2022 NCAA DII Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 2

NEW ORLEANS – Change is inevitable.

Here is the second installment of the 2022 NCAA Division II Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday. Only marks from the current season are being used, which gives a comprehensive, objective look at which teams have stood out in the early goings.

Only two teams in the top-5 held steady, with the rest of the top-25 finding a new home.

West Texas A&M held down the top spot for a second straight week. The Lady Buffs hold ten national top-10 performances and maintain a grip on five national leading efforts: Leah Belfield in the 100; Eleonora Curtabbi in the steeplechase; Zada Swoopes in the shot put and discus; the Lady Buffs’ 4×100 relay.

Grand Valley State improved one spot to No. 2 in Week 2. The Lakers shined in the field events at the Spartan Invitational and gained four national top-10 performances. Ellianne Kimes soared to the national lead in the pole vault with the season’s best clearance of 4.17m (13-8¼), while teammate Kassidie Stimmel moved to seventh on the Descending Order List. In the throwing events, Emma Richards picked up a pair of top-8 efforts in the discus and the shot put.

Azusa Pacific fell one spot to No. 3 by no fault of its own. The Cougars picked up a trio of new or improved national top-10 marks at the Vince O’Boyle Track & Field Classic, paced by the 4×400 relay clocking the nation’s fifth-best time of 3:45.85. Jordan Hammond, who toted the baton on that relay, also moved to No. 8 on the Descending Order List in the 400H, while Mechaela Hyacinth clocked the season’s seventh-best time in the 100.

Fresno Pacific didn’t budge from its No. 4 billing. The Sunbirds picked up six new or improved national top-10 performances. Four of those come from the 400 alone, led by Danae Manibog’s national leader of 53.91. Joining Manibog on the Descending Order List is second-ranked Madison Flores (54.51), fifth-ranked Chloe Sharp (54.88) and eighth-ranked Kyla Richardson (55.14). A pair of No. 9 performances are contributed by Flores in the 200 and Gianna Dickson in the 400H.

Angelo State jumped five spots to round out the top-5 in Week 2. The Rams gained eight new or improved national top-10 performances from their weekend hosting the David Noble Relay, including two top-3 efforts in the heptathlon: Maricia Spence is the national leader with 5371 points; Abby Zamzow is ranked third with 489 points. Antonija Radic is credited with two of those highly-ranked national marks as she sits third in the triple jump and sixth in the long jump, while Sara Ramos and Jennifer Batu are ranked No. 5 and No. 10 in the hammer, respectively.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Adams State, No. 7 Cal Poly Pomona, No. 8 Queens (N.C.), No. 9 Texas A&M-Commerce and No. 10 Minnesota State.

Mark your calendars for May 26-28, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at Grand Valley State in Allendale, Michigan!
