NEW ORLEANS – For the third-straight week of the outdoor track & field season, we’ve seen a new leader atop the NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings.

Pittsburg State vaulted seven spots to the top of the newest batch of rankings, released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The Gorillas stayed at home this past weekend at its Wendy’s/PSU Invitational, putting together a slew of solid marks in order to achieve its first-ever No. 1 ranking for the outdoor season.

A total of 10 NCAA Division II top-10 Descending Order List marks were hit at the meet by the Gorillas, including an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark in the shot put by Bo Farrow (18.67m/61-3). Farrow also posted the second-best discus throw in the nation this year at 55.17m (181-0).

Colorado Mines also made a significant push into the top-five, jumping six spots to third for its highest outdoor ranking in program history. The Orediggers were all over the map over the weekend, competing at the 2018 Tom Benich Invitational, the Stanford Invitational and the San Francisco State Distance Carnival. It didn’t matter where the team was, though, as seven top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List marks were posted across the three meets. Josh Hoskinson led the way for the Orediggers, running the nation’s best 5000 time at the Stanford Invitational at 14:05.42.

Two other teams jumped into the top-10 after sitting outside during the first two weeks of rankings.

CSU-Pueblo found itself in the top-10 for the first time in program history at seventh thanks to Thomas Staines’ performance in the 800 at the CSU-Pueblo Spank Blasing Invite. The sophomore hit an NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Mark at 1:48.54 (converted to 1:47.96 for altitude), a time that leads NCAA Division II.

Joining CSU-Pueblo in moving into the top-10 was Texas A&M-Commerce, which moved up three spots to eighth. The Lions posted three NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Marks at the Home Depot Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays. Florian Obst notched 7,681 points in the decathlon and DeVontae Steele recorded a triple jump mark of 15.67m (51-5). The Lions’ 4×400 relay squad also ran a 3:07.91.

Other than the four aforementioned teams and Tiffin – who remained in ninth – the rest of the top-10 didn’t have as positive of a week.

Texas A&M-Kingsville slipped one spot to second despite NCAA Division II-leading performances from Richard Cervantes (shot put and discus), Javier Lopez (110 hurdles) and Charles Greaves (triple jump) at the Texas Relays. All three posted NCAA Division II Automatic Qualifying Marks in their respective events.

Chico State, Angelo State and Saint Augustine’s all fell two spots to fourth, fifth and sixth, respectively.

Rounding out the top-10 on the week was West Texas A&M, who fell five spots to 10th.

The NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, on May 24-26.
