Top-ranked Texas extended its lead atop the National TFRI between Week 3 and Week 4. While the Longhorns only added or improved two national top-10 marks this past weekend – Jalil Brewer in the shot put (No. 5, 19.90m/65-3½) and Micaiah Harris in the 200 (No. 6, 20.31w) – their athletes continue to dot the Descending Order List otherwise. Tripp Piperi had another huge series this past weekend at the Mt. SAC Relays to maintain his hold of the No. 1 spot in the shot put, while 12 other performances by Texas reside among the national top-10.

Florida jumped two spots from No. 4 to No. 2 after starring at the Tom Jones Memorial. You can’t start anywhere else than the Gators’ 4×400 relay, which broke the collegiate record and became the first collegiate team to dip under 2:59.00 with its 2:58.53 effort. Ryan Willie, one of the four men on that relay team alongside Jacory Patterson, Jacob Miley and Champion Allison, cracked the national top-5 in the open 400 with his 45.16 effort. Florida still holds the national lead in the 4×100 relay at 38.47 as well as the 200 with Patterson with his 20.20 clocking.

Texas A&M dropped one spot to No. 3 to no fault of its own. The Aggies added or improved to national top-10 marks this past weekend with Chevannie Hanson in the 400 (No. 10, 45.72) and NCAA Indoor champion Brandon Miller in his signature 800 (No. 1:47.20). Texas A&M has nine total national top-10 marks, including 200-meter co-national-leader Devon Achane at 20.20.

Texas Tech climbed three spots from No. 7 to No. 4. The Red Raiders received a massive effort from Moad Zahafi in the 800, as he became the third-fastest athlete in collegiate history with his 1:43.69 winner at the Tom Jones Memorial. Zahafi joined Courtney Lindsey as Texas Tech athletes with national-leading marks (Lindsey is the co-national leader in the 200 at 20.20).

Alabama rolled into the top-5 between Week 3 and Week 4. No mark loomed larger for the Crimson Tide this past weekend than Eliud Kipsang’s collegiate record in the 1500 meters of 3:33.74. Kipsang won the top section of the 1500 at the Bryan Clay Invitational with that mark. Victor Kiprop and Alan De Falchi gave Alabama national top-10 marks in the 10,000 (No. 10, 28:15.72) and discus (No. 10, 60.57m/198-9), respectively.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Georgia (up 13 spots), No. 7 LSU (down four spots), No. 8 BYU (up three spots), No. 9 Arkansas (up 21 spots) and No. 10 Kentucky (down five spots). Both the Cougars and the Razorbacks saw athletes take over the national lead in their respective events: Kenneth Rooks in the steeplechase at 8:32.75) and Ayden Owens in the decathlon with his wind-legal collegiate record (8528).

Mark your calendars for June 8-11, as that’s when the 2022 NCAA DI Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon!
