The Ashland University track and field program is getting high marks for yet another week, as the Eagle men (second) and women (eighth) once again are in the Top 8 of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division II National Team Computer Rankings.

Ashland's men have been either first or second in the poll in four of the last five weeks. It is their best five-week stretch this decade.

The Eagle women maintain their spot in eighth place, and have been in the Top 10 for five weeks in a row.

Ashland's program is one of three in Division II (Saint Augustine's and Pittsburg State) to have both its men's and women's teams in the Top 8.
