British Columbia held steady at No. 1 for the second week in a row. The Thunderbirds are rolling with 18 top-10 marks, leading the NAIA in four events. Zoe Doorenspleet (No. 1, 5000) and Olivia Lundman (No. 1, 5000-meter race walk) are still No. 1 in their respective event and have three other Thunderbirds behind them ranked in the top-10 in both events. Hailey Kjaer kept her spot at No. 1 in the javelin, as she leads a trio of ranked Thunderbirds in the event. Jamie Hennessey (No.1, steeple) is the fourth athlete to hold her No. 1 spot.

William Carey (Miss.) remained at No. 2 with 12 top-10 marks. Brittany Jones added the No. 7 triple jump (11.82m/38-9½) to her resume at the UAB Green and Gold Invite. She also leads the nation in the long jump and now joins her sister Nevagant Jones (No. 1, 12.45m/10¼) on the top-10 triple jump list. Joy Abu still leads the nation in the 100H and 400H and is a member of the No. 1 4×100 team, giving the Crusaders five national leading marks.

Concordia (Neb.) is entrenched at No. 3 after last week’s big jump into the top-5. Over the weekend at their home meet, the 4×800 relay squad of Rylee Haecker, Kylahn Heritage, Jenna Esch and Keri Bauer ran the No. 1 time of 9:18.80. The 4×400 also achieved a new mark running the nation’s fourth-ranked time of 3:53.07. After this past weekend, the Bulldogs have eight top-10 efforts.

Vanguard (Calif.)  jumped five spots to No. 4, making their debut in the top-5. The Lions have nine top-10 efforts and recorded seven of the nine this past weekend at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational. In the 200, Eryn Burke and Armiyah Johnson ran the No. 7 and No. 10 times respectively. Burke also ran the 400, winning with the No. 3 time of 55.89 and teammate Brooke Dalgity ran the fifth-best time (55.89). Burke, Dalgity and Johnson along with Dorothy Jackson, were all part of the 4×100 team that recorded the nation’s second-best time of 46.24. In the 400H, Jordyn Burke finished second (No. 4, 1:02.87) and Julianna Holm added the No. 7 high jump (1.65m/5-5) to cap off the Lions incredible weekend.

Southern Oregon rounds out the top-5, staying put at No. 5 for the second straight week. There were no new top-10 marks recorded by the Raiders as they have seven top-10 efforts. Abi Stevens still leads the nation in high jump (1.72m/5-7¾). She’s also ranked third-nationally in the heptathlon. Both of the relay teams are ranked in the top-10 with the 4×100 coming in at No. 6 (47.30) and the 4×400 team at No. 3 (3:50.92).

Here are the remaining top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Southeastern (Fla.), No. 7 Friends (Kan.), No. 8 Indiana Tech, No. 9 Marian (Ind.) and No. 10 The Master’s (Calif.).

Mark your calendars for May 25-27, as that’s when the 2022 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held once again in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
