After a strong showing at the Mt. SAC relays this past weekend, the women of Oregon track & field climbed three spots in the latest U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association rankings, landing at No. 1 in the nation.

Hannah Cunliffe led the charge for the Ducks at Mt. SAC, running a personal-best time of 22.71 seconds in the 200 while helping Oregon's 4x100 meter relay team clock the third-fastest time (42.68) in collegiate history.

This marks the first time since Week 9 of the 2015 season that the Oregon women top the rankings. Here's how the top five currently looks:
