UW-La Crosse is No. 1 after some notable efforts at the UW-Platteville Invitational this past weekend. The Eagles saw Abby Meidl take over the national lead in the pole vault at 3.71m (12-2), Skye Digman improve her No. 2 billing in the shot put to 13.87m (45-6¼) and the 4×100 relay team top the NCAA DIII Descending Order List at 47.62.

Loras jumped four spots from No. 6 to No. 2. The Duhawks added or improved six national top-10 marks this past weekend at the Wartburg Outdoor Select, including Kassie Rosenbum’s 16:45.82 effort that sits second on the 5000-meter list and the fourth-ranked efforts from Grace Alley and Alyssa Pfadenhauer in the heptathlon and 400, respectively.

Former No. 1 George Fox dropped two spots to No. 3, right in front of No. 4 Johns Hopkins, which didn’t budge from last week. The Blue Jays helped their cause with a trio of national top-5 marks this past weekend, including the No. 2 mark in the 5000 from Ella Baran of 16:40.85.

Mount Union climbed three spots from No. 8 to No. 5. The Purple Raiders received four new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend, including two from Kennady Gibbins. The sophomore is now ranked first nationally in the heptathlon at 4660 points and third in the high jump at 1.69m (5-6½).
