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

NEW ORLEANS – Heading into the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships, there was some shuffling amongst the women&a;s programs in the final round of National Team Rankings, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday.

While Lincoln (Mo.) will head into Charlotte, North Carolina, as the team atop the rankings, spots two through seven were up for grabs after the rankings were calculated this week solely using entries into the championships.

The Blue Tigers actually sit tied for third in terms of total entries with 12, but three of their entrants lead the way in their respective events. Diana Cauldwell sits atop the NCAA Division II Descending Order List in the long jump, as does Rene Medley in the 200, while the Blue Tigers’ 4×100 relay team was tops in the nation. Should those three hit on their marks, the Blue Tigers could come home with its first outdoor national championship title since 2014.

West Texas A&M is hoping to repeat as outdoor champions, while also adding to its title total for this season after winning the indoor championship earlier this year. The Lady Buffs sit second in the rankings and enter the weekend with 12 entries into the national championships. Fatim Affessi is first in the triple jump in NCAA Division II in addition to sitting second in the long jump. The Lady Buffs are also tied for second with five entries into the sprints and hurdles.

Dropping to third in the rankings was Pittsburg State, which boasts 16 entries, including an NCAA Division II-leading six in the jumps. In the sprints, Kelsey Lewis ranks second in the 200 and should score significant points for the Gorillas, which hopes to bring its first women’s outdoor title back to Kansas since 2016.
