NEW ORLEANS – It doesn’t appear that the dust will be settling anytime soon on the women’s side of the NCAA Division II National Team Rankings, as the entire top-five went through a complete makeover one week ahead of the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships.

West Texas A&M waited until the last possible moment to make its first push into the top spot of the rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Sunday.

Factoring in only entrants into the national championship meet, the Lady Buffs jumped a spot to first with 10 entries. The squad will be led by Fatim Affessi, who leads the NCAA Division II Descending Order List in the long jump and triple jump, and Rellie Kaputin, who sits second in the long jump and third in the triple jump.

Despite leading the pack with 18 entries, Grand Valley State fell to second after sitting first for weeks one through six on the season. The Lakers seven distance entrants are the most of any NCAA Division II team this year and features four 5000 participants. GVSU’s 4×400 relay also sits second on the Descending Order List this season.

Pittsburg State and Western State each jumped a spot in the rankings to third and fourth, respectively.

The Gorillas are tied with West Texas A&M for the second-most entries in the meet with 10. Courtney Nelson (60 meters) and Jena Black (shot put) should score big for the squad, as both sit second on the Descending Order List in their respective events.

Western State’s fourth-place ranking is tied for the program’s best mark this season – as well as in history – as the Mountaineers feature eight entries into the meet. Alicja and Aneta Konieczek sit 1-2 in the 3000 on this year’s Descending Order List, and Alicja also sits fourth in the mile.

Rounding out the top-five of the rankings is the defending champion Adams State Grizzlies. With nine entries into the meet, the Grizzlies have a legitimate chance at repeating, especially with the likes of Jenna Thurman and Roisin Flanagan in the mile.

Angelo State, San Francisco State and Lincoln (Mo.) remained idle in the rankings at sixth, seventh and eighth, respectively. Azusa Pacific (ninth) and Walsh (10th) both returned to the top-10 after falling out in recent weeks.
