NEW ORLEANS — What does the model of consistency look like?

How about the 6th week of the NCAA Division II Women’s Computer Team Rankings, released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

In the newest batch of rankings, the top-10 teams from a week ago did not shift at all. Last week, 2 new teams creep into the top-10, with 5 others moving around within the confines of 1st and 10th. But another mass shuffling was not to be the case this week.

Western State

West Texas A&M, Pittsburg State, Angelo State, Adams State and Western State own the top-5 spots, respectively, with Grand Valley State (6th), Texas A&M-Kingsville (7th), Chadron State (8th), Chico State (9th) and Johnson C. Smith (10th) holding down the bottom half of the top-10.

West Texas A&M was able to keep its stranglehold atop the rankings thanks in large part to a 4×100 relay team that ran the fastest time in NCAA Division II this year over the weekend. The Lady Buffs posted an altitude-converted time of 45.45 at the West Texas A&M Invitational. Fatim Affessi also notched an NCAA Division II automatic qualifying mark in the long jump, as well, leaping 6.38m (20-11¼) for the 2nd-best jump in the country this year.

Western State got a little boost in the points thanks to a pair of hammer throwers in Ashley Long and Hannah Erickson. Each recorded new season-bests, while Katie Weber’s time of 1:01.43 in the 400 hurdles also gave a little bit of steam to the Mountaineers.

GVSU was the only team in the top-10 to see a double-digit point increase from last week to now, as the Lakers picked up 11.46 points behind Chant’e Roberts and the 4×400 relay team at the GVSU Al Owens Open. Roberts ran a 54.65 in the 400 meters, good or 9th on the descending order list, while the relay squad ran a 3:43.31, placing them in 8th in NCAA Division II this year.

Top-16 Summary
Full Reports: By Team | By Event

Pittsburg State’s Emilyn Dearman (58.61 in the 400 hurdles) and the Gorilla’s 4×400 relay team (3:44.24) posted the 2nd and 8th-best marks in their respective events on the year, while Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Kaina Martinez ran the nation’s fastest time in the 200 meters (23.43, wind-aided) this past weekend. Despite this, every team in the top-10 other than West Texas A&M, Western State and GVSU lost points in the computer rankings from last week to today.

After the top-10, it was a different story. From 11th to 22nd, each team either moved up or down at least one spot in the rankings from a week ago.

The biggest movers were San Francisco State and Alaska Anchorage, who each jumped 4 spots to 13th and 18th, respectively.

Atiya Harvey scored 2 top-10 descending order list marks at the Bulldog Invitational over the weekend, running a wind-aided 11.65 in the 100 meters (7th) and a wind-aided 23.88 in the 200 meters (9th). Courtney Massengale also recorded a mark of 49.37m (162-0) in the discus throw, good for 9th in NCAA Division II this season.

Alaska Anchorage saw Danielle McCormick run a 2:07.60 in the 800 meters, placing her 4th on the descending order list this year. Additionally, Karolin Anders leapt 1.73m (5-8) in the high jump, good for 8th on the season.

Fort Hays State was the only new team to crack the top-25 this week. The Tigers have sat on the cusp of the top-25 for the last 3 weeks.

The 2017 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, from May 25-27. Check back at www.USTFCCCA.org each week throughout the season for updated rankings.
