Monmouth, OR: The Ducks’ women’s track and field team came into the week ranked second in the nation, looking to continue their success. The team has made quite the impression lately, and on Friday it was the Ducks in the field events who really made an impact.
Laura Bobek shined the most with a victory in the women’s discus competition. The junior Oregonian won with a throw of 51.70m, which is less than three feet from her personal best at 52.58m. Jillian Weir also had a good day in the discus competition coming in third, and she really made noise in the hammer, throwing just a few feet short of a personal best to finish second. Rachel Sherrell threw a personal best in the javelin at 44.19m, placing third.
On the men’s side, freshman Ryan Hunter-Simms from Highland, CA placed second in the shot put and third in the discus. He set personal bests in both events and should give the freshman confidence to help the Ducks as they look to repeat as PAC-12 champions.
Bryan Holt is a 20 year old junior at the University in Oregon looking to major in Journalism and Communications with hopes in pursuing a career as a sports writer or analyst.
