NEW ORLEANS – There was action on the NJCAA Division I outdoor track & field circuit this past weekend, but it did not greatly affect the newest round of National Team Rankings, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Wednesday.

Central Arizona did supplant New Mexico JC for the top spot in the women's rankings, but the remainder of the top-10 stayed in place from a week ago. On the men's side, the top-six teams held their ground from last week's rankings. 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) remains the team to beat in the men's rankings, as the Texans came in at first for the fourth-straight week. Mason Weh led the Texans this past weekend at the West Texas A&M Invitational, where he notched a 13.61 (converted to 13.65 for altitude) in the 110 hurdles, putting him in second on the NJCAA Division I Descending Order List.

Barton (Kan.) CC competed at the John Jacobs Invitational where the team notched one top-20 NJCAA Division I Descending Order List mark. That was good enough to keep the squad in second in the rankings.

Iowa Central CCCloud County (Kan.) CC and Central Arizona rounded out the top-five.

WOMEN'S STORY

Central Arizona moved into first place for the first time since week one of the 2017 season after a big weekend at the Bryan Clay Invitational. The Vaqueros hit five top-10 NJCAA Division I Descending Order List marks at the competition, including the second-best marks in the 400 hurdles by Nicolee Foster, 4×400 relay and the heptathlon by Regina Yeboah.

New Mexico JC also had a strong weekend, but still fell one spot in the rankings. The Thunderbirds dominated the 200 at the West Texas A&M Invitational, where D'Jai BakerShian Hyde and Raheema Westfall notched the second, third and fifth-best times in NJCAA Division I this year, respectively.

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