Nothing changed at the top, as top-ranked UW-La Crosse is still followed by second-ranked Ithaca. The Eagles added seven new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend at the WIAC Outdoor Championships, though. Skye Digman had her hand in two of those efforts as she is ranked third nationally in the shot put at 14.71m (48-3¼) and fourth nationally in the discus at 45.85m (150-5). Another pair of strong marks was turned in by Hannah Zenkovich in the hurdles as she now sits fifth nationally in both the 100H (14.22) and 400H (1:02.21).

UW-Eau Claire jumped two spots and gained even more ground on the top-2 teams thanks to its performance at the WIAC Outdoor Championships. The Blugold added or improved five new national top-10 marks to their ledger, including the second-best mark in the 4×100 of 47.28. UW-Eau Claire also saw Gabby Hicks move up to No. 3 in the discus at 46.47m (152-6), Catie Fobbe now rank fifth in the shot put at 14.18m (46-6¼) and Megan Wallace lock down the seventh-best javelin throw of the season at 42.93m (140-10).

Loras dropped one spot to no fault of its own. The fourth-ranked Duhawks saw Alyssa Pfadenhauer improve her seasonal best in the 400 to 55.53, which now sits third nationally.

SUNY Geneseo held steady at No. 5 and got an improved mark in the 800 from Emily Pomainville, who is now ranked third nationally in the 800 at 2:11.49.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 7: No. 6 Johns Hopkins, No. 7 Tufts, No. 8 Nebraska Wesleyan, No. 9 UW-Oshkosh and No. 10 George Fox.

The 2021 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held from May 27-29 in Greensboro, North Carolina. It was recently announced that fans will be allowed at the meet up to a capacity of 50 percent (8,000) and tickets are $10 per day.
