NEW ORLEANS – With two weekends between now and the NJCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field National Championships, shifts in the top-five of the National Team Rankings – announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Wednesday – paint a better picture of what to expect heading into El Dorado, Kansas.

South Plains (Texas) remains the team to beat in the men's rankings, but Cloud County (Kan.) CC made some noise this week, moving up to third. On the women's side of things, New Mexico JC and Central Arizona continue to tango, as the two teams swapped places for first and second, respectively, for the second-straight week.

The NJCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field National Championships will be held on May 17-19 in El Dorado, Kansas.

MEN'S STORY

South Plains (Texas) managed to put more distance between itself and second-place Barton (Kan.) CC this past week, despite not competing over the weekend. The Texans gained 9.9 points in the Computer Rankings, giving them a whopping total of 814.23 to Barton (Kan.) CC's 658.07. The Cougars also had the weekend off.

However, Cloud County (Kan.) CC took advantage of the Southwestern College Relays as an opportunity to improve, and it did. The T-Birds added two top-10 NJCAA Division I Descending Order List marks at the meet by Thobile Mosito (10,000) and Vashon McCarthy (discus). The third-place ranking ties a program-best, as it also ranked third during the first week of the 2015 season.

Iowa Central CC and Central Arizona rounded out the top-five, sitting in fourth and fifth, respectively. Iowa Central CC tumbled one spot from a week ago.

Coffeyville (Kan.) CC also made a slight advancement in the rankings outside of the top-five, moving up one spot to sixth, returning to where it had been ranked during the first and second week of this season.

WOMEN'S STORY

New Mexico JC and Central Arizona have made things incredibly interesting in the women's rankings, as only 28.42 points separate the two in the Computer Rankings. The pole positioning took place despite the fact neither squad competed over the weekend.

South Plains (Texas), Iowa Central CC and Barton (Kan.) CC sat in third, fourth and fifth, respectively, once again.

While the Texans and Cougars had the weekend off, the Tritons nabbed a couple of NJCAA Division I Descending Order List-leading marks in two events. Adva Cohencontinued her outstanding freshman season by winning the steeplechase at the prestigious Drake Relays with the top time in NJCAA Division I at 9:52.37, while a quartet of Tritons ran a 9:12.01 in the 4×800 relay.

Teams six through 10 in the women's rankings also went unchanged over the course of the week.
