Texas, Texas A&M and Florida remained put at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. While the Longhorns and Gators did not earn any new national top-10 marks over the weekend, the second-ranked Aggies gained a new national top-10 performance at the 44 Farms Team Invitational as Laila Owens clocked the ninth-fastest time in the 400 of 52.40. Watch out for potential changes next week following several big meets: Texas will compete at the Mt. SAC Relays and Brian Clay Invitational; Texas A&M and Florida are scheduled to compete at the Tom Jones Memorial, hosted by the Gators.

Kentucky improved two spots from No. 6 in Week 2 to No. 4 in Week 3. Abby Steiner stole the show at the Joy May Invitational to lead the Wildcats. She first equaled the No. 5 performer in collegiate history in the 100 with her 10.92 to move to No. 3 on the Descending Order List, then came back to take over the national lead in the 200 after registering a 22.38 into a 5.6m/s headwind. Masai Russell also gave Kentucky a top-5 performance with her 12.75 showing in the 100H, while Russell and Steiner helped their 4×100 relay clock 42.46 for the nation’s second-fastest time.

LSU rounds out the top-5 after a four spot jump from No. 9 to No. 5 this week. The Tigers hauled in six new or improved national top-10 performances at home during the Joe May Invitational. The top individual performance came from Favour Ofili with her 11.00 in the 100 to move to No. 4 on the Descending Order List. Ofili was also part of the Tigers’ third-ranked 4×100 relay (42.69) and sixth-ranked 4×400 relay (3:29.88). In the high jump, the trio of Morgan Smalls, Nyagoa Bayak and Abigail O’Donoghue all cleared 1.83m (6-0) to move into a tie at No. 10 on the national list.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 3: No. 6 Arkansas (down one spot), No. 7 Texas Tech (down three spots), No. 8 BYU (up two spots), No. 9 Baylor (down two spots) and No. 10 Oregon (down two spots). The Cougars picked up a pair of new top-10 marks in the 800 from Claire Seymour (No. 4, 2:03.70) and Lauren Ellsworth (No. 8, 2:04.53) at the Sun Angel Classic, while Ashton Riner improved to No. 8 in the javelin (54.58m/179-1).

Mark your calendars for June 8-11, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon!
