British Columbia remains as the top team for the fourth week in a row. Not much has changed for Thunderbirds as they continue to lead the nation with 20 top-10 efforts. UBC lead the nation in four events and have three athletes ranked No. 2 in different events. In action this past weekend was only the multi-event athletes as one new mark was recorded by Hassy Fashina-Bombata in the heptathlon. Fashina-Bombata finished second at the Cascade Collegate Conference Multi-Event Championships with a score of 4867, ranking her fourth-best in NAIA.

Indiana Tech continues to occupy the No. 2 spot after making the big jump last week. The Warriors have 17 top-10 marks after competing last weekend at the Gibson Invitational. Soyinne Grenyion and Shalonda Terry recorded the No. 3 (11.59) and No. 7 (11.79) times, respectively in the 100. Another pair of athletes recorded top-10 marks in the 100-meter hurdles with Katlyn Jones and Kiya Pogue. Jones ran the No. 4 time of 13.88, while Pogue ran the eighth-best time of 14.20. The last new mark was recorded by Xuxa Peart in the 400 where she finished second with a time of 55.14 (No. 5).

William Carey (Miss.) holds the No. 3 position, coming off a team title at the Southern States Athletic Conference Championships. The Crusaders took over the 4×100 national lead after the star-studded group of Brittany Jones, Fredricka McKenzie, Salieci Myles and Joy Abu won the event with a time of 45.12. In addition to running the 4×100, Abu helped the 4×400 team finish second and the 4×800 finish first. She also won individual titles in the 100H and 400H, taking home a load of hardware after a busy weekend. In the field events, Brittany Jones cleared the No. 8 height in the high jump (1.67m/5-5¾) and recorded the No. 2 triple jump (12.30m/40-4¼).  She won the high jump and long jump, while in the triple jump finishing runner-up behind her sister Nevagant Jones, who’s the national leader in the event.

Concordia (Neb.) remains at the No. 4 spot. The Bulldogs recorded three new top-10 efforts all in the discus at the Jim Dutcher Memorial. The sophomore trio of Alli Owings, Sara Huss and Erin Painter finished second, third and fifth, respectively. Owings recorded the No. 6 throw of 47.75m (156-8). Huss finished with the seventh-best mark of 46.51m (152-7) and Painter with the No. 9 throw of 45.79m (150-3). Concordia exited the weekend with 11 top-10 efforts.

Life (Ga.) stays put at No. 5 after making their debut in the top-5 last week. The Running Eagles had a great weekend at the Georgia Tech Invitational, improving top marks and beating NCAA Division I competition. Iantha Wright recorded the No. 4 100 (11.60), after finishing fourth while being the top non-Division I athlete in the event. Wright, along with Breanna Pratt, Dagbjort Magnusdottir and Brianna Florvilus gave the Running Eagles the No. 1 4×400 time of 3:44.68 with a third-place finish. In the 110H, ran 13.73 (No. 3) en route to finishing fourth. Kaylee Lowe finished second in the long jump, recording the nation’s third-best mark of 5.95m (19-6¼). Life has a total of 10 top-10 marks.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Hastings (Neb.), No. 7 Marian (Ind.), No. 8 Aquinas (Mich.), No. 9 Southeastern (Fla.) and No. 10 Southern Oregon.

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.
