COLLEGIATE WOMEN’S DUAL MEET RANKINGS
Oregon Wins The National Title

compiled by Jesse Squire
(May 5, 2014)

The Oregon Ducks had just one dual meet on their schedule, but it was a good one, a 106-52 pasting of Arizona. Robert Johnson's squad's breadth and depth of marks was by far the best in the NCAA, and it helped that the team that they lapped ended up #4 in the rankings.

Oregon has now finished Nos. 1/3/1 in the three years since the dual meet rankings were revived.

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.
