Minnesota State jumped two spots from Week 2 to the No. 1 spot for the first time in program history. The Mavericks have 11 national top-10 marks this season across eight different events. Three of those efforts belong to Denisha Cartwright, who is No. 1 in the 200 (24.12c/24.9), No. 5 in the 60H (8.59) and No. 7 in the 60 (7.51). Two other athletes hold two top-10 national efforts: Makayla Jackson is No. 2 in the 60 (7.38) and No. 4 in the long jump (6.05m/19-10¼); Katie Taylor is No. 2 in the weight throw (20.03m/65-8¾) and No. 7 in the shot put (14.99m/49-2¼). Ja’Cey Simmons (200), Flore Gracia (triple jump), Kaylee Jensen (weight throw) and the 4×400 relay have also bolstered the Mavericks’ haul with top-10 efforts in their events.

Azusa Pacific climbed two spots of their own to come in at No. 2 in Week 3. The Cougars have turned in 10 top-10 efforts this year, including eight that sit among the top-5 in their respective events and three national leaders. Jaylah Walker has a hand in four of those efforts, as she is No. 1 in the 400 (54.63), No. 4 in the 60H (8.57), No. 5 in the 200 (24.45c/24.38A) and runs on the fourth-ranked 4×400 relay. Alayna Verner, who also carries the baton on the 4×400 relay, clocked the fifth-best time of the year in the 400 (55.37) to join Walker on the Descending Order List.

Pittsburg State slid one spot from No. 2 to No. 3 in Week 3. The Gorillas picked up two national top-3 performances this weekend. Christine Williams ran the No. 2 time in the 200 (24.13) and Kyla Davis moved to No. 3 in the pole vault (4.11m/13-5¾). Isabelle Peters (pole vault) and Trace Mosby (pentathlon) continue to hold the top marks in their events.

West Texas A&M climbed two spots to No. 4 for its first appearance in the top-5 this season. The Lady Buffs have eight national top-10 efforts with five of them sitting among the top-5. Zada Swoopes had a big weekend at the New Mexico Classic, throwing 17.19m (56-4¾) in the shot put to improve upon her DII lead and turn in another all-time effort. She also won the weight throw to move to No. 7 on the Descending Order List. In the jumps, Taylor Nelloms also improved her No. 1 ranking in the triple jump (12.99m/42-7½) and soared to No. 4 in the high jump (1.76m/5-9¼).

Grand Valley State fell four spots from No. 1 to No. 5 to no fault of its own. The Lakers have seven national top-10 efforts and one national leader this year. Emma Richards threw a season best in the shot put of 15.23m (49-11¾) to improve upon her No. 4 ranking on the Descending Order List.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Indianapolis, No. 7 UC-Colorado Springs, No. 8 Adams State, No. 9 Saginaw Valley State and No. 10 CSU Pueblo.

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.
