British Columbia continues to hold the No. 1 spot during Week 4. The Thunderbirds have not slowed down, performing at a high level each week. While they lost two national-leading marks over the weekend, they made up for it and gained two national leads. Both occurred at the Bryan Clay Invitational where Holly MacGillivray ran the No. 1 1500 (4:23.74) and Kyla Becker ran the No. 1 10,000 (35:40.26). MacGillivray doubled down and ran the 800 as well to finish with the No. 4 time of 2:12.60. At the Beach Invitational three new top-10 marks were recorded led by Jenna Melanson’s No. 2 steeple (10:29.62). Jamie Hennessey ran the No. 7 1500 (4:36.07) and Hassy Fashina Bombata recorded the No. 8 110H (14:26). British Columbia currently has 22 top-10 efforts.

Indiana Tech moved up six spots to rejoin the top-5 for the first time since Week 1. The Warriors had a big week, recording eight new top-10 marks to bring their team total to 17. Lisa Voyles finished first in the 800 at the Tiffin Track Carnival with a No. 1 time of 2:09.42. She also anchored the Warriors to a win and new No. 2 in the 4×800 (9:18.85). Soyinne Grenyion and Shalonda Terry finished first and third in the 100, running the No. 6 and No. 9 fastest times. In the high jump, Erica Xayarath cleared 1.68m (5-6) for the second-best mark in the nation. Earlier in the week the Warriors had Xuxa Peart and Destinee McGrady finish first and second in the 400 at their home meet, running 55.15 (No. 3) and 55.68 (No. 7), respectively.

William Carey (Miss.) dropped one spot to No. 3 after not competing last week. The Crusaders have four national-leading marks and four No. 2 marks that headline their 10 top-10 efforts. Sisters Brittany and Nevagant Jones continue to lead the nation in the long jump and triple jump, while Joy Abu leads NAIA in both the 100H and 400H. Abu’s resume doesn’t stop there, she’s also No. 2 in the open 400 and runs on the No. 2 4×100 team. Fredricka McKenzie (No. 2, 100) and Salieci Myles (No. 2, 100H) own the other two No. 2 efforts.

Concordia (Neb.) moved back one spot to No. 4. The Bulldogs competed at the Loper Invitational over the weekend and earned two new top-10 marks. Morgan De Jong threw 53.75m (176-4) in the hammer, bumping her up to fifth-best in the nation. Jordan Koepke earned the other new mark after running 1:02.82 (No. 7) in the 400H. In the pole vault, both Josie Pulz and Erin Mapson tied their season bests of 4.10m (13-5¾) and 3.65m (11-11¾) and are ranked first and sixth in the nation, respectively. Concordia exited the weekend with nine top-10 marks.

Life (Ga.) enters the top-5 for the first time this season, jumping six spots to come in at No. 5 for Week 4. The Running Eagles have 10 top-10 marks, with several of them being recorded last weekend at the Kennesaw State Invitational. Iantha Wright helped Life earn three new marks in the 100 (No. 5, 11.79), 200 (No. 3, 23.69) and 4×100 (No.6, 47.02). Brianna Florvilus and Breanna Pratt were also part of the 4×100 and ran the No. 3 and No. 8 400, respectively. Taylor Ward has the Running Eagles only national-leading mark with her half marathon time of 1:23:30.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 4: No. 6 Marian (Ind.), No. 7 Southern Oregon, No. 8 Southeastern (Fla.), No. 9 Aquinas (Mich.) and No. 10 Vanguard (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.
