NEW ORLEANS – Bedlam reigned supreme in the newest round of NCAA Division II Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings, as a new program emerged at the top of the rankings, causing a complete makeover of the top-10.

Lincoln (Mo.) jumped up five spots to claim first place for its highest ranking of the season and its first No. 1 ranking since the final week of the 2016 campaign, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday. The Blue Tigers had a strong showing at the MIAA Championships, placing second and giving the team the boost it needed to take over the rankings.

Seven top-10 Descending Order List marks were hit by the Blue Tigers at the meet, including four Automatic Qualifying Marks by Rene Medley (100 & 200), Diana Cauldwell (long jump & triple jump).

Lincoln (Mo.) wasn’t the only team that shook up the rankings, though. Pittsburg State moved up a whopping eight spots to second after winning the MIAA title with four Automatic Qualifying Marks of its own. The Gorillas were led by Kelsey Lewis who posted an 11.50 in the 100 and a 23.32 in the 200, while Haven Lander (pole vault) and Asia Anderson (long jump) also notched Automatic Qualifying Marks.

Angelo State moved up one spot to fourth after dominating the Lone Star Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The Rams Barbara Rivera posted the seventh-best javelin throw in NCAA Division II this season at the meet with a mark of 47.31m (155-2).

West Texas A&M (first to third) and Adams State (fourth to fifth) each fell in the rankings, but managed to remain in the top-five.

Saint Augustine’s is right on the cusp of the top-five after a three-spot leap to sixth. The Falcons captured the CIAA Outdoor Championships, thanks in part to Shannon Kalawan’s NCAA Division II-leading 400 time of 53.36. The sixth-place ranking for the Falcons ties a season-best.

The only other team in the top-10 that made positive movement on the week was Alaska Anchorage, who cracked the club of elite squads with a  one spot jump from 11th. The Seawolves’ Caroline Kurgat flashed her usual brilliance at the Payton Jordan Invitational as the stellar junior ran the third-fastest 5000 time in NCAA Division II history, posting an Automatic Qualifying Mark of 15:41.21. The rise in the rankings for the Seawolves stops a two-week slide in which it went from fifth to sixth to 11th.

Rounding out the top-10 was Azusa Pacific (seventh), San Francisco State (eighth) and Grand Valley State (ninth). The Cougars and Lakers slid four and seven spots, respectively, while the Gators stayed put from a week ago.

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