New Mexico JC held steady at No. 1 thanks to several new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend. The T-Birds saw Richara McNeil move up to No. 2 in the 100H at 13.68, Flomena Asekol grab the No. 4 spot in the 5000 at 17:43.46 and the 4×100 relay team clock the fourth-best mark of the season at 45.53.

South Plains (Texas) inched a bit closer to the top thanks to a big weekend. Rosemary Chukwuma shined the most, as she earned the national lead in the 100 at 11.21. Chukwuma also helped out on the 4×100 relay that is now ranked No. 1 as well. Don’t forget about Cemore Donald, either, who is now ranked third nationally in the 800 at 2:12.94.

Iowa Western CC jumped two spots from No. 5 to No. 3. A busy weekend at the NJCAA Region XI Championships gave the Reivers a boost as they added or improved 11 national top-10 marks on their ledger. Aliyah McNeil is now the national leader in the high jump at 1.80m (5-10¾). Nickisha Pryce hit the second-fastest 200-meter effort of the season at 23.33. Victory George stood out in the horizontal jumps as she is now ranked No. 2 in both the long jump at 6.31m (20-8½) and triple jump at 12.62m (41-5).

Barton County CC dropped one spot from No. 3 to No. 4 to no fault of its own. The Cougars turned in a number of strong marks, including a national-leading performance in the long jump from Nia Robinson, who became the third-best performer in NJCAA history at 6.56m (21-6¼).

Cloud County CC got back in the top-5 at No. 5. The T-Birds hauled in 10 new or improved national top-10 marks this past weekend, including four in the throws alone. Marie Forbes is now No. 2 on the discus chart at 50.80m (166-8) and third in the shot put at 14.27m (46-10).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 6: No. 6 Iowa Central CC, No. 7 Central Arizona, No. 8 Butler CC, No. 9 Mesa (Ariz.) CC and No. 10 Cowley College.
