2022 NCAA DII Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – The biggest weekend of the indoor season had major implications on this week’s rankings!

Grand Valley State jumped four spots back to the top of the National TFRI after its weekend hosting the GVSU Big Meet. The Lakers had six new or improved national top-10 performances, including two national leaders from Judith Essemiah in the weight throw (20.71m/67-11½) and the DMR at 11:31.14. Klaudia O’Malley and Taryn Chapko, who were on the DMR, also registered top-10 performances in their events: O’Malley is third in the mile at 4:44.97; Chapko is seventh in the 800 at 2:10.03. The pole vault duo of Ellianne Kimes (4.16m/13-7 ¾) and Carly Livingston (4.06m/13-3¾) are also ranked second and seventh in the event, respectively.

Minnesota State fell one spot to No. 2 in Week 4. Denisha Cartwright led the Mavericks with her improved 60H effort of 8.49 that ranks her fourth on the leaderboard. Cartwright was also part of the sixth-ranked 4×400 relay (3:46.59c/3:49.59) that ran a season best.

Azusa Pacific slid one spot from No. 2 in Week 3 to No. 3 in Week 4. The Cougars had three new or improved top-10 efforts this past weekend at the Gorilla Classic. Jaylah Walker accounts for two of those performances, as she is ranked third in the 60 at 8.48 and sixth in the 200 at 24.31. Joining Walker in the 200 rankings is Mechaela Hyacynth after clocking 24.50 to move to No. 10 on the Descending Order List.

West Texas A&M maintained their No. 4 billing and was one of two teams to hold steady in Week 4. The Lady Buffs hold seven national top-10 marks and had an improved mark this past weekend from Leah Belfield. She clocked the fourth-best 200 of the season with her 24.24c (24.17A) effort at the Texas Tech Shootout.

Pittsburg State fell two spots to No. 5 to round out the top- this week. The Gorillas picked up four new or improved top-10 marks at the Gorilla Classic, with one of them being a national-leading performance from Christine Williams in the 200 at 24.07. Isabelle Peters had a season best clearance in the pole vault of 4.16m (13-7¾), which is ranked No. 2 on the DII performance list. Not to be outdone, Trace Mosby had a hand in two of those new national performances after running the fifth-best time in the 60H (8.50) and contributing to the seventh-ranked 4×400 that clocked 3:46.73.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Adams State (up two spots), No. 7 Indianapolis (down one spot), No. 8 CSU Pueblo (up two spots), No. 9 UC-Colorado Springs (down two spots) and No. 10 Central Missouri (up four spots). The Greyhounds’s Berenice Cleyet-Merle clocked 4:31.99 in the mile at Boston to shatter the NCAA DII record.

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!
