British Columbia remains at the top of the rankings for the fourth week in a row. The Thunderbirds didn’t record any new top-10 marks as their team total sits at 10. They’re led by the three national-leading marks of Dylan Uhrich (steeple, 8:57.17), Tyler Dozzi (5000, 13:57.14) and Rowan Hamilton (hammer, 73.66m/241-8). British Columbia receives three of their top-10 marks from 5000-meter race walk.

Southeastern (Fla.) continues to hold the No. 2 spot, fresh off capturing their third consecutive Sun Conference team title. Five top-10 marks were recorded over the weekend to bring the team total to 12. In the 100, James Williamson III finished second with the No. 10 time of 10.41. In the 110-meter hurdles, Glenn Rodgers and Davonte Vanterpool finished second and fourth, respectively, with the No. 2 (14.00) and No. 4 (14.11) fastest times in NAIA. Joseph Taylor recorded the No. 3 200 (20.86) after a runner-up finish. Taylor had a busy weekend helping the Fire capture the 4×100 and 4×400 titles, along with top-5 finishes in the 100 and long jump. The last new mark recorded was by Zachary Nichols who won the javelin with a throw of 59.38m (194-10). He also won the hammer.

The Master’s (Calif.) moved up one spot to No. 3, despite not competing last week. The Mustangs have seven top-10 efforts led by Wesley Methum’s No. 1 10,000-meter effort. Davis Boggess has two top-10 efforts in the 1500 and 5000 and is a member of the No. 3 4×800 relay. The Mustangs are set to compete at the GSAC Championships this weekend.

Saint Mary (Kan.) dropped one spot to No. 4. The Spires have eight top-10 efforts after losing a pair of top-10 marks. Luke Skinner continues to have Saint Mary’s highest-ranked mark with the No. 2 5000 (14:10.30). Saint Mary travels up to the Des Moines, Iowa, this week for the Drake Relays.

Keiser (Fla.) rejoins the top-5, coming in at the No. 5 spot. The Seahawks finished second at the Sun Conference Outdoor Championships. Vindero Lightfoot picked up a pair of top-10 marks, winning the 400 with the No. 7 time of 47.21 and a fourth-place finish in the 200 (No. 6, 21.03.). He also helped the Seahawks finish runner-up in the 4×400 (No. 6, 3:14.93). Melvin Johnson finishing third in the 200 with the No. 5 time of 20.93. Charles McCord took home two titles with two top-10 efforts in the long jump (No. 7, 7.25m/23-9½) and triple jump (14.65mw/48-¾). Keiser has a total of nine top-10 marks.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Indiana Tech, No. 7 Life (Ga.), No. 8 Montreat (N.C.), No. 9 Grace (Ind.) and No. 10 Taylor (Ind.).
