Wartburg is the No. 1 team during the outdoor season for the first time in program history.

UW-La Crosse dropped one spot to No. 2 to no fault of its own. The Eagles chipped in three new or improved national top-10 marks, including an overall national lead in the 4×100 relay at 40.48. UW-La Crosse is also strong in the 4×400 relay, coming in ranked sixth at 3:14.02.

Rowan jumped four spots from No. 7 to No. 3 in Week 6. The Profs added six new or improved national top-10 marks to their ledger this past weekend, including the top-2 seasonal efforts in the long jump thanks to the duo of Nana Agyemang (No. 1, 7.54m/24-9) and Ahmir Johnson (No. 2, 7.48m/24-6½). Jah’Mere Beasley helped himself to a pair of top-6 marks in the sprints – No. 2 in the 200 (21.18) and No. 6 in the 100 (10.60).

UW-Oshkosh moved up two spots between Week 5 and Week 6. The Titans recorded two national top-10 marks this past weekend, including the No. 2 effort in the triple jump from Jonathan Wilburn at 15.05m (49-4½) and the fourth-ranked 4×400 relay squad at 3:12.79.

John Carroll helped its cause with three new or improved national top-10 marks. The fifth-ranked Blue Streaks got the second-best time of the season out of Garrett Clark in the 100 (10.56), the sixth-best time out of the 4×100 relay squad (41.34) and the 10th-best effort in the 200 from Deven Ward (21.59).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 6: No. 6 UW-Eau Claire, No. 7 UW-Stout, No. 8 Mount Union, No. 9 Loras and No. 10 UW-Whitewater.
