British Columbia leaps all the way to No. 1 after not being ranked in Week 1. The Thunderbirds are back on the track (and in the field) after not having a full outdoor season since before COVID. UBC has a total of 20 top-10 marks and lead the nation in four different events; Jamie Hennessey (Steeple, 10:37.11), Zoe Doorenspleet (5000, 16:43.16), Olivia Lundman (5000-meter race walk, 23:12.53) and Hailey Kjaer (Javelin, 45.18m/148-3). In addition to leading the nation in both the 5000 and 5000-meter race walk, the Thunderbirds have four athletes ranked inside the top-10 in both events. The mid-distance and distance events account for 13 of their 20 top-10 marks.

William Carey (Miss.) dropped one spot to No. 2, after not competing during the week. The Crusaders have 11 top-10 marks, leading the nation in five events. Joy Abu leads WCU with the No. 1 100H and 400H in addition to the No. 2 open 400. Abu also anchored the Crusaders No. 1 4×100 relay (45.49). Sisters Brittany and Nevegant Jones lead the nation in the long jump and triple jump, respectively.

Concordia (Neb.) had a big improvement, soaring 12 spots to No. 3. The reigning NAIA Indoor and Outdoor pole vault champion Josie Puelz has the Bulldogs lone national leading mark after clearing 3.85m (12-7½) at the Central Nebraska Challenge. Concordia has eight top-10 efforts with six of the eight coming from field events. The Bulldogs have three athletes ranked in the hammer, with Morgan De Jong leading the way ranked third (52.81m/173-3).

Marian (Ind.) jumped four spots to No. 4, making their debut in the top-5. All of the Knights’ nine top-10 marks comes from field events. Jai-Lyn Norwood is the highest-ranked athlete after recording the No. 2 triple jump (12.07mw/39-7¼) over the weekend. Arianna Benjamin is ranked top-5 in three events after winning the discus (No. 4, 13.70m/44-11½) and shot put (No. 4, 44.55m/146-2) to go along with her fifth-ranked hammer (51.05m/167-6).

Southern Oregon completes the top-5, moving up one spot from Week 1. Molly Guerra gave the Raiders their second national-leading mark after throwing 47.26m/155-1 in the discus at the Hayward Premiere. She joins Abi Stevens who owns the No. 1 high jump (1.72m/5-7¾). Stevens helped SOU record the No. 3 4×400 relay (3:50.92) at the Hayward Premiere, going up against a full field of Division I teams. Kayla Clanton and Haylee Broadahl added two national top-10 marks for Southern Oregon running the No. 6 and No. 10 fastest times, respectively. The Raiders have a total of eight top-10 marks.

Here are the remaining top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Indiana Tech, No. 7 Southeastern (Fla.), No. 8 The Master’s (Calif.), No. 9 Vanguard (Calif.) and No. 10 Life (Ga.).

Mark your calendars for May 25-27, as that’s when the 2022 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held once again in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
