Texas is the top-ranked team for the fourth-straight week. The Longhorns turned in two new or improved efforts this weekend at the Mt. SAC Relays: Julien Alfred is ranked No. 4 in the 100 with her 10.98 (+1.7) winner; Kynnedy Flannel won the 200 in 22.61 (+1.6) to move to No. 6 on the Descending Order List. The Longhorns continue to hold the national lead in the 4×100 relay (42.42) and 4×400 relay (3:22.94). Texas has 12 national top-10 performances on the season.

Florida moved up one spot to No. 2 after turning in six new or improved national top-10 marks at the Tom Jones Memorial, including a one-two punch in the long jump by Jasmine Moore (No. 1, 14.07m/46-2) and Natricia Hooper (No. 2, 14.03m/46-½). Grace Stark clocked 12.58 (+1.9) in the 100H for the third best time this season and moved to No. 10 all-time in collegiate history. Elsewhere on the track for the Gators, Talitha Diggs cracked the top-5 in the 400 (51.93), while Imogen Barrett turned in two top-10 efforts in the 800 (No. 4, 2:01.65) and 1500 (No. 8, 4:14.55).

Texas A&M fell one spot to No. 3 to no fault of its own. The Aggies turned in six new or improved national top-10 efforts in an impressive outing at the Tom Jones Memorial. Charokee Young lowered her national lead in the 400 after clocking a season best 49.87 to become the fourth-fastest performer in collegiate history. Tierra Robinson-Jones also turned in a season best in the 400 of 50.89 to maintain her No. 4 billing on the outdoor leaderboard.

LSU improved one spot from No. 5 to No. 4. The biggest mark turned in for the Tigers over the weekend was Favour Ofili’s collegiate record in the 200, scoring the track in 21.96 (+1.3) to win the Tom Jones Memorial. Katy-Ann McDonald had two national top-3 performances herself. She took over the national lead in the 800 (2:00.98) and moved to No. 3 in the 1500 (4:13.07) to pull off the double at the Byran Clay Invitational

Arkansas is back in the top-5 for the second time this season to round out this week’s top teams. The Razorbacks were led by a pair of No. 4 efforts by Logan Jolly in the steeplechase (9:45.47) and Lauren Gregory in the 5000 (15:25.17). In the sprints, Paris Peoples clocked the No. 8 time in the 400 (52.01).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Texas Tech (up one spot), No. 7 Kentucky (down three spots), No. 8 BYU (held steady), No. 9 New Mexico (up nine spots) and No. 10 Oregon (held steady). Courtney Wayment paced the Cougars with her national lead in the steeplechase of 9:26.88, also making her the No. 4 performer in collegiate history.

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