LSU continued to hold onto a healthy lead from its performances the following weekend at the Texas Relays. Adding to the Tigers’ haul of nationally ranked performances is Favour Ofili and Emma Robbins with their efforts this weekend at the LSU Battle on the Bayou. Ofili clocked the third fastest time this season in the 200 at 22.69. Robbins improved upon her season best in the hammer throw to 66.00m (216-7), which is the ninth best throw this season. LSU now has 14 top-10 nationally ranked marks through the first three weeks of their outdoor season.

Southern California improved two spots from its Week 1 ranking. The Women of Troy registered eight top-10 nationally ranked performances at the Florida Relays. Three of those performances are national leading marks: Twanisha Terry in the 100 (11.08); Kaelin Roberts in the 400 (51.23); Anna Cockrell in the 400H (55.65). Cockrell also improved upon her season best in the 100H to 12.89 for the No. 3 time on the Descending Order List.

The third-ranked Longhorns saw five top-10 nationally ranked performances at Texas vs. Texas A&M, bringing their total to 12. Kynnedy Flannel is the owner of two of those marks, as she ran the No. 2 time in the 200 (22.55) and No. 8 time in the 100 (11.23). Stacey-Ann Williams also clocked 51.24 in the 400 in Austin, Texas, good for No. 2 in the early get-go.

Arkansas sent a small group of distance runners to the Hayward Premiere at the University of Oregon. Leading the Razorbacks was Abby Gray with her 15:48.53 in the 5000, which sits at No. 9 on the season. Also posting top-13 national efforts were Katie Izzo (10,000) and Kennedy Thomson (800).

Rounding out the top-5 in Week 2 is Texas A&M with a one spot improvement thanks to four top-5 nationally ranked efforts at Texas vs. Texas A&M. Tyra Gittens led the team with her national leading clearance in the high jump of 1.90m (6-2¾). The Aggies also added a trio of No. 3 performances: Charokee Young in the 400 (51.52); Athing Mu in the 1500 (4:16.06); the 4×400 (3:29.43) that featured Young and Mu on the third and fourth legs, respectively.

Here are the rest of the teams in the top-10 in Week 2: No. 6 BYU, No. 7 Alabama, No. 8 Florida, No. 9 Florida State and No. 10 Kentucky.
