NEW ORLEANS – The NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, on May 24-26, and the latest batch of National Team Rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday, paints a nice picture of who should contend for a title this weekend.

With the ranking calculated using entries into the championships only, Pittsburg State will enter the meet sitting atop the rankings, as it looks to become the first program to capture the indoor and outdoor titles in the same year since Saint Augustine’s did so back in 2014.

The Gorillas lead the pack in terms of entries into the national championships with 18, including a whopping nine in the throws events. The Gorillas’ NaRon Rollins also enters the meet as the top 100 runner in NCAA Division II this year in addition to sitting third in the 200.

Pittsburg State will definitely have its work cut out for it.

Texas A&M-Kingsville moved up one spot in the rankings to second, thanks to having 12 entries. The Javelina have seven entries in the sprints and hurdles events, including Javier Lopez in the 110 hurdles, an event in which he led NCAA Division II this year. Richard Cervantes also led NCAA Division II this year in the discus and shot put, giving the Javelina an opportunity to score big in just a few events.

Tiffin slipped a spot to third in the rankings, but are tied for third with Grand Valley State (eighth in the rankings) and Chico State (11th in the rankings) with 13 entries. The Dragons will look for its first outdoor title with national leaders Jalon Monigan (triple jump) and James Ngandu (10,000) leading the way.
