2018 NCAA DII Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – No spot in the top-25 of the NCAA Division II Women’s Computer Team Rankings was safe this week.

Massive shakeups across the nation caused movement from the top to the bottom of the rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday, including a new team in the lead.

Grand Valley State moved up two spots to first from the preseason rankings in December, which is unsurprising after their strong weekend at the GVSU Open. The Lakers posted 12 marks that sit in the top-30 of the NCAA Division II Descending Order List at the meet, including Allie Ludge’s 800 meter mark that sits seventh in the rankings on the year.

Behind GVSU in the rankings is Lincoln (Mo.), which came in at fifth in the preseason rankings. The Blue Tigers finished ninth during the indoor championships a season ago, but never sat higher than 18th in the rankings after placing fourth in the preseason poll in 2017.

San Francisco State had arguably the biggest jump on the week, as the Gators moved up 50 spots to fifth for the program’s highest ranking ever. Timarya Baynard notched the fastest 400 meter time in NCAA Division II over the weekend at 54.55, while Atiya Harvey and Baynard came in at second and fourth on the 200 meter Descending Order List. Destiny Mack-Talalemotu also posted the second-best weight throw on the year, giving the Gators a total of 12 top-30 Descending Order List marks from this past weekend.

Adams State and Pittsburg State both slipped in the rankings to third and fourth, respectively.

The rest of the top-10 was not immune to large jumps in the rankings, as Bellarmine climbed 15 spots to sixth while UC-Colorado Springs moved up 42 spots to eighth. Both programs saw a few of its athletes make some headway on the Descending Order List, including UC-Colorado Springs’ Kayla Zink, who moved to third in the 60 meters with a time of 7.54.

New Mexico Highlands (seventh) and Walsh (ninth) both moved up in the rankings on the week, while Minnesota State (10th) rounded out the top-10 with a two-spot slide.

Outside of the top-10, six teams moved up 11 or more spots, including Missouri Southern, who sits in 11th after coming in at 22nd during the preseason rankings.

Lewis (13th), Ashland (14th), McKendree (16th), Mount Olive (19th) and Central Washington (24th) all made significant jumps on the week. The rankings for the latter three programs are all program-bests.
