For the seventh week in a row, Arkansas is the top team in the nation which sets a new program record for time spent in the No. 1 spot during a single-season. The Razorbacks can tie their overall program record of eight consecutive weeks (achieved between the 2015 and 2016 seasons) in the top spot with the final TFRI next week.

Arkansas captured its fifth consecutive and ninth SEC Indoor title over the weekend. Individual conference title winners included Kelsey Herman (pentathlon), Taylor Werner (3000 and 5000), Lexi Jacobus (pole vault), Lauren Gregory (mile), Payton Chadwick (60H) and the Razorbacks’ DMR team.

Slotting in behind them at No. 2 was Southern California after it too won its conference championships.

The Trojans captured their fifth MPSF team title in the past six years. Conference titles went to Dior Hall (200), Lanae-Tava Thomas (long jump), Angie Annelus (60), Kyra Constantine (400), Chanel Brissett (60H) and the units 4×400 team.

Individual conference crowns went to Kortnei Johnson (60) and Abby O’Donoghue (high jump) as the team registered 58 points.

Advancing three spots to move into the top-5 was No. 4 Florida after a fourth-place finish at the SEC Championships.
