The third-ranked Tritons drew closer to the second-ranked Cougars thanks to the efforts of Lilia Alvarez this past weekend.

Iowa Central now has three athletes ranked among the top-10 performers this season in the event.
The fourth-ranked Lady Texans added to their haul of top-10 marks. South Plains (Texas) can now say it has 15 efforts that list among the nation’s best. One of the biggest efforts from this past weekend came from Joniar Thomas in the long jump, as she took over the national lead with her 5.93m (19-5½) leap.
Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Cowley College, No. 7 Hawkeye CC, No. 8 Indian Hills CC, No. 9 Vincennes (Ind.) and No. 10 Fort Scott CC. The RedTails made the biggest jump in the top-10 as they flew five spots since Week 2.
