’s meet based on pre-championship balloting by the league coaches.

In the men's poll, defending champion Wabash collected all nine first-place votes cast for 81 total points. Denison was tabbed second earning 68 points overall, while Wittenberg took third with 63 points and DePauw placed fourth tallying 52 points. Wooster (45) was tabbed fifth, ahead of Oberlin and Ohio Wesleyan who tied for sixth with 30 points apiece. Allegheny (27) and Kenyon (9) rounded out the nine-team field.

Under the direction of 14-year head coach Clyde Morgan, the Little Giants will be led by several veterans and a contingent of talented newcomers that are primed to land atop the team standings. On the track, Wabash has a balance of runners between the sprint and distance events. Senior Ethan Pine (Greenwood, IN/Greenwood Community) is the owner of the fastest conference time in the 1,500-meter run (3:52.29) along with the fourth-best time in the 3,000-meter steeplechase (9:54.16). Senior Leo Warbington (Indianapolis, IN/Lawrence Central) is second among conference athletes in the 400-meter hurdles (56.16) and the 110-meter hurdles (15.33), while junior Giovonni Zappala (West Lafayette, IN/Harrison) (15.77) owns the fourth-quickest time and sophomore Takeshi Greiner (Crawfordsville, IN/Southmont) owns the fifth-quickest time (15.88) in the 110 hurdles event. Senior Jose Franco (Bronx, NY/Cardinal Hayes) owns the fastest time in the 200-meter dash (22.10) and the second-quickest conference mark in the 400-meter dash (49.14). The Little Giants also have the second-fastest 4x400 relay, clocking in with a season-best time of 3:21.74. In field events, senior Max Bigler (Grapevine, TX/Grapevine) holds the conference’s best mark in the high jump (2.00m), while also owning the fifth-best 400 hurdles (57.85) time. Junior Brandon English (Portage, IN/Portage) holds the second-furthest shot put distance in the NCAC (14.66m), senior Luke Bender (Zionsville, IN/Zionsville) owns the NCAC’s second-best mark in the pole vault (4.47m), junior Reis Thomas (Brownsburg, IN/Brownsburg) owns the third-best mark in the discus (47.05m) and senior Kamron Ferguson (Indianapolis, IN/Park Tudor) holds the fourth-longest triple jump mark of 13.52 meters this season.

Oberlin topped the pre-championship poll on the women's side by earning all eight first-place votes for 64 total points, while DePauw finished second overall with 53 points. Wooster was predicted to finish third with 46 points while Ohio Wesleyan was selected fourth (38) and Wittenberg was tabbed fifth (31). Allegheny (26), Denison (22) and Kenyon (8) rounded out the eight-team field.

The Yeowomen, under the direction of veteran head coach Ray Appenheimer, are in prime position to capture the league title with several athletes entering the championship meet with a top-five performance in the NCAC in either a running or field event. Oberlin has once again produced top-marks in the NCAC in the field events this season, as senior Sarah Voit (Cincinnati, OH/Mcauley HS) holds the best pole vault (3.83m) and classmate Malaika Djungu-Sungu (Arlington, TX/Arlington) owns the league-leading distance in the triple jump (12.05m) along with the second-best long jump (5.49m) mark. Djungu-Sungu also enters the championship with the fifth-fastest time in the 100-meter dash (12.81). Junior Iyanna Lewis (Washington, DC/Sidwell Friends) holds the NCAC’s top mark in the hammer throw (50.94m), while sophomore Abby Cannon (Bloomington, IN/Loomis Chaffe) owns the top mark in the discus throw (38.02m) and fourth-best mark in the hammer (46.18m). Senior Victoria Blair (Sugar Land, TX/Stephen F. Austin) (36.99m) and junior Shayla Keegan (Maplewood, NJ/Columbia) (36.81m) also own top-five discus marks this season, sitting fourth and fifth, respectively. Oberlin senior Maggie Allen (West Bridgewater, MA/West Bridgewater) holds the conference’s fourth-best javelin throw this season at 30.26 meters. Junior Chilly Wallace (Belle Mead, NJ/Montgomery High School) sits in fourth among conference athletes in the triple jump (10.59m), while senior Clare Tiedemann (New York, NY/Grace Church School) owns the third-best distance in the long jump (5.47m). On the track, Tiedemann holds the league’s third-best time in the 100-meter hurdles (9.01) and 400-meter dash (1:00.33) while ranking fourth in the 200-meter dash (26.09). Seniors Phoebe von Conta (Harvard, MA/Parker Charter) and Anna Scott (Bainbridge, WA/Bainbridge) have the NCAC’s best (4:43.28) and second-best (4:44.75) times in the 1,500-meter run this season. Von Conta also owns the fourth-fastest time in the 5,000-meter run (18:01.49), while Scott owns the fourth-best 800-meter run (2:20.74) mark. Sophomore Eliza Medearis (Alexandria, VA/TC Williams) owns the fourth-fastest time in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a season-best time of 12:00.48. Finally, the Yeowomen hold the second-fastest 4x400 time (4:07.01) headed into the conference meet.
