NEW ORLEANS – The newest batch of U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division II National Team Rankings gives a slight lead at the top of the heap to a program who hasn’t been in first place since 2015.

Texas A&M-Kingsville leapfrogged Chico State for the top spot in the rankings – announced the USTFCCCA on Tuesday – after a strong showing at the ACU Wes Kittley Invitational this past weekend.

While there, the Javelina saw Javier Lopez hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark in the 110 hurdles with a Descending Order List-leading 13.67. In addition to Lopez’ mark that tops the Descending Order List, Richard Cervantes also now leads the nation in the shot put with a mark of 18.15m (59- 6¾), set at the same meet.

Chico State slipped to second after having an off weekend.

Angelo State and Saint Augustine’s both jumped in the rankings, as the Rams sit in third after placing fourth a week ago, while the Falcons jumped four spots to fourth.

The Rams hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Marks at the ACU Wes Kittley Invitational, as Nils Fischer posted the top javelin throw in all of NCAA Division II so far this season a 71.40m (234-3). The Angelo State 4×400 relay team also ran a 3:11.43, good for third on the NCAA Division II Descending Order List.

Saint Augustine’s benefitted from a solid outing by Jumonne Exeter in the triple jump at the Weems Baskin Relays. The senior notched a mark of 15.20m (49-10½) that puts him at fourth on the Descending Order List.

Rounding out the top-five was West Texas A&M. The Buffs were out in full force at the ACU Wes Kittley Invitational, where Quinton Sansing (400) and Abraham Seaneke (long jump) posted the top marks in NCAA Division II this season in their respective events.

The rest of the top-10 featured a mix of familiar faces and new teams.

Alabama-Huntsville held its ground in sixth place for the second-consecutive week thanks to three top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order Marks hit at the Mississippi State Bulldog Relays.

Ashland also stayed put in the top-10, coming in at 10th once again.

However, Azusa Pacific and Colorado Mines made significant pushes into the top-10 after solid outings over the weekend.

Azusa Pacific moved up 22 spots to seventh after Miles Poullard and James Jones recorded the second-best marks in the high jump and shot put, respectively, in NCAA Division II this year. Chad Ponciano added the third-best decathlon mark to the Cougars’ portfolio.

Colorado Mines found itself in the top-10 for the first time since the seventh week of the 2016 season after Kevin Thompson (800), Jake Pinkston (pole vault) and Chase McLean (decathlon) all hit top-four Descending Order Marks on the weekend at the Mines Nature’s Bakery Invite.

Pittsburg State remained in the top-10, but fell from third to eighth after not competing on the week.
