NEW ORLEANS – A three-spot rise by Tiffin in the NCAA Division II Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings caused a domino effect on the rest of the top-five in the newest batch of rankings released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The Dragons jumped up to second from fifth, essentially knocking Texas A&M-Kingsville, Texas A&M-Commerce and Adams State each down one spot to third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

Tiffin had a strong showing at the GLIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships, where it finished second. Individually, the Dragons were out in full force, as a total of five top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List marks were hit to give the team its boost to second place. Mackenzi Rickman’s 13.87 in the 110 hurdles and Nikolas Curtiss’ shot put mark of 18.47m (60-7¼) were both Automatic Qualifying Marks.

Pittsburg State remained in first on the week after capturing the MIAA title. The Gorillas were led by Levi Wyrick’s 63.25m (207-6) in the javelin and Creigton Sanders’ 67.39m (221-1) in the javelin. Both marks sit sixth on the NCAA Division II Descending Order List.

Spots six through 10 in the rankings saw a significant upheaval, as well.

While Angelo State remained in sixth place after defeating both Texas A&M-Kingsville and Texas A&M-Commerce for the Lone Star Outdoor Championships, three other teams made solid pushes towards the top of the rankings on the week.

The biggest jump in the rankings belonged to Lincoln (Mo.) which saw itself move up 55 spots to eighth for its highest ranking of the season. The Blue Tigers tied for third at the MIAA Outdoor Championships, but posted seven top-10 Descending Order List marks at the competition.

CSU-Pueblo made a three-spot leap from 10th to seventh after Thomas Staines notched an Automatic Qualifying Mark in the 400 at the Air Force Twilight Open. The stellar sophomore ran a 45.98 (converted to 46.19 for altitude).

Also making its top-10 season-debut was Central Missouri, which moved up three spots to 10th. The Mules were runners-up at the MIAA Outdoor Championships where it saw Nathan Liby post a 64.34m (211-1) in the hammer throw and Nathan Cummings notch a 18.27m (59-11¼) in the shot put.

Rounding out the top-10 on the week was Colorado Mines, which slipped from eighth to ninth.
