NEW ORLEANSAdams State continued to make its astounding climb towards the top of the NCAA Division II Men’s Computer Team Rankings, released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday, as the Grizzlies found themselves in 3rd for the first time since the 2015 campaign.

Chico State held onto the top spot for the 5th-straight week, while Ashland crept back into 2nd place after slipping to 3rd a week ago. Tiffin held things down at 4th once again, while Saint Augustine’s jumped to 5th for its highest ranking this year.

But no team in the top-5 has had as meteoric of a rise as Adams State. Coming in at 52nd during the 2nd week of rankings, the Grizzlies have since moved from 8th to 5th to 3rd.

This week, the program’s leap can be attributed to a pair of distance runners who shined bright at the Mt. SAC Relays. Sydney Gidabuday and Kale Adams each recorded NCAA Division II leading marks in their races over the weekend. Gidabuday posted a time of 13:39.94 in the 5000 meters, placing 4th behind 3 NCAA Division I athletes. Adams’ time of 8:49.70 in the steeplechase was good enough for an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying mark.

Ashland returned to the spot it held for all but one week so far this year after a slew of strong performances at the Akron-Northeast Ohio Quad meet. Bryn Campbell led the individuals with a hammer throw mark of 65.38m (214-6) that ranks 3rd in the nation (behind his two teammates, Daniel Roberts and Jordan Crayon). Additionally, the Eagles 4×100 relay team put together the 11th-best time on the season at 40.71.

Saint Augustine’s moved up 2 spots after 3 athletes recorded top-6 marks in their respective events in NCAA Division II this year at the Aggie Invitational over the weekend. Omar Johnson and Khari Herbert Jr. ran times of 46.82 (2nd) and 46.87 (3rd) in the 400 meters, respectively, to earn top-5 marks, while Jumonne Exeter’s 15.47m (50-9¼) triple jump leap sits 6th in the nation.
