The story for the Lakers all season has been its depth across the board, and continue to add to it after playing host to the GVSU Big Meet this past weekend. Two more division leading marks were turned in between Nicole Sreenan in the 400 (53.80) and the Distance Medley Relay of Klaudia O’Malley, Sarah Buella, Molly McLaughlin and Allie Ludge. In the weight throw, Bobbie Goodwin extended her national lead in the weight throw and is now the No. 9 performer all-time in NCAA Division II history.

Missouri Southern rose two spots and now sit beind the Lakers thanks to eight top-10 marks. The pole vault is a favorite for the Lions, as they own three of the top-10 marks in NCAA Division II. Emily Presley extended her national lead in the event with a clearance of 4.22m (13-10) and Samantha Petry improved to No. 7 after turning in a personal best effort, while Elena Bisotto is ranked No. 9. In the 60 Hurdles, Kiara Smith turned in the eighth best time of the season to join Cornesia Calhoun-White (No. 3) in the top-10 of the national performance list.

Northwest Missouri continue to stay in the mix with eight top-10 performances. Already having top performances in the pentathlon (No. 4), the 400 (No. 10), and part of the 4×400 relay that is ranked fourth, Jordan Hammond clocked the fourth-fastest 60 Hurdle time of the year.

Following the Bearcats are No. 4 Lincoln (Mo.) and No. 5 Adams State. The Grizzlies climbed four spots from No. 9 a week ago with a strong weekend from its distance crew. Stephanie Cotter rose to the top of the Descending Order List in the mile, while HaLeigh Hunter-Galvan clocked the third-fastest time in the 5000 at 16:21.22.

While No. 7 Indianapolis earned a one spot bump from No. 8 a week ago, Azusa Pacific and Pittsburg State climbed No. 9 and No. 10, respectively, to move back in the top-10. The Greyhounds had Berenice Cleyet-Merle clock the national leading time in the 800 to go along with her No. 4 ranking in the mile, and part of the DMR with the eighth-fastest time of the year. Brianna Cooks improved upon her mark in the weight throw and now ranked No. 4 in the event for the Gorillas.

Three new teams enter the rankings this week: Central State improved ten spots from No. 29 to No. 19. San Francisco State, making the biggest jump in the top-25, moved from No. 35 to No. 20. Oklahoma Baptist improved six spots to No. 25.

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.
