Indiana Tech continues to hold the No. 1 spot for the fourth-straight week. The Warriors have 30 top-10 marks and are stacked in several events with numerous athletes in the top-10. The 60m and 60-meter hurdles each have three athletes, while the high jump, long jump and triple jump have four women ranked in the top-10. Out of the 29 top-10 efforts, 16 of them are top-5 marks. Indiana Tech also leads the nation in three events: Lisa Voyles is ranked first in the 800 (2:11.96); Loanie Cellard is the NAIA leader in the 3000-meter race walk (14:09.32); the 4×400 relay team improved their previous No. 1 time to 3:44.39 this weekend at the GVSU Big Meet.

Concordia (Neb.) remained at No. 2 for the second week in a row. The Bulldogs have 16 top-10 marks. Jordan Koepke achieved the No. 4 time in the 600 at the Concordia Invite this past weekend after finishing first in the event. Abigail Gerber finished first in the weight throw, recording the No. 7 mark (17.01m/55-9¾) in the country. She joins teammates Sarah Ragland (No.3) and Morgan De Jong (No. 6) on the top-10 list in the event.

Hastings (Neb.) held steady at No. 3 with 10 top-10 marks. The Broncos competed at the Concordia Invite, where Nisa Thomas finished first in the 60H recording the No. 3 time in the nation (8.66). Karsen Sears recorded the No. 4 mark in the long jump, jumping a season best of 5.88/19-3½. Lauren Tamayo added another event to her top-10 count with a No. 9 mark in the high jump (1.65m/5-5). Tamayo is also No. 2 in the pentathlon and No. 10 in the 60H.

St. Francis (Ill.) moved up one spot into No. 4. The Saints have 11 top-10 marks after recording the top-ranked mark in the DMR (11:58.64) last weekend at the GVSU Big Meet. The DMR featured the distance duo of Sabrina Baftiri and Laisha Corona, who combine for seven of the team’s 11 top-10 marks. In addition to the DMR, Baftiri and Corona both picked up personal bests in the mile (No. 4, 4:58.20) and 3000 (No. 2, 9:48.80), respectively. Baftiri is also No. 1 in the 5000, No. 3 in the 3000 and No. 4 in the 1000. Corona ranks second in the 5000 and third in the mile.

William Carey (Miss.) completes the top-5, falling one spot from last week. The Crusaders are fresh off a team title at the Southern States Athletic Conference Championships. Brittany Jones achieved a new season best in the long jump, improving her nation leading mark to 6.01m (19-8¾). She also leads the nation in the triple jump. Selieci Myles and Joy Abu swapped places in the 60H rankings. Abu was previously ranked first while Myles was ranked second, but Myles took over after winning the 60H SSAC championship with a new No. 1 time of 8.44. Abu now holds the No. 2 mark (8.54).
