British Columbia remains at No. 1 after claiming the top spot last week. The Thunderbirds have 12 top-10 marks, leading the nation in two events. Tyler Dozzi (5000) and Rowan Hamilton (hammer) continue to hold the No. 1 spot in their respective event. British Columbia also has four athletes ranked in the 5000-meter race walk led by Tyler Wilson with the No. 2 time of 21:35.96.

Southeastern (Fla.) held steady at No. 2 in Week 3. Joseph Taylor continues to show his dominance for the Fire, taking over the national lead in the 100 after running a 10.36 at the South Florida Invitational this past weekend. That wasn’t all for Taylor, he also recorded the No. 2 200 (20.98), No. 8 long jump (7.18m/23-6¾) and anchored Southeastern to the No. 2 4×100 relay time (40.59). Davonte Vanterpool ran the No. 2 110H (14.12) at the South Florida Invitational as well. The Fire have a total of 13 top-10 marks.

The Master’s (Calif.) comes in at No. 3 for the second week in a row, making the top-3 remain the same. The Mustangs have 10 top-10 efforts and recorded three of the 10 this past weekend at the Pomona-Pitzer Invite. Caleb Poulot cleared 4.90m (16-¾) in the pole vault to put him into a tie for the national lead. Davis Boggess ran the No. 3 1500 (3:51.54) and Anthony Ghiorso ran the No. 10 800 (1:53.07). In addition to Poulot, Wesley Methum leads the nation in the 10,000.

Saint Mary (Kan.) moved up two spots to No. 4, making their debut into the top-5 in Week 3. The Spires have seven top-10 marks with four of them coming from distance events. Luke Skinner has the top mark with the No. 2 5000 (14:10.30). Saint Mary picked up two top-10 efforts over the week in the 4×400 (No. 3, 3:14.07) and Jonathan Bowen’s No. 10 5000 (14:28.24). Bowen has a pair of top-10 marks as he’s also ranked fourth-nationally in the 10,000 (30:12.64).

Keiser (Fla) rounds out the top-5, staying put at No. 5 for Week 3. The Seahawks have nine top-10 efforts, recording two new marks last weekend at the South Florida Invitational. Melvin Johnson ran the No. 5 100 (10.44) in a field featuring NCAA DI and DII programs, along with other NAIA teams. The 4×400 relay team ran the No. 8 time (3:17.72). Cole Wilson still holds the team’s highest ranking at No. 3 in the decathlon. Vindero Lightfoot leads the Seahawks with the most individual marks with two top-10 marks in the 200 and 400 and he’s also part of the nationally-ranked 4×100 and 4×400 squads.

Here are the remaining top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 William Carey (Miss.), No. 7 Indiana Tech, No. 8 Dillard (La.), No. 9 Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) and No. 10 Montreat (N.C.).
