Indiana Tech maintained its No. 1 lead in the TFRI and enters the NAIA Championships with leaders in three events – 1000 meters (Lisa Voyles at 2:49.28), 3000-meter racewalk (Loanie Cellard at 14:09.32) and high jump (Juanita Webster-Freeman at 1.72m/5-7¾). Voyles and Cellard both won titles last year – Voyles while at Cumberlands (Ky.). The Warriors dominated last year’s competition with a 48-point victory.

Hastings (Neb.) remained No. 3. Lauren Tamayo scored in both the pentathlon and 60 hurdles last year for the Broncos – her best ranking this year is in the high jump (No. 2 at 1.71/5-7 ¼). She won the heptathlon outdoors last May.

Up one spot to No. 4 is William Carey (Miss), just two notches below its runner-up position at last year’s NAIA Indoor Championships. The Crusaders are led by Brittany Jones, the nation’s best in the long jump (6.01m/19-8¾) and triple jump (12.71m/41-8½), as well as Selieci Myles, tops in the 60 hurdles at 8.44. Jones won both events last year.

Also moving up is Marian (Ind.) to No. 5. The Knights have the nation’s top shot putter in Arriana Benjamin at 14.72m/48-3½.

Completing the top-10 teams are No. 6 St. Francis (Ill.), No. 7 Life (Ga.), No. 8 Dordt (Iowa), No. 9 Taylor (Ind.) and No. 10 Doane (Neb.).
