British Columbia continued their dominant season with a win at the Cascade Conference Outdoor Championships. Katherine Lucas had a phenomenal weekend, earning individual wins and personal bests in the 100, 200 and 400, while also helping the Thunderbirds finish second in the 4×100 and first in the 4×400. Lucas ranks eighth in the 100 and 11th in both the 200 and 400. British Columbia moved up to No. 6 in the 4×100 (46.27) and No. 4 in the 4×400 (3:47.37) with their performances last weekend. In field events, a pair of new top-10 marks were recorded with Sage Stoyka Kay winning the pole vault (No. 8, 3.65m/11-11¾) and Emma Rastad winning the long jump (No. 7, 5.81m/19-¾).

Indiana Tech added two new top-5 marks at the Oakland Last Chance Meet. Derica Gibson ran a wind-aided 11.65 (No. 5) in the 100 and Kiya Pogue ran a wind-aided 14.01 (No. 5) in the 100H. The Warriors have 19 top-10 marks including three national-leading efforts in the 800, 4×400 and triple jump.

William Carey (Miss.) jumps up two spots to regain the No. 3 spot. The Crusaders hosted a last chance meet over the weekend. Joy Abu leads things on the track side, leading the nation in the 100H (13.60) and 400H (57.78), while also owning the No. 2 400 (53.92). Brittany Jones leads things on the field side with three ranked efforts in the high jump (No. 9), long jump (No. 2) and triple jump (No. 3). Jones is the first leg and Abu is the anchor leg on the Crusaders top-ranked 4×100 relay (45.12).

Concordia (Neb.) fell one spot up one spot to No. 4. The Bulldogs have 11 top-10 efforts. Josie Puelz has the lone No. 1 mark with her pole vault mark of 4.10m (13-5¼). Amira Cummings gave the Bulldogs another top-10 mark in the pole vault after clearing the eighth-best height of 3.65m (11-11¾) at the Loper Twilight. She’s tied with teammate Erin Mapson.

Hastings (Neb.) drops one spot to No. 5. The Broncos enter the NAIA Outdoor Championships with 11 top-10 marks. Lauren Tamayo owns three individual marks in the 100H (No. 10), high jump (No. 2) and the heptathlon (No. 2). She’s also a part of the 4×100 relay (No. 8). Karsen Sears has the only national-leading mark on the team with her long jump of 6.06mw (19-10¾).

Outside the top five, No. 8 Aquinas (Mich.) and No. 10 Southern Oregon both moved up one spot. Aquinas’ Tarshana Kimbrough ran the No. 12 400 (56.07) at the St. Francis Fighting Chance Invite.
