Azusa Pacific jumped two spots into the No. 1 position after capturing their sixth-consecutive team title at the PacWest Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The Cougars added six new or improved national top-5 marks to its ledger. Jaylah Walker paced the team with two individual efforts, as she took over the national lead in the 100H (13.38) and improved her position at No. 3 in the 400H (58.79). Other top performers for Azusa Pacific were Mechaela Hyacinth in the 100 (No. 2, 11.34), Alayna Verner in the 400 (No. 5, 54.07) and Jordan Hammond in the 400H (No. 5, 59.37). The Cougars’ 4×100 relay also clocked 44.93 to move to No. 4 on the Descending Order List.

West Texas A&M and Grand Valley State fell to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, to no fault of their own. Both teams are gearing up for their respective conference championships this weekend: the Lady Buffs will compete at the Lone Star Outdoor Track & Field Championships; the Lakers will host the GLIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Fresno Pacific improved one spot to No. 4 after turning in eight new or improved national top-10 marks at the PacWest Championships, in which the Sunbirds finished second in the team standings. No one was better than Kyla Richardson, who won the 100 (11.31) and 200 (23.12) and took over the national lead in those events, in addition to running on the victorious 4×100 relay that ran 44.92 for the No. 3 time this season. The 400 was also a strong event for the Sunbirds with Danae Manibog (No. 3, 53.63) and Madison Flores (No. 4, 53.90) posting national top-5 performances.

Minnesota State dropped one spot to No. 5 due to the climb by Fresno Pacific. The Mavericks added one new or improved national top-10 mark from their weekend at the Drake Relays. Amanda Montplaisir clocked 10:34.87 in the steeplechase to move to No. 9 on the Descending Order List.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 6: No. 6 Adams State (unchanged), No. 7 Texas A&M-Commerce (up one spot), No. 8 Academy of Art (up two spots), No. 9 Pittsburg State (down two spots) and No. 10 UC-Colorado Springs (up seven spots). The Mountain Lions are back in the top-10 for the first time since Week 1 after adding three new or improved national top-10 marks at the RMAC Championships, led by Hannah Meek’s 6.58m (21-7¼) in the long jump to move up to No. 2.

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!
