Minnesota State continued to sit atop the National Rating Index and deservingly so. The Mavericks have 11 national top-10 performances on the season, and seven of them are new and improved from the NSIC Championships. Denisha Cartwright has a hand in three of those as she took over the national lead with her PR of 8.23 in the 60H which makes her the No. 10 performer in DII history, is ranked second in the 200 (23.85c/24.22) and third in the 60 (7.36). Makayla Jackson also shined for the Mavericks at the conference championships, running the nation’s fastest 60 of 7.32 and the ninth-best 200 of 24.17c (24.54). That 7.32 moves Jackson to No. 7 in DII history. In the throws, Katie Taylor has the season’s second-farthest weight throw at 20.21m (66-3¾).

Grand Valley State stayed steady at No. 2 in Week 6. The Lakers picked up three new or improved marks that sit among the top-10 of the Descending Order List. Jessica Gockley has a pair of No. 6 performances in the 3000 (9:23.65) and 5000 (16:29.42). Emma Richards also improved her season best in the shot put with a heave of 15.42m (50-7¼).

Adams State climbed three spots from No. 6 in Week 5 to No. 3 in Week 6. The Grizzlies turned in three big efforts this past weekend that gave them the boost into the top-5, headlined by their national-leading DMR that ran 11:30.01c (11:59.29A). The other two performances came in the 3000, as Brianna Robles and Morgan Hykes are now ranked No. 2  and No. 4, respectively.

West Texas A&M held on to the No. 4 spot. The Lady Buffs were headlined by Taylor Nellom’s improved national lead in the triple jump after bounding 13.18m (43-3). She also moved to No. 10 in the long jump following a season best 5.95m (19-6¼). Leah Belfield also shined for the Lady Buffs at the LSC Championships, winning both the 60 (7.44c/7.42A) and 200 (24.02c/23.95A) with efforts that rank No. 5 on the Descending Order List.

Pittsburg State also remained put at No. 5 to round out our top teams. The Gorillas had three new or improved marks that rank among the nation’s best. Christine Williams bettered her national lead in the 200 after clocking 23.73 at the MIAA Championships to win the event title. Kyla Davis moved to No. 2 in the pole vault with her clearance of 4.16m (13-7¾) and Blakelee Winn turned in the fifth-best pentathlon score of 3850.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 6: No. 6 Azusa Pacific, No. 7 Academy of Art, No. 8 Central Missouri, No. 9 Indianapolis 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!
