Washington (Mo.) jumped three spots from No. 4 to the top of the National TFRI in Week 2. The Bears fill the NCAA DIII Descending Order List with 15 national top-10 marks, including a pair of national leaders: Ebunoluwa Opata headlines the triple jump with an effort of 12.29m (40-4); WashU’s 4×400 relay lords that list with its 3:50.20 clocking from this past weekend.

George Fox dropped one spot to No. 2 to no fault of its own. The Bruins own 10 national top-10 marks, including two national leaders in the guise of Bethany Schmidt in the 400-meter hurdles (1:01.08) and Chrissy Strickland in the javelin (43.65m/143-3). Schmidt clocked her national-leading mark in the event this past weekend and sits seventh in the open 400.

Wartburg charged five spots from No. 8 to No. 3 between Week 1 and Week 2. The Knights captured eight national top-10 marks so far this season, of which four came from competition this past weekend. Aubrie Fisher is the highest-ranked athlete on the list with her national-leading 10:32.27 in the steeplechase. Wartburg’s 4×400 relay is ranked second nationally.

Loras remained unchanged at No. 4. The Duhawks either added or improved all of their marks in the National TFRI from Week 1, as seven top-10 performances dot the Descending Order List. No mark holds more weight than Kassie Parker’s NCAA DIII-record 33:03.61 in the 10,000 meters from the Stanford Invitational this past weekend, where she finished fourth.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps fell two spots from No. 3 to No. 5. The Athenas hauled in six national top-10 marks, including a pair of second-ranked efforts this past weekend: Caroline Delvecchio in the 400H (1:02.32) and Brooke Simon the pole vault (3.85m/12-7½).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 2: No. 6 Gustavus Adolphus (up 10 spots), No. 7 Nebraska Wesleyan, No. 8 Middlebury (down six spots), No. 9 Williams (up 23 spots) and No. 10 Johns Hopkins (down one spot). The Golden Gusties might only have five national top-10 marks, but all of them are in the top-5 and two top the Descending Order List.

Mark your calendars for May 26-28, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio!
