For a second consecutive week, the top-5 is No. 1 Indiana Tech, No. 2 Concordia (Neb.), No. 3 Hastings (Neb.), No. 4 Dordt (Iowa) and No. 5 Friends (Kan.).

The top-ranked Warriors solidified its position by taking four of the top-5 nationally ranked spots in the pentathlon. Kylin Nichols now holds the national lead in the event at 3488, followed by Leondra Correia (No. 3, 3457), Renique Smith (No. 4, 3390) and Destiny Copeland (No. 5, 3330).

Concordia (Neb.) added to their haul with several nationally ranked performances. Josie Puelz cleared 4.08m (13-4 ½) for the No. 1 pole vault this season. Other strong performances include Sarah Lewis in 60H (No. 4, 8.88), Elle Luehr in the shot put (No. 5, 13.35m/43-9 ¾) and Sarah Ragland in the weight throw (No. 5, 16.77m/55-¼). Indiana Tech’s 4×400 also boasts the No. 2 time in 3:54.37c (3:57.48).
