Grand Valley State maintains its No. 1 billing for a second straight week. The Lakers had two athletes improve their season bests at the Spartan Invitational to move them up the Descending Order List. Eli Kosiba improved to No. 5 in the high jump with his 2.11m (6-11) clearance. Jacob Urban sits at No. 4 with his 60.15m (197-4) heave in the hammer throw.

West Texas A&M also held steady at No. 2 in Week 2. The Buffs added two new national top-10 efforts to their haul at the Masked Rider Open: Jeremiah Lauzon clocked the seventh-best time in the 100 with a windy 10.39/(10.36A); Jahmaal Wilson is ranked No. 4 in the 110H with a windy 14.03/(13.99A).

Texas A&M-Commerce ascended one spot to No. 3 in Week 2. The Lions gained nine new or improved national top-10 efforts at the David Noble Relays, including two national leaders: Moaz Ibrahim in the discus with a heave of 56.33m (184-10); the Lions’ 4×100 relay clocking 39.40. J.T. Smith and Delan Edwin, two staples on the Lions’ top-ranked relay, improved to No. 2 and No. 6 in the 100, respectively. Texas A&M-Commerce also has three of the top-5 high jumpers in the country, as Justin Lewis (No. 2) and Dakari Hill (No. 5) join top-ranked Ushan Perera on the chart.

Adams State climbed five spots from No. 9 to No. 4. Five out of the six new or improved national top-10 performances the Grizzlies picked up at the Maverick Invite came in the 1500. Miguel Coca leads the Grizzlies’ quintuple with his national-leading time of 3:41.66c/(3:46.10A), followed by James Dunne in third, David Cardenas in seventh, Andrew O’Keefe in eighth and Alec Hall at No. 10 on the Descending Order List.

Pittsburg State held steady at No. 5 to round out the top-5 teams. The Gorillas picked up five new or improved national top-10 performances at the David Noble Relays, led by Louis Rollins’ national lead of 13.56 in the 110H to move to No. 4 on the NCAA DII all-time chart. Rollins also moved to No. 3 on the Descending Order List in the 100 with a windy 10.30 and as part of the third-ranked 4×100 relay. In the field events, Christian Carter (long jump) and Caleb Calvin (javelin) notched top-8 efforts.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 CSU Pueblo, No. 7 Angelo State, No. 8 Colorado School of Mines, No. 9 Queens (N.C.) and No. 10 Central Missouri.
