NEW ORLEANS — It looks like we have a stranglehold on the top-2 spots in the NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Team Rankings, as released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

For the 3rd-straight week, Ashland and Chico State sit 1st and 2nd, respectively, in the rankings. It may be difficult to sneak ahead of either of them in just 2 weekends when the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field National Championships take place in Bradenton, Florida.

Ashland saw two top-10 descending order list performances in the discus throw from Jason Zahn and Alex Hill. Zahn posted the 8th-best throw on the season at the BW Harrison Dillard Twilight at 55.01m (180-6), while Hill’s throw of 54.53m (178-11) at the GVSU 2nd to Last Chance Meet is good for 9th.

While Chico State did not have any top-10 descending order list performances at the West Coast Last Chance Open, Connor Fisher did improve on a provisional mark in the steeplechase, posting the 20th-best time in the country this year at 9:01.63.

Following those two teams in the rankings once again were Lincoln (Mo.) (3rd) and Adams State (4th).

The 1st movement in the rankings this week came at 5th, where Saint Augustine’s reclaimed its spot in the top-5 after falling to 6th a week ago. The Falcons were able to accomplish this after Omar Johnson ran the 3rd-best 400 meter time on the year at 46.38 at the Aggie Last Chance, hitting an automatic qualifying mark in the process. Additionally, the Falcons’ 4×100 relay team ran a 40.52, good for 10th on the descending order list.

Tiffin saw a rise in the rankings to 6th, followed by Shorter – who dropped 2 spots – Missouri Southern, Grand Valley State and Texas A&M-Commerce.
