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

NEW ORLEANS – Musical chairs seems to be the name of the game in the world of NCAA Division II women’s outdoor track & field, as all but two spots in the top-10 of the newest week of National Team Rankings underwent movement from a week ago, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.

The top spot in the rankings changed hands for the sixth-consecutive week, as West Texas A&M returned to the top, dethroning Grand Valley State. Outside of the Lady Buffs, three other teams in the top-10 made positive movement in the rankings.

Despite taking the weekend off ahead of the LSC Outdoor Championships, West Texas A&M saw enough change across the landscape of the NCAA Division II outdoor track & field Descending Order List to allow them to leap over GVSU, who also sat idle this past weekend. The two teams have indirectly battled one another for the top spot in the rankings over the past few weeks.

Azusa Pacific also moved towards the top of the rankings, jumping up to third after its outing at the PacWest Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Jacky Chasteler recorded the fourth-best hammer throw mark in NCAA Division II this season, hitting an Automatic Qualifying Mark at 60.88m (199-9), while Olivia Nash added the ninth-best triple jump mark of 12.38m (40-7½). The third-place ranking for the Cougars is the highest since the fourth-week of 2015, when it came in at second.

Adams State stayed put in fourth on the week, giving the top-10 some sort of consistency. Dianna Johnson ran a wind-assisted 11.20 in the 100 (converted to 11.23 for altitude), tops in NCAA Division II this year.   

Rounding out the top-five on the week was Angelo State, which took a two-spot tumble to fifth.

Top-16 Summary
Full Reports: By Team | By Event

Outside of the top-five, there were two teams that made a nice push to get closer to the cream of the crop in Lincoln (Mo.) and New Mexico Highlands.

The Blue Tigers moved up three spots to sixth after its strong showing at the prestigious Drake Relays. The 4×100 relay squad ran a 45.80, good for second in NCAA Division II this season, while an individual Blue Tiger put on a show of her own. Diana Cauldwell notched an Automatic Qualifying Mark in the triple jump at 12.76m (41-10½), placing her third on the NCAA Division II Descending Order List.

New Mexico Highlands cracked the top-10 for the first time since coming in at second during the final week of the 2015 season. The Cowgirls jumped 13 spots to seventh after posting seven top-10 NCAA Division II Descending Order List marks at the RMAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The team was led by Annie Topal, who hit an Automatic Qualifying mark with the second-best triple jump in NCAA Division II this year at 12.82m (42-0¾).  

Pittsburg State remained in 10th on the week, but two teams in San Francisco State (eighth) and Saint Augustine’s (ninth) each slipped one spot in the rankings.

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