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

NEW ORLEANS – A slow week in the world of NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Track & Field resulted in relatively unchanged National Team Rankings, as the top-six teams held their ground from a week ago, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday..

However, the bottom part of the top-10, as well as a few spots on the outskirts of the top-10, did undergo a significant alteration, as spots seven through 13 shuffled after a week of action.

West Texas A&M saw the biggest jump of all teams on the week, as the Buffs moved up nine spots to seventh in the rankings. The Buffs returned to the top-10 for the first time since Week 3, despite taking the week off ahead of the LSC Outdoor Championships.

Colorado Mines also rejoined the top-10 with a three-spot jump to eighth after a solid weekend at the RMAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Jake Pinkston punched his ticket to the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships with an Automatic Qualifying Mark in the pole vault, clearing 5.28m (17-3¾). Patrick Weaver also added the seventh-best 400 time in NCAA Division II this season at 1:49.94 (converted to 1:49.13 for altitude).

Ashland jumped one spot in the rankings to ninth thanks to the outings from Myles Pringle and Alex Hill at the Ashland Alumni Open. Pringle recorded the fifth-best high jump mark in NCAA Division II this season at 2.14m (7-0¼), while Hill added the sixth-best discus throw in NCAA Division II on the year at 54.49m (178-9).

Pittsburg State, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Texas A&M-Commerce, Adams State and Tiffin sat first through fifth, respectively, for the second-consecutive week.

The Gorillas’ lone top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List mark from this past weekend belonged to Kai Miller, who recorded the eighth-best pole vault mark on the season at 5.13m (16-10). However, that was enough for Pittsburg State to remain in first for the fourth time in the last five rankings.

Texas A&M-Commerce also had an athlete notch a top-10 Descending Order List mark in Sir Morgan Loudd. The freshman posted the ninth-best long jump in NCAA Division II this season at 7.45m (24-5½) during the ACU Oliver Jackson Twilight.

The other three teams in the top-five did not record a top-10 Descending Order List mark from this past weekend.

Rounding out the top-10 was Angelo State – which remained in sixth place – and CSU-Pueblo, which fell one spot to 10th.  

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