The top-ranked Eagles ended the season with a wealth of national top-10 marks – try 15 of them, to be exact. Skye Digman gave UW-La Crosse its only two chart-toppers with her efforts in the shot put (14.11m/46-3½) and weight throw (17.95m/58-10¾). Hannah Zenkovich is the only other Eagle ranked in the top-2 nationally, as she owns the No. 2 spot in the 60H (8.69).
Loras jumped three spots from No. 5 to No. 2 based off its efforts at the DIII Elite Indoor Track & Field Championships. Kassie Rosenbum ended the season with a strong outing in the 3000 at 9:44.14, which put her No. 2 on the season-ending Descending Order List. Rosenbum was also on the now third-ranked DMR, which pairs well with the second-ranked 4×400 relay (3:55.01).
Wartburg helped its cause this past weekend and received a three-spot bump from No. 6 to No. 3. The best individual mark of the bunch came from Aubrie Fisher in the mile, as she is now fourth nationally at 4:59.47. The Knights’ 4×400 relay also stood out on their home track with an effort that is now ranked third nationally at 3:55.23.
Further down in the top-10, you’ll find No. 8 Bethel (Minn.) and No. 9 Dubuque, which improved their billing multiple spots since Week 7 and sit behind No. 4 UW-Eau Claire, No. 5 John Carroll, No. 6 UW-Oshkosh and No. 7 Nebraska Wesleyan. The Royals received two chart-topping marks from Kelsie Sealock in the 60H (8.62) and the 4×400 relay (3:54.07), while the Spartans got a boost from Ya’Mia Ailes-Primes in the 60 (No. 5, 7.75).
