The Falcons took advantage of the Mount Olive Final Qualifier to put a few of its athletes in a better shot to advance to the outdoor championships. Magaly Tshipopo hit the eighth-best triple jump mark in NCAA Division II this year with a mark of 12.46m (40-10½) while Ade Hunter’s 400 time of 54.60 sits ninth on the Descending Order List.

The fourth-place ranking for the Falcons is the highest the program has been since coming in at third during the final week of the 2016 season.

Lincoln (Mo.), Pittsburg State and West Texas A&M held onto the top-three spots in the rankings once again.  Of those three schools, only Pittsburg State’s Jena Black hit an NCAA Division II top-10 Descending Order List mark this past weekend, notching an Automatic Qualifying Mark in the shot put with a throw of 16.11m (52-10¼) at the Missouri Southern Twilight Qualifier.

Adams State rounded out the top-five in its familiar spot of fifth. Kandace Thomas ran a 23.73 (converted to 23.80 for altitude) in the 200 at the West Texas A&M Last Chance meet, putting her in sixth on the Descending Order List this year.
