Grand Valley State remained atop the National TFRI for the third straight week following the program’s fourth consecutive GLIAC title. The Lakers have 17 top-10 nationally ranked marks to date and notched two improvements at the GLIAC Championships: Makiyah Smallwood in the 60H (No. 6, 7.98) and Caleb Futter in the mile (No. 9, 4:04.45). The Lakers continue to boast the top-ranked DMR of 9:39.38 that set an NCAA Division II all-conditions best.

The second-ranked Eagles had an impressive showing at the GLIAC Championships with seven season best efforts that rank within the top-10 on the Descending Order List. Trevor Bassitt soared for the Eagles with an improvement on his national leading marks in the 200 (20.40) and 60H (7.67), moved to No. 2 in the 60 (6.72), and was part of the fastest 4×400 of the season (3:08.23). Also earning season bests are Brent Fairbanks in the weight throw (No. 3, 21.16m/69-5¼), Travis Moore in the heptathlon (No. 6, 5327) and Channing Phillips in the 400 (No. 6, 47.65).

The Mules also earned a boost from Garrett Francis after posting a score of 5233 in the heptathlon to move to No. 8 on the Descending Order List.
