Individually, a total of 14 student-athletes are three-time All-Americans including Carmela Cardama Baez (3000m, 5000m, DMR) and James West (mile, 3000m, DMR). 2020 USTFCCCA Indoor All-Americans – Men of Oregon: Isaiah Griffith – long jump, triple jump, Cole Hocker – mile, Charlie Hunter – mile, DMR, Jackson Mestler – 5000 meters, Jacob Miller – DMR, Luis Peralta – 800 meters, Cooper Teare – 3000 meters, DMR, Max Vollmer – heptathlon, James West – mile, 3000 meters, DMR.  Women of Oregon: Gabby Beauvais – DMR, Carmela Cardama Baez – 3000 meters, 5000 meters, DMR, Taylor Chiotti – DMR, Brianna Duncan – 60 meters, Susan Ejore – 800 meters, DMR, Lexi Ellis – triple jump, Rhesa Foster – long jump, Mathilde Rey – pentathlon. Normal policies dictate All-Americans are awarded based on their performances at the NCAA Championships. However, criteria was adjusted this season due to the cancellation of the 2020 Division I NCAA Indoor Championships, which were to be contested March 13-14 in Albuquerque, N.M.   For individual events, all student-athletes listed on the start list for the anticipated event were honored. For the relay events, the four student-athletes who produced the qualifying performance were recognized.
