The University of Oregon's NCAA Women's Indoor Track and Field Championship from earlier this month catapulted the Ducks into the top 20 in the latest Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standings.
The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup measures an accumulation of national finishes in 20 men's and women's sports, and is a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today.
Oregon stands in 19th place among the 222 Division I schools that have tallied points in 15 sports with 317 points. The women's indoor track team's 100 points, along with 37 points contributed by the Ducks' men's indoor track squad, provided the school with 137 points from this winter.
Oregon garnered 180 points last fall in the sports of football, women's cross country and women's volleyball.
In addition to their top-20 showing, the Ducks currently rank third among all Pac-12
Stanford remains in first place in the latest Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standings with 648.75 points, while Florida State is in second with 518.00 total points.
