The Men of Oregon are going into this weekend's NCAA Indoor Championships at the top of the pack. On Monday, the Ducks were ranked No. 1 in the nation in the USTFCCA poll, beating out Arkansas for the top spot.

On the women's side, the Ducks will be ranked No. 2 in the nation, just behind the Florida Gators.

Between the two sides, Oregon will be sending 26 athletes to this week's national championship meet in Birmingham, Alabama. There will be 10 men and 16 women from Oregon, and the 16 entries on the women's side are the most for any school this year.\

Edward Cheserek will lead the charge on the men's side for Oregon, heading into the meet with the nation's top marks in the 3,000 and 5,000. Raevyn Rogers has the nation's top time in the 800 among women while Jasmine Todd and Hannah Cunliffe both have top five marks in the 60 meter dash.
