NEW ORLEANS – Colorado Mines’ men’s indoor track and field squad still sits in first place in the newest NCAA Division II National Team Rankings, but there are a few teams knocking on the Orediggers’ door.

Tiffin and Adams State both put together nice weekends to give themselves a boost in the rankings to second and third, respectively, in the fourth week of rankings, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The Dragons got a pair of solid performances from James Ngandu and Mackenzie Rickman at the GVSU Big Meet to bring them within a few computer points of Colorado Mines in the rankings. Ngandu hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark in the 3000 with a time of 8:01.61, while Rickman’s 60 hurdle time of 7.95 is good for sixth on the Descending Order List this year.

The Grizzlies fell as low as 10th two weeks ago, but now finds itself up to third after a dominate showing at the Husky Classic. Sydney Gidabuday was masterful in a pair of races, posting the top time in NCAA Division II this year in the 5000 at 13:50.29, while also running the second-fastest 3000 time this year at 7:59.81. Both marks are NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifiers. Chandler Reid and Kale Adams also hit NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Marks in the 3000.

Colorado Mines competed at the GVSU Big Meet, but did not hit any season-best marks.

Texas A&M-Commerce held its ground in fourth place, while Grand Valley State slipped to fourth from second to round out the top-five.
