Indiana Tech stayed at No. 1 for the third consecutive week. The Warriors currently have 29 top-10 marks with four top-ranked times. Lisa Voyles stayed No. 1 in the 800 (2:13.54), along with Loanie Cellard’s 3000-meter race walk (14:09.32), both Erica Xayarath and Kylin Nichols in high jump (1.68m/5-6) and the 4×400 (3:47.68). Indiana Tech has four athletes in the top-10 of both the long jump and the triple jump.

Concordia (Neb.) remained at No. 2 for the week, and so did the trio of Rylee Haecker (1000), Josie Puelz (pole vault) and Sarah Ragland (weight throw). The Bulldogs have 14 top-10 marks. Erin Mapson and Amira Cummings join Puelz to provide depth in pole vault, as they both have the No. 3 and No. 9 marks respectively.

Hastings (Neb.) moved up two spots in this week’s TFRI after breaking into the top-10 in several events last weekend at the Concordia Classic. The Broncos now have 10 top-10 marks. The 4×400 and 4×800 teams moved up to No. 5 (3:57.49) and No. 4 (9:35.61), respectively. Daisy Maessner also recorded the No. 7 time in the 60 (7.59) at the same meet. Lauren Tamayo continued to hold her two top-10 marks in the pentathlon (No. 2, 3497) and the 60H (No.10, 8.88).

William Carey (Miss.) dropped one spot from last week to No. 4. The Crusaders continue to have nine top-10 marks, while leading the nation in three different events. Brittany Jones remained No. 1 in both the long jump (5.95m/19-6¼) and triple jump (12.71m/41-8½). Joy Abu held steady as the nation’s leader in the 60H (8.54) with her teammate Selieci Myles following close behind at No. 2 (8.66).

St. Francis (Ill.) rounds out the top-5 after falling one spot. The Saints have 10 top-10 marks. Sabrina Baftiri added to her impressive resume with the nation’s second-best 3000 (9:57.87) last weekend at the Walter Cramer Invitational. Bafitri also leads the nation in the 5000 (17:07.13), is No. 4 in the 1000 (2:59.85) and No. 8 in the mile (5:05.01) to showcase incredible versatility.

Here are the remaining top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Doane (Neb.), No. 7 Dordt (Iowa), No. 8 Marian (Ind.), No. 9 Taylor (Ind.) and No. 10 Life (Ga.).

Mark your calendar for March 3-5, as that’s when the 2022 NAIA Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the Sanford Jackrabbit Athletic Complex in Brookings, South Dakota!
