Caleb Futter is ranked No. 4 (8:51.30) and Connor Schwartz is No. 5 (8:52.32).

Ashland soared three spots to come in at No. 2 this week. Trevor Bassitt added another national leading performance to his resume, going 46.63 over 400. He also teamed up with Brayden Chaney, Keshun Jones and Channing Phillips as he anchored the 4×400 to the fastest time of the year (3:08.78). A new top-10 performance for the Eagles comes from Travis Moore, as his score of 6932 in the decathlon puts him at No. 7 on the Descending Order List.

No. 3 West Texas A&M remained steady, while No. 4 Angelo State dropped two spots and No. 5 Pittsburg State fell one to make up for Ashland’s improvement.
