NEW ORLEANS –A good way of keeping your top spot in the rankings is to go out and put together some dominate performances.

The Grand Valley State women did just that this past weekend at the GVSU Big Meet, allowing them to remain in first for the fourth-consecutive week in the newest batch of NCAA Division II National Team Rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The Lakers’ 4×400 relay team set the top mark in all of NCAA Division II this season with a time of 3:42.38 for the only Automatic Qualifying Mark in the event on the season thus far. That time is also good for 13th in NCAA Division II history. GVSU’s distance medley relay team also hit a top-10 Descending Order List mark at 11:40.03, while Chant’e Roberts ran the fourth-best 400 time in all of NCAA Division II this season at 55.20.

Outside of the Lakers’ continued dominance in the rankings, there were some shakeups, including some in the top-five.

West Texas A&M flip-flopped with Adams State in the rankings, with the Aggies moving up to second and the Grizzlies falling to third. The Aggies benefitted from a strong outing at the Don Kirby Elite, where the team hit three top-10 Descending Order List marks, including Fatim Affessi’s triple jump mark of 12.79m (41-11½) that is good for second in the nation.

The biggest mover on the week was Western State, which jumped from 18th to fifth for the program’s highest ranking ever. The Mountaineers were aided by a 1-2 punch of Alicja and Aneta Konieczek in the 3000 at the Husky Classic. The sisters posted the first and second-best times on the Descending Order List with finishes of 9:22.52 and 9:27.78, respectively. Additionally, Sophie Seward notched the seventh-fastest 5000 time in NCAA Division II this year at 16:43.73.
