NEW ORLEANS – Minor changes peppered the top-10 of the NCAA Division II Men’s National Team Rankings this week with all but three teams seeing some movement, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

Only one team in the top-five moved in the right direction on the week. Texas A&M-Commerce climbed one spot to third after the team competed at the East Texas Invitational. Florian Obst led a charge of Lions at the meet where he notched the 16th-best 110 hurdle time in NCAA Division II this season at 14.33, in addition to posting a 7.36m (24-1¾) in the long jump, good for 12th on the Descending Order List.

Two other squads joined Texas A&M-Commerce in moving up within the top-10 in Tiffin and Adams State.

The Dragons moved up six spots to sixth one week after falling out of the top-10. Tiffin’s Mackenzi Rickman ran a 14.11 in the 110 hurdles at the Walsh Cavaliers Invitational, putting him in sixth on the Descending Order List. The Dragons’ 4×100 relay team also recorded the second-fastest time in NCAA Division II this season at 40.46.

Adams State moved up one spot to eighth after making its top-10 season debut a week ago. The Grizzlies’ Jonathan Millar’s mark of 18.12m (59-5½) at the Western/GHS Combined Invitational was good for fourth in NCAA Division II so far this season.

Three teams in the top-five stayed put from a week ago. Pittsburg State, Texas A&M-Kingsville and Colorado Mines remained in first, second and fifth, respectively, in this week’s rankings.

The Gorillas held down the top spot in the rankings for the third-straight week thanks to the performance by Levi Wyrick at the 10th Annual David Suenram Gorilla Classic. Wyrick posted a hammer throw mark of 62.07m (203-8) that put him sixth on the NCAA Division II Descending Order List.

Rounding out the top-five on the week was Angelo State, who was bumped from third to fourth by Texas A&M-Commerce.

Chico State (seventh), CSU-Pueblo (ninth) and Saint Augustine’s (10th) all fell in the rankings, but remained in the top-10.

Outside of the top-10, Minnesota State and Saginaw Valley State saw the biggest jumps in the rankings on the week.

Minnesota State jumped 31 spots to 21st after its 4×100 relay team posted the third-best time in NCAA Division II this past week at the Musco Twilight, running a 40.50. Sydne Davis also hit the eighth-fastest 400 hurdle time in NCAA Division II this year at 52.50.

Saginaw Valley State found itself inside the top-25 for the first time in program history after Andrew Mudd (7118) and Sam Black (6746) put themselves in fourth and 11th, respectively, on the Descending Order List in the decathlon after their outing at the Cerritos Invitational and Combined Events. Tom Goforth also posted the eighth-best 10,000 time in the nation at the Bison Outdoor Classic at 29:58.48.

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