The Monmouth College women’s track team has moved into the nation’s top 20 in the latest United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) rankings.

The Fighting Scots’ women – ranked 46th a week ago – jumped 30 spots to No. 16 this week after a strong showing at last Saturday’s Fighting Scot Open at the Huff Athletic Center. The Scots posted six provisional performances, including one first-time qualifier and five improved efforts. The women also moved up two spots in the regional rankings to No. 7 in the Midwest Region.

The team features two area athletes in Morgan Leffel of Viola and Chelsey Widdop of Reynolds.

 Widdop placed fourth in the high jump at the Fighting Scot open with a leap of 5'0-1/4"
