NEW ORLEANS — With all of the major conference championships in the books, a clearer picture is beginning to emerge in terms of who reigns supreme when it comes to women’s track & field at the NCAA Division I level.

Once again, that team is Oregon, and that’s because Deajah (Stevens) said so.

The newest NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Team Rankings were announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday, and after a three-week hiatus, Oregon’s women sit in the drivers seat.

The Ducks won the Pac-12 Championships this past weekend by a whopping 54 points thanks in large part a historic performance from Stevens. Once the dust settled after the weekend, Oregon gained almost 61 points in the computer rankings to lead 2nd-ranked Arkansas by 89 points.

Stevens was unstoppable in Eugene, Oregon, this past weekend, winning the 100 meter and 200 meter races while also helping the Ducks win the 4×100 relay. Stevens’ 22.09 finish in the 200 meters was not only the fastest time in the nation this year, but also ranks 2nd in outdoor collegiate history, behind only Dawn Sowell’s performance of 22.04 from May 2, 1989.

Hannah Cunliffe also added the 9th-best time in the country this year in the 100 meters with a mark of 11.11, while Elexis Guster (51.32) and Makenzie Dunmore (51.67) notched the 4th and 8th-best marks in the 400 meters this year, respectively.

The Lady Razorbacks climbed to 2nd after claiming the SEC title this past weekend in Columbia, South Carolina after 4 of their athletes in Taliyah Brooks (2nd), Payton Stumbaugh (3rd), Leigha Brown (6th) and Kelsey Herman (8th) recorded top-8 marks in the nation in the heptathlon. Daina Harper added the 5th-fastest 400 meter mark on the year as well, finishing in 51.36.

LSU finished 2nd to Arkansas this weekend, which was good enough to allow them to move up a spot in the rankings to 3rd. Rebekah Wales had the nation’s 2nd-best javelin throw of the season this past weekend at 58.23m (191-0), while Kortnei Johnson’s time of 22.50 in the 200 meters ranked 7th nationally and Ka’Lynn Jupiter’s mark of 56.68 in the 400 hurdles is good for 10th on the descending order list.

Texas A&M fell from 1st to 4th this past weekend after finishing 6th at the SEC Outdoor Championships, while Georgia jumped 2 spots to 5th.
