Oregon drubbed Arizona 115-47 to climb 4 spots up to #3.

Rankings reflect a combined indoor/outdoor season, but with a heavier emphasis on outdoor competition. To be ranked, a team must compete in one or more dual meets (defined as a scored meet between four or fewer teams). Teams are ranked on wins and losses, marks, and strength and depth of dual meet schedule. Teams are rewarded for taking dual meet competition seriously.
This week's regional rankings were released yesterday at DailyRelay.com.
