NOTE: Only USTFCCCA member programs are eligible for rankings. Please check your membership status HERE.

NEW ORLEANS – Despite a busy week on the NCAA Division II track & field circuit, things were relatively quiet on the rankings front, as the top-four men’s teams in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Team Rankings remained the same from a week ago.

Colorado Mines, Tiffin, Ashland and Grand Valley State all held down their respective spots from a week ago in the new rankings that were announced on Tuesday. The lone shake-up in the top-five came from Pittsburg State, who moved into fifth after placing eighth last week.

Even though the rankings were relatively dormant, the action on the track was hot.

Colorado Mines got 10 new marks in the top-30 of the Descending Order List on the season at the DII Invite & Multi. A pair of pole vaulters in Connor McLean and Jake Pinkston sit second and third, respectively, on the Descending Order List after their big weekend. Luke Julian also ran the second-best mile time in NCAA Division II this season at 4:15.84.

Tiffin peppered the top-10 of the Descending Order List after its outing at the Saginaw Valley Invite and the University of Findlay Invite. Three athletes sit in sixth in their respective events on the Descending Order List after this past weekend: Nikolas Curtiss (shot put), Jonte Baker (60 meters) and Jalon Monigan (triple jump).

Two Ashland athletes now pace their respective events on the Descending Order List after dominating the University of Findlay Invite. Myles Pringle continued to destroy the 200, as he ran a 46.42, while Alex Hill’s weight throw mark of 21.42m (70-3½) sits atop the Descending Order List.

GVSU saw six athletes hit top-30 marks on the Descending Order List at the Mike Lints Alumni Open.

Pittsburg State’s rise to fifth can be attributed to Bo Farrow, NaRon Rollins and Justice Burks, among others. Farrow sits in fifth on the shot put Descending Order List, while Rollins (200 meters) and Burks (60 hurdles) are both sixth on list.

Findlay, Texas A&M-Commerce, CSU-Pueblo, Missouri Southern and Adams State rounded out the top-10 in spots six through 10, respectively.

Texas A&M-Commerce and CSU-Pueblo both shot into the top-10 after coming in at 12th and 14th, respectively, a week ago. Dedrian Windham and Jude Christine posted respective times of 47.63 and 47.73 in the 400 to leap into the top-five of the Descending Order list for the Lions, while CSU-Pueblo’s distance medley relay squad posted the second-best time in NCAA Division II this year at 9:46.78 (track and altitude converted).  

Outside of the top-10, Western Oregon made a significant splash, moving up 52 spots to 11th. David Ribich ran the fourth-fastest all-condition mile time in NCAA Division II history at 3:58.88.

Also making a meteoric rise was Adelphi, who shot up to 24th from 88th thanks to Felipe Custodio in the 400 and 200 and Michael Grady in the 800. Both athletes sit in the top-10 of the Descending Order List in their respective events.

The rankings for both Western Oregon and Adelphi are program bests.
