NOTE: Only USTFCCCA member programs are eligible for rankings. Please check your membership status HERE.

NEW ORLEANS – All but four spots in the newest NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings underwent some sort of alteration after a busy week on the outdoor circuit, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

Pittsburg State and Texas A&M-Kingsville remained in the top two spots, respectively, while CSU-Pueblo (seventh) and UC San Diego (18th) held their ground in the rankings. However, every other spot in the top-25 features a team that was elsewhere in the rankings just a week ago.

The biggest movers and shakers in the top-five were Angelo State and Texas A&M-Commerce, which moved up to third and fourth, respectively.

The Rams stayed home this past weekend, hosting the David Noble Relays, where the team posted some exquisite marks. Nils Fischer notched the seventh-best javelin throw in NCAA Division II outdoor collegiate history with a mark of 74.53m (244-6). Additionally, Angelo State got top-two Descending Order List Marks from Harry Maslen in the decathlon (7,496) and the 4×400 relay squad (3:10.22).

Texas A&M-Commerce returned to the top-five for the first time since week three of the 2017 outdoor campaign. The Lions continued its climb in the rankings, thanks to Malcolm Woods’ Automatic Qualifying Mark of 10.24 in the 100. Rashard Clark and D’Lance Sharp added top-three Descending Order List Marks in the 200 and 400, respectively.

The Gorillas of Pittsburg State showed up big at the David Noble Relays, as well. NaRon Rollins helped keep his team in first in the rankings after posting NCAA Division II-leading marks in the 100 (10.09) and 200 (20.72), both of which double as Automatic Qualifying Marks. Texas A&M-Kingsville watched Charles Greaves continue his assault on the Descending Order List, posting the top long jump mark in NCAA Division II this year at 7.90m (25-11).

Colorado Mines rounded out the top-five after slipping two spots to fifth.

Much like Angelo State and Texas A&M-Commerce, Adams State and Grand Valley State saw movement in the right direction in the rankings amongst the top-10. The Grizzlies shot up seven spots to ninth for its first top-10 ranking of the season, while the Lakers moved up once spot to 10th for its top-10 season-debut.

Adams State watched two distance runners take control of the 1500 meters at the CU Invitational in Austin Anaya and Elias Gedyon. Anaya ran a 3:46.72 (converted to 3:41.31 for altitude) was followed across the finish line by Gedyon’s 3:49.28 (converted to 3:43.81 for altitude) for the top-two marks in the event on the season.

Grand Valley State’s Jacob Battani notched a 5.10m (16-8¾) in the pole vault at the WKU Hilltopper Relays, while Justin Scavarda notched a 17.34m (56-10¾) in the shot put for top-10 Descending Order List marks.

The remainder of the top-10 was not as fortunate as the aforementioned squads. Chico State fell two spots to sixth, while Saint Augustine’s also fell two spots, landing in eighth.

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