You might find it hard to believe, but there were absolutely no changes to the order of the top-10 teams from Week 4. Everything remained the same from No. 1 New Mexico JC down to No. 10 Bryant & Stratton (Va.).

Top-ranked New Mexico JC certainly helped its cause this past weekend at the Don Kirby Tailwind Open in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The T-Birds received an improved national-leading mark from Victoria Villaneuva in the pole vault at 3.80m (12-5½), in addition to a fourth-ranked effort in the 400 from Maria Simanca (55.71c) and an eighth-ranked heave in the shot put from Luisarys Toledo at 13.31m (43-8).

Second-ranked South Plains (Texas) and third-ranked Barton County CC had athletes turn in some big marks this past weekend, too. Camille Lewis (No. 2, 400H) and the 4×100 relay team (No. 1) stood out for the Lady Texans, while Lashanna Graham took over the national lead in the 400H with an altitude-converted 57.37 for the Cougars.

Faith Linga left her mark on the record book and the Descending Order List. The Iowa Western CC star set an all-time NJCAA best in the 10,000 with her 34:42.65 clocking at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa. The Reivers are currently ranked fifth nationally.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Cloud County CC, No. 7 Central Arizona, No. 8 Butler CC, No. 9 Mesa (Ariz.) CC and No. 10 Bryant & Stratton (Va.).
