The Rams dominated its home meet this past weekend, where three Automatic Qualifying Marks were hit. Daisy Osakue set an NCAA Division II collegiate outdoor record in the discus with a throw of 59.72m (195-11) while also hitting another Automatic Qualifying Mark in the shot put with a toss of 15.74m (51-7¾). Kaitlin Lumpkins also posted the top high jump mark in NCAA Division II this year at 1.81m (5-11¼).

Pittsburg State also had a strong showing at the Angelo State David Noble Relays. The Gorillas posted eight top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List marks at the meet, including the top shot put mark in NCAA Division II by Jena Black. The toss of 15.91m (52-2½) by Black is an Automatic Qualifying Mark.

Grand Valley State moved up three spots to fourth for its first top-five ranking of the season. A pair of Laker pole vaulters in Lucy Buckholz and Ellianne Kimes tied for the second-best mark in NCAA Division II this season at the WKU Hilltopper Relays, posting identical leaps of 4.02m (13-2¼).

The lone team in the entire top-25 that remained in the same spot it held a week ago was Alaska Anchorage, which came in fifth. The Seawolves were idle this past weekend.
