2018 NCAA DII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – After a few weeks of outdoor track & field action, the San Francisco State women lead the first batch of NCAA Division II Women’s Outdoor National Team Rankings, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The highest outdoor ranking in program history for the Gators comes on the heels of a strong showing at the Sacramento State Hornet Invitational, where the squad put up 10 top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List marks.

Destiny Mack-Talalemotu is responsible for three of the aforementioned six marks. The junior owns the top NCAA Division II mark in the shot put (14.79m/48-6¼) and the discus (50.32m/165-1) while also notching the fourth-best hammer throw in the nation. Courtney Massengale joined Mack-Talalemotu with the second-best discus throw in the nation at the same meet.

Right behind the Gators in the rankings is Angelo State, which was ranked in the top-five all of last season. Three Rams athletes hold four top marks in their respective events on the NCAA Division II Descending Order List. Katilin Lumpkins has already hit an Automatic Qualifying Mark in the high jump at 1.77m (5-9¾), while Trenadey Scott (triple jump) and Kami Norton (long jump and heptathlon) are tops in their events.

Fresno Pacific comes in at third for the program’s highest outdoor ranking. Brie Courseault’s 200 time of 24.31 sits atop the NCAA Division II Descending Order List, while two Sunbird relay squads are in the top-10 of the 4×100 and 4×400.

Chico State has competed in three meets already this year. The Wildcats come in at fourth in the rankings, thanks in part to Alex Burkhart’s NCAA Division II-leading steeplechase time of 10:30.96.

Rounding out the top-five is Academy of Art, which has seven top-10 Descending Order List marks. The fifth-place ranking for the Knights is the highest since ranking fifth during the third week of the 2014 outdoor campaign.
