19. Liz Bloch | Michigan Tech (SR) (0 / 19)

It was a tale of two races from Bloch this weekend at the Hillsdale GINA Relays. She took a step back in the 1500, running a 4:28.65 which is four seconds off her breakout race she had at Bucknell. Bloch did, however, win the 800 running a PR of 2:10.36. The inconsistency makes it very difficult to predict how Bloch will finish as the season comes to a close.


18. Bailey Sharon | Western Colorado (SO) (-1 / 17)

Sharon had a very solid weekend at the RMAC Championships this weekend. She finished 2nd in the 800, only behind defending national champion Skylyn Webb, and she also helped her 4x4 team to a 3rd place finish.

14. Andra Lehotay | Walsh (JR) (-1 / 13)

I am not really sure what has happened to Lehotay last weekend. She ran a 2:17.61 in the 800 this weekend, which is seven seconds off of her PR. Her past two races have been wildly underwhelming, so we will see if it is just a rough few weeks or a sign of how her season is going to finish.


13. Kristen Metcalfe | Embry-Riddle (SR) (Unranked)

It took a while for Metcalfe to open the season, but she looked pretty decent as she did so two weeks ago, winning the 800 and 1500 at the Peach Belt Championships. This past weekend she looked like she was getting back into national title contention form as she ran a season best in both the 800 and 1500, running 2:09.59 and 4:25.56, respectively. It is good to see Metcalfe starting to get back into top fitness as the season starts to wind down.

3. Skylyn Webb | UC Colorado-Springs (SR) (0 / 3)

Big surprise, Skylyn Webb dominated the RMAC Championships this weekend. Even though the times were not all that fast, she took easy wins in both the 800 and 1500. Opinions have not changed, Webb is still the favorite to defend her 800 crown.
