2018 NCAA DII Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 2

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

NEW ORLEANS –The top of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division II Men’s Team Rankings were pretty dormant from last week. The same could not be said for the women’s rankings.

Grand Valley State held onto the top-spot of the rankings, announced on Tuesday, but the next six spots all saw major shuffling, while all but one spot in the top-25 saw some sort of movement.

GVUS managed to fend off any competitors for the top ranking thanks in large part to 13 top-30 Descending Order List marks hit at its home meet this past weekend. The Lakers were led by Allie Ludge in the 3000, as the sophomore ran the second-best time in NCAA Division II this year at 4:45.50.

Other than the Lakers and UC-Colorado Springs, who remained in eighth place on the week, the remainder of the rankings went through a mass facelift.

Pittsburg State moved up to second from fourth, while Simon Fraser (15th to third), San Francisco State (fifth to fourth) and Angelo State (20th to 5th) rounded out the top-five on the week.

The Gorillas’ Asia Anderson, Emilee Iverson ad Courtney Nelson all notched top-10 Descending Order List marks over the weekend to move Pittsburg State up in the rankings after falling from first to fourth a week ago.

Simon Fraser tied its best ranking in program history after its distance medley relay team’s time of 11:36.85 moved them to second on the Descending Order List. Reta Dobie (3000 meters) and Julia Howley (mile) also posted times that moved them to fourth and fifth, respectively, on the Descending Order List in their events.

Angelo State’s Kaitlin Lumpkins notched the top high jump mark in NCAA Division II this season last weekend at 1.80m (5-10¾), while four other marks by the team from its performance over the weekend sit in the top-20 of the Descending Order List.

West Texas A&M also moved up to the outskirts of the top-five, coming in at sixth after an 11-spot jump. Walsh was right behind them in seventh, while Adams State and New Mexico Highlands both fell in the rankings to ninth and 10th, respectively.

Three teams outside of the top-10 made major jumps in the rankings thanks to strong outings this past week. Hillsdale (27th to 12th), Azusa Pacific (33rd to 13th) and Millersville (42nd to 23rd) all made up ground in the top-25.

Hillsdale benefitted from Hannah McIntyre’s 16:23.65 time in the 5000 that saw her finish just outside of the top-10 of the NCAA Division II All-Time Best list. The mark does sit atop the Descending Order List this season, though.

Eileen Stressling was dominate for Azusa Pacific over the weekend, as she notched the third-best 3000 time (9:46.47) and the fourth-fastest 5000 mark (16:37.86) on this season’s Descending Order List. Nicole Warwick also scored a 3,654 in the pentathlon, good for fifth on the list this year.

Millersville’s program-best ranking of 23rd can be attributed to Sunflower Greene’s shot put mark of 15.69m (51-5¾) and weight throw mark of 19.36m (63-6¼), both set at the Bison Open. The marks are good for third and fourth, respectively, on the Descending Order List.
