Second-ranked Indiana Tech moved closer to top-ranked Concordia (Neb.). The Warriors had three season best efforts that impacted the national scene. Xuxa Peart and Brianna Tillman moved to No. 5 and No. 7 in the 400, respectively. Peart clocked 55.99 to finish second at the Pacesetter Sports Invitational with Tillman finishing right behind in third at 56.07. Tillman also ran a leg on the 4×100 (No. 2, 45.50).

Third-ranked William Carey (Miss.), fourth-ranked Hastings (Neb.) and fifth-ranked Wayland Baptist (Texas) round out the top-5. The Crusaders’ Joy Abu clocked a season best of 58.93 in the 400H. That was an improvement on her national lead in the event and goes well with her No. 3 ranking in the 100H (14.09). The Broncos had a top-10 effort from Veronica Pinkerton, who clocked 2:14.85 in the 800 to move to No. 9 on the Descending Order List.
