LSU and Texas A&M saw the most significant jumps in the rankings, both moving up three spots to second and third, respectively.

Competing at the Miami Hurricane Collegiate Invitational, the Tigers saw Ersula Farrow post the third-best 800 time in the nation this year at 2:03.66, while the squad’s 4×400 relay team ran the ninth-best time on the NCAA Division I Descending Order List at 3:33.91.

Texas A&M watched Jazmine Fray hit the nation’s top time in the 800 this year at 2:01.18 at the Rafer Johnson & Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational. The Aggies’ Lajarvia Brown also recorded the second-best triple jump mark in NCAA Division I this year at 13.58m (44-6¾).

Kentucky joined its SEC counterparts in the top-five with a two-spot jump to fifth. Freshman phenom Sydney McLaughlin ran a wind-aided 11.07 in the 100 at the Tennessee Relays, good for seventh on the Descending Order List this year.

Arkansas did just enough at the John McDonnell Invitational to hold onto first place for the fourth-consecutive week. Oregon rounded out the top-five with a two-spot drop to fourth.
