Azusa Pacific is the top-ranked team in the National TFRI for the third-consecutive week. The Cougars padded their season resume by adding four new or improved national top-10 marks at the APU Last Chance. Jennifer Sandoval had a hand in two of those efforts, moving to No. 6 in the 5000 (16:07.06) and No. 8 in the 1500 (4:22.28). Chinenye Agina had a season best clearance of 1.77m (5-9¾) in the high jump to move to No. 5, while the Cougars’ 4×400 relay ran the season’s fourth-best time (3:40.58).

West Texas A&M improved one spot to No. 2 in Week 8. The Lady Buffs gained one improved national top-5 effort during the WT Last Chance Meet. DeOndra Green ran a season best 23.45 in the 200 to move to No. 5 on the Descending Order List.

Grand Valley State fell one spot to No. 3 by no fault of its own. The Lakers picked up two new or improved national top-5 efforts between various last chance meets: Hannah Becker ran to the No. 3 position in the steeplechase following a 10:18.31 effort at the Lee University Last Chance; Erika Beistle is now No. 4 in the discus (51.49m/168-11) from her effort at the GVSU 10 Event-Last Chance.

Minnesota State bolstered its spot at No. 4 after capturing the program’s first NSIC title since 2016. The Mavericks added two new or improved national top-10 efforts at the meet, including a chart-topping performance from Denisha Cartwright in the 100H of 13.28. Taylor Elliott also improved to No. 9 in the high jump with a clearance of 1.74m (5-8½).

Adams State climbed one spot to No. 5 for a season-best ranking. The boost for the Grizzlies came from Roisin Flanagan, who moved to No. 2 on the yearly leaderboard in the 1500.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 8: No. 6 Fresno Pacific (down one spot), No. 7 Pittsburg State (unchanged), No. 8 Lincoln (Mo.) (up one spot), No. 9 Texas A&M-Commerce (down one spot) and No. 10 Academy of Art (up one spot). The top performance of the bunch came from Marie-Jeanne Ourega of Academy of Art, who soared to No. 4 on the NCAA DII all-time chart in the long jump with a wind-legal 6.58m (21-7¼).

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!
