Rowan-Gloucester CC helped its cause, but not enough to stay at No. 3. The now fourth-ranked Roadrunners received two national-leading marks in the guise of Jacion Hammond in the 400 (51.77) as well as the 4×400 relay at 3:39.95.
St. Charles CC held steady at No. 5 for the second week in a row. The Cougars tallied nine new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend, including chart-toppers from Joshua Butters in the 400H (1:13.02) and the 4×800 relay (9:08.86).
