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

After a quiet week on the track and in the field, the top-23 men’s teams from a week ago and the top-25 women’s teams from a week ago held their ground in the rankings.

Finishing 2nd a year ago at the championship meet was the Iowa Central CC men, who have held down the top spot in the NJCAA Division I rankings all season long. They could dethrone 2nd-place South Plains (Texas), who has won the last 9 titles outright in addition to sharing the 2007 championship with Central Arizona.

A trio of teams from the Sunflower State should make some noise in Barton (Kan.) CC, Butler (Kan.) CC and Cloud County (Kan.) CC. Those teams sat in 3rd-5th in the rankings, respectively, once again this week.

On the women’s side, New Mexico JC commands a 65-point lead in the computer rankings ahead of 2016 national champion Iowa Central CC. Runners-up a year ago, the Thunderbirds are looking to become the 1st women’s team west of Texas to claim a title since Central Arizona did so in 2008.

South Plains (Texas), Barton (Kan.) CC and Central Arizona round out the top-5 on the women’s side.

Don’t be surprised to see a team from the bottom half of the top-10 on either side make a push for a title, or at least disrupt what has been the norm over the past few weeks.

Paradise Valley (Ariz.) CC has spent time in the top-5 on the men’s side of the rankings this season, but are currently in 6th. Central Arizona, Hinds (Miss.) CC, Western Texas and Iowa Western CC could all make a splash at Gowans Stadium on the week.

The same could be said for Iowa Western CC, Monroe (N.Y.), Western Texas, Coffeyville (Kan.) CC and Mesa (Ariz.) CC, who round out the top-10 on the women’s side of the rankings. Both Iowa Western CC and Mesa (Ariz.) CC have seen time in the top-5 on the season.
