NEW ORLEANS — The latest USTFCCCA Division II Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings only uses current-season data, causing a "moving-week" situation where many teams were repositioned around the top 25. In the women’s rankings, jumping from No. 6, Grand Canyon is the new No. 1 team, their first women’s top ranking in school history. Grand Valley State’s women falls to No. 2, breaking a nine-week outdoor streak as the No. 1 team. GVSU had been the No. 1 women’s outdoor team since April 19, 2011. Saint Augustine’s survived the "moving week" and remain the No. 1 men’s team. Grand Canyon’s men moved up nine spots from No. 11 to No. 2.
