In fact, the top-5 teams have combined to win the past 11 indoor crowns.

Defending champion Iowa Central CC almost doubled-up its nearest pursuer in Week 1 as Dee Brown’s squad is aiming to win its fourth national crown in the past five years and looks to be in a strong position to do so. The Tritons claim a pair of national leaders in Courtney Lindsey (60 meters) and Kelvin Bungei (5000), while they also own three of the nation’s top-5 in four events (1000, mile, 5000 and weight throw).

Barton (Kan.) CC is No. 2 in Week 1 rankings. The Cougars, who were runners-up the last two years, have a trio of national leaders in reigning National Athlete of the Week Davonte Burnett (200), Philip Lemonious (60 hurdles) and Shakwon Coke (triple jump).

At No. 3 is South Plains, the last team other than Iowa Central to win a national title indoors. The Texans lead the nation in four events – the 400 and 600 by Moitalel Mpoke, the high jump with Romaine Beckford and the 4×400 relay.

New Mexico JC is No. 4 and have national leader Andrei Romanov, whose best of 20.90m (68-7) in the weight throw is an all-time NJCAA best.

Rounding out the top-5 this week is Monroe-New Rochelle (N.Y.). The Mustangs have a pair of athletes in the No. 2 position – Phelani Maduwa (800) and Lloyd McCurdy (triple jump).

The rest of the top-10: No. 6 Coffeyville (Kan.) CC, No. 7 Cloud County (Kan.) CC, No. 8 Vincennes (Ind.), No. 9 Mesa (Ariz.) CC and No. 10 Iowa Western CC.
