No. 1 British Columbia continues to post a large score in the TFRI, compiling more to the tally after a successful weekend at the Ralph Vernacchia Invitational at Western Washington. The Thunderbirds still hold four division-leading marks and 12 that land in the nation’s top five.

Indiana Tech at No. 2 added to their score as indoor national triple jump champion Destiny Copeland leapt to the division lead in the event with a 12.47m/40-11 mark at the Penn Relays. Also, the 4×400 squad turned in a time of 3:44.26 that also leads the nation.

Joy Abu improved her season best in the 400 meters (53.92), moving to No. 2 among the NAIA this year in winning the event at Mississippi State’s Maroon and White Invitational this past weekend for No. 3 William Carey (Miss.).

No. 4 Concordia (Neb.) improved their standing in the 4×400 (3:49.86) and 4×800 (9:09.24) relay with strong runs at the Drake Relays this past weekend. 

For the first time this season, Hastings (Neb.) has reached the top five. They moved up one spot after posting national top-10 times in the 100 meter hurdles by Nisa Thomas (14.02) and Lauren Tamayo (14.15) at Nebraska Wesleyan’s Prairie Wolf Invitational.

No. 9 Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) jumped four spots, returning to the top ten for the first time since the first week of the national rankings.

Just three weeks until the start of the NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships that will be held in Gulf Shores, Ala., May 25-27.
