Men's track & field up to No. 23 in USTFCCCA rankings

NEW ORLEANS – The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association revealed its latest Division III computer rankings on Wednesday and the Salisbury University men's track & field team has climbed back into the top 25, sitting at No. 23.

The Sea Gulls have 46.44 points in this week's ranking, less than a point away from No. 22 State University of Oneonta (47.12 points) and just clear of Nebraska Wesleyan University (46.02 points), at No. 24.

The rankings are based on individual standings nationally in their events. Salisbury currently boasts six performances that rank in the top 25 nationally, led by sophomore Luke Campbell's top-seeded 110-meter hurdles time of 14.05 seconds. Campbell also holds the nation's third-fastest time in the 400-meter hurdles (52.36 seconds), while junior Devon Hopkins stands 16th in the event (53.54 seconds).

Junior Dylan Burkett ranks 20th in the discus and 22nd in the shot put, while classmate Tyler Austin sits 23rd in the 100-meter dash.

Salisbury has two last chance meets on the schedule before the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships, May 22-24, in Delaware, Ohio.
