Iowa Western CC remains No. 1, increasing its lead to largest any team has had this year. The Reivers lead three events – down from last week’s six – but still have seven in the top-2 and increased its number of top-10 marks to a season-high 25. Iowa Western is looking to match its win at the NJCAA Indoor Championships in March. Hilda Chebet leads the Reivers, pacing the nation in two events (1500 at 4:30.19, 5000 at 16:42.91). Miracle Ailes leads the high jump (1.81m/5-11 ¼), an event where the Reivers go 1-2 with Alliyah McNeil following.

Barton (Kan.) CC remains No. 2 and also compiled a season-best 26 top-10 marks, with 17 in the top-5 (most in the nation). The Cougars doubled their number of national leaders to four – Ashantae Harvey (400, 53.15), Lashanna Graham (400 hurdles, 59.14), Nia Robinson (long jump, 6.36mw/20-10½w) and current National Athlete of the Week Kelsie Murrell-Ross (shot put, 16.00m/52-6). All four of Barton’s national-leading marks came from the recent weekend.

New Mexico JC continues at No. 3 despite tripling its number of national leaders to three and improving to 26 top-10 marks, tied for most in the nation. T-Birds who lead the nation are Deshana Skeete (200 at 23.56w), Kimeone McLeod (100 hurdles at 13.29w) and Damaris Chewon (10,000 at 36:33.60).

Defending champion South Plains (Texas) is No. 4. The Texans have 17 top-10 marks and three national leaders – Success Umukoro (100 at 11.45w), Joniar Thomas (heptathlon at 5256) and the 4×400 relay (3:41.67).

Remaining No. 5 for the fourth-straight week is Cloud County (Kan.) CC. The T-Birds improved to having 18 top-10 marks, two which lead the nation – Jessi Brummett in the javelin (43.70m/143-5) and the 4×800 relay team (9:22.84).

Rounding out the top-10 teams in the national TFRI are No. 6 Central Arizona, No. 7 Indian Hills (Iowa) CC, No. 8 Mesa (Ariz.) CC, No. 9 Monroe-New Rochelle (N.Y.) and No. 10 Highland (Kan.) CC.

The 2022 NJCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships are just three weeks away, for scheduled May 19-21 at Hutchinson (Kan.) CC’s Gowans Stadium in Hutchinson, Kansas.
