Azusa Pacific continued to hold down the top spot in the National TFRI, followed by No. 2 Grand Valley State and No. 3 West Texas A&M, who traded spots from last week’s rankings. No. 4 Missouri Southern remained unchanged and No. 5 Adams State soared 10 spots to round out the top-5 teams.

The Lakers were able to jump over the Lady Buffs after turning in five top-10 nationally ranked efforts on the track. Hannah Roeske and Kayce Rypma are ranked No. 2 (10:19.29) and No. 9 (10:44.65) in the steeplechase, respectively. Jessica Eby also turned in a season best in the 400H (No. 6, 59.82). Grand Valley State’s 4×100 (No. 4, 45.73) and 4×400 (No. 5, 3:45.41) posted improved season efforts to move up on the Descending Order List. 

The fourth-ranked Lions had a strong outing from Payton Roberts, as she holds a pair of No. 3 rankings in both the shot put (15.44m/50-8) and discus (52.36m/171-10). Jasmine Deckard notched the sixth-fastest 100 of the year at 11.59w to go with her No. 5 billing in the 200 at 23.80w earlier this season. Deckard also ran the second leg of the Lions’ 4×100 relay that clocked 46.23, good for No. 9 on the national list.

The Grizzlies jumped into the top-5 for the first time this year following a superb weekend from the mid-distance/distance crew. Picking up new national leaders was Roisin Flanagan in the 1500 (4:17.25c/4:23.27A) and Eilish Flanagan in the steeplechase (9:52.70). HaLeigh Hunter-Galvan joined Flanagan in the steeplechase after clocking the fourth-fastest time of the season (10:31.31), while Brianna Robles and Kaylee Bogina picked up top-5 marks in the 10,000. Robles is ranked third nationally (34:15.36) and Bogina is fifth (34:35.27).
