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.

Tom Goforth also posted the eighth-best 10,000 time in the nation at the Bison Outdoor Classic at 29:58.48.
