It didn’t take long for Grand Valley State to get back to the top of the National TFRI. The Lakers gained one spot and have 10 national top-10 performances, including two of the nation’s top efforts from Klaudia O’Malley in the 3000 (9:23.65) and Judith Essemiah in the weight throw (20.43m/67-½). O’Malley also picked up another top-10 effort in the mile, running 4:48.34 for the seventh-fastest time this season, while Taryn Chapko clocked the ninth-best time in the 800.

Pittsburg State comes in at No. 2 following a two-spot improvement. The last time the Gorillas were ranked second was in Week 2 of the 2018 season. They have amassed 10 national top-10 efforts, with half of them sitting among the top-5. Trace Mosby has a hand in three of those efforts as she has the nation’s best score in the pentathlon (4122), No. 3 in the 60H (8.51) and No. 4 in the high jump (1.75m/5-8¾). Isabelle Peters gave Pittsburg State its second national lead of the season, clearing 4.13m (13-6½) in the pole vault, while Christine Williams clocked the second-fastest time in the 200 (24.43).

Minnesota State held steady at No. 3 for the second straight week and have 10 national top-10 performances on the season. Ja’Cey Simmons headlines the team this week as she holds the No. 1 time in the 200 (24.29c/24.66) on the Descending Order List. Other Mavericks holding top-5 efforts are Katie Taylor (weight throw), Makayla Jackson (60), Denisha Cartwright (60H) and the 4×400 relay.

Azusa Pacific slid three spots to No. 4 in Week 2 and to no fault of their own. While the Cougars were off from competition this past weekend, they continue to hold eight national top-10 performances, with six of them taking up residence in the top-5. Mechaela Hyacynth and Chinenye Agina lead the nation in the 60 (7.35c/7.31A) and high jump (1.83m/6-0), respectively, while Jaylah Walker has two top-5 performances in the 200 and 400.

UC-Colorado Springs rounds out the top-5 after jumping six spots. The Mountain Lions have six top-10 marks on the Descending Order List, including the national lead in the long jump thanks to Hannah Meek’s leap of 6.37m (20-10¾). Elsewhere, Kayla Zink ranks second in the 60 (746c/7.42A) and Layla Almasri is fifth in the mile (4:47.74c/4:54.93A). Almasri also runs on the second-ranked DMR (11:39.54c/12:02.87A).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 West Texas A&M, No. 7 Adams State, No. 8 Indianapolis, No. 9 Saginaw Valley State and No. 10 Academy of Art. No one was better than the Greyhounds’ Berenice Cleyet-Merle, who won the 800 at the IU Relays in 2:03.89 for the second-fastest time in DII history.

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.
