Jalen Purcell also stood out this past weekend in the 200 with his NJCAA No. 2 effort of 20.89c (20.82A).

Barton County CC dropped one spot from No. 2 to No. 3 to no fault of its own. The Cougars have 21 national top-10 marks, of which they added or improved 11 this past weekend.

Former No. 1 South Plains (Texas) fell three spots to No. 4 despite a strong weekend. The Texans were led by Khaleb McRae and Seydi Sall, as they notched the top 400-meter mark (46.29) and 800-meter mark (1:51.70) this season so far, respectively. South Plains (Texas) now has 20 national top-10 marks in 2021, including five national leaders.
