This just in: The University of Oregon women’s track team — an underdog despite winning the last three consecutive indoor titles — captured its fourth straight NCAA Indoor Track & Field Indoor Championship, Saturday night in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Ducks ran away with the final event, the 4 X 400 meter relay, to finish with 56 points. Kansas finished second with 44, followed closely by LSU with 43. Other PAC 12 representatives finishing in the top 10 were Arizona and Arizona State, who tied for 7th with 25 points each.
Not to be excluded from a Top 10 finish, the Oregon men finished sixth.
WHAT THIS MEANS: The Oregon women have now won both the NCAA Cross Country Championship and the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship this school year and are on track to win the triple crown for NCAA women’s track & field! The final jewel is the outdoor championship, which will be held in the friendly confines of Hayward Field this June. GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!
