Grand Valley State maintained its status as the top ranked team for the second consecutive week. The Lakers have 9 national top-10 performances on the Descending Order List, with seven of them residing in the top-5. Among those are the top-2 performances of Isaac Harding (No. 1, 13:41.78) and Tanner Chada (No. 2, 13:45.19) in the 5000. Adding to the Lakers’ haul this past weekend were Eli Kosiba in the high jump (No. 2, 2.15m/7-½), while Myles picked up two big marks in the shot put (No. 3, 18.54m/60-10) and weight throw (No. 2, 19.90m/65-3½).

Ashland also held steady for a second straight week. The Eagles have eight national top-10 performances of their own with six of them ranked in the top-5. Trevor Bassitt was part of two national leading efforts down in Kentucky this past weekend, clocking 20.89 in the 200 and running on the nation’s fastest 4×400 relay (3:12.08). Bassitt now has a hand in four NCAA DII leading marks. Channing Phillips (400) and Brent Fairbanks (weight throw) maintain their No. 2 billings in their respective events, while Phillips also ran on that 4×400 this past weekend.

Adams State jumped four spots to No. 3 in Week 2 and have nine top-10 national performances on the season. Six of those efforts came from this past weekend, with Jonah Vigil headlining the team with his No. 2 ranking in the 200 (21.16c/21.09A). The Grizzlies also picked up three additional top-10 efforts in the mile this past weekend from Davonte Jett-Reynolds (No. 3), James Dunne (No. 4) and David Cardenas (No. 7). Those three join Andrew O’Keefe (No. 10) on the Descending Order List to bring their season total to four. Awet Beraki (3000) and the DMR are also ranked fifth for Adams State.

Pittsburg State slid down one spot to No. 4 this week. The Gorillas have 8 national top-10 efforts. Henry Kiner has a hand in two of those as the national leader in the triple jump (15.83m/51-11¼) and sixth in the long jump (7.47m/35-6¼). Braylen Brewer (400), TJ Caldwell (60H), Konner Swenson (shot put), and a pair of relays (4×400, DMR) also tallied top-10 efforts for Pitt State.

American International soared 15 spots to No. 5 after picking up four national top-5 efforts this past weekend at the John Thomas Terrier Classic, including two national-leading performances. We’ll start with the Yellow Jackets top-ranked DMR that clocked 9:36.62 to break the NCAA DII record. Clement Paillon, who ran on the record-breaking DMR, later turned in the top 800 of the year in 1:48.47. That effort moves him up to No. 5 all-time in DII history. AIC also had Ezra Mutai and Callum Elson turn in the third and fourth best times of the season in the 3000, respectively.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Central Missouri, No. 7 UC-Colorado Springs, No. 8 Fort Hays State, No. 9 West Texas A&M and No. 10 Lee (Tenn.).

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, as the 2022 NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships will take place at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas.
