The Lions, setting a season high in the National Rating Index, had multiple top performers over the course of the weekend at the MSSU Lion Open & Multi. Vaulters Emily Presley and Elena Bisotto improved upon their season bests, and are now ranked first and fifth on the performance list, respectively. In the shot put, Payton Roberts turned in a season best effort that is the second farthest throw on the year. Cornesia Calhoun-White also had a strong weekend, as the freshman ran 8.57 in the 60 Hurdles for the third fastest time of the year.

West Texas A&M improved four spots from No. 10 to No. 6 this week. Fatim Affessi’s season debut in the triple jump was a successful one, as the senior turned in a national leading mark of 12.78m (41-11 ¼). The Buffs now boast three national leaders – Affessi in the long and triple jumps, and Zada Swoopes in the shot put.

Making its first appearance in the top-10 is UC-Colorado Springs with a five-spot improvement to No. 7 for a season best rank. The Mountain Lions received a boost from their distance medley relay, which turned in the third-fastest time on the performance list at the Mountain Lion Open.

Two teams entering the top-25 for the first time this year are No. 23 Fayetteville State and No. 25 Queens (N.C.). Fayetteville State is also enjoying the program’s highest national ranking after jumping up eight spots from No. 31.

The Broncos saw Jerinique Brooks add another provisional mark to her season, running 7.55 in the 60 to sit at No. 10. She also has the fourth fastest time in the 200 and is part of the 4×400 relay that is currently ranked fifth.

The Royals, moving up two spots from No. 27, are getting two top-10 performances from freshman Jenny Koehne. She is currently second in the long jump and ninth in the 60 Hurdles.

Be sure to continue checking back at the National Rating Index each Tuesday to see how the list evolves ahead of the 2020 NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships on March 13-14 in Birmingham, Alabama.
