With that known, let’s take a look at the most recent NJCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index that was released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The top-4 teams all remained the same from the previous week, as New Mexico JC held steady at No. 1, followed by South Plains (Texas) at No. 2, Barton County CC at No. 3 and Iowa Central CC at No. 4. The Tritons were actually the only team that added or improved several national top-10 marks with Ashley Michaeux moving up to No. 2 in the shot put at 14.85m (48-8¼) and Hannah Connell now third nationally in the 100 at 11.49, among others.
Iowa Western CC leapfrogged Cloud County CC into the No. 5 spot. The Reivers added one national top-10 mark to its ledger this past weekend, but it was a big one – Nickisha Pryce is now ranked second in the 200 at 23.41, which pairs well with her national lead in the 400.
Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Cloud County CC, No. 7 Central Arizona, No. 8 Butler CC, No. 9 Mesa (Ariz.) CC and No. 10 Bryant & Stratton (Va.).
