Oregon Track Starting Off the Season Right

It’s exciting to think about where Oregon track what Oregon track has the potential to accomplish by the end of this year. On Saturday, the Ducks racked up 12 wins in the Blue and Orange season opener. In the women’s 60m, Jenna Prandini ran a 7.48 which is the 4th fastest time in school history. Sophomore Arthur Delaney won the 60m as well, running a personal best 6.84.

Lauren Crockett cleared 5-8.75/1.75m and won the women’s high jump and Phyllis Francis ran a 23.91 to win the women’s 200m. Oregon also took the long jump with Trevor Ferguson putting up a jump of 23-4/7.11m and the triple jump with Tyler Pinkney winning the event. These are only a few of the many impressive performances by the Ducks on Saturday.

With the season just beginning and so many Ducks setting so many personal bests and records, it’s going to be very exciting to see where this season takes Oregon, especially when the outdoor season begins. If history repeats itself, look for Oregon to make noise this year in track and field.
