UW-La Crosse might still headline the National TFRI, but now second-ranked Loras jumped two spots and gained ground between Week 7 and Week 8. The Duhawks added or improved five national top-10 marks this past weekend, including the second-best discus performance of the season from Carly Fisher at 48.15m (158-0). Other strong efforts by Loras athletes came in the sprints (Terrianna Black and Marion Edwards are now ranked fourth nationally in the 100 and 200, respectively) as well as the 400H (Elayna Bahl moved up to No. 3 on the seasonal chart) and 4×100 relay (No. 2, 46.87).

Both Ithaca and UW-Eau Claire dropped one spot as the Duhawks soared past them. The Bombers did receive a strong effort from Juliann Terry in the pole vault. Terry is now ranked second nationally at 3.85 (12-7½). That is one of eight top-10 marks for Ithaca’s women.

SUNY Geneseo held steady at No. 5, but saw an all-time effort by Emily Pomainville. The former National Athlete of the Week went 2:04.36 over 800 meters to become just the fourth woman in NCAA Division III history to crack 2:05 in the event.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 8: No. 6 Johns Hopkins, No. 7 Tufts, No. 8 George Fox, No. 9 Nebraska Wesleyan and No. 10 Pacific Lutheran. The Lutes were the Biggest Mover of the Week in the top-10 as they jumped 10 spots from Week 7 thanks to Bailey Forsyth, who is now ranked first nationally in both the 100 and 200.

The 2021 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held May 27-29 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
