Track Ducks Expected to Score Big at the NCAAs

Isaac Gibson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

The Oregon women are no strangers when it comes to performing well at the indoor track and field championships. The lady Ducks have won 5 straight NCAA indoor titles, but this year may be the toughest one yet. The year before, the Ducks were not ranked 1st place going in, but they still came out as champions. This year however, they are going in ranked at 7th behind Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Texas, and Kansas State.  In order to come out with another win, the lady Ducks need to have at least two big scorers at the NCAAs. Luckily, they have just that with Jasmine Todd and Jenna Prandini.

Jasmine Todd

Todd is going to the NCAA with the second-fastest 60m dash time in the country at 7.15 seconds, as well as the seventh-farthest long jump with 6.43m. With third place and seventh place only 6 centimeters apart from each other, it would not be out of the question for Jasmine to score 15 points by herself.

Prandini is in a very similar situation as Todd, because she is coming into the NCAA running the second-fastest time in the 200m with a 22.94, and qualifying in the long jump with the fourth-best jump of 4.46m. Again, as with Jasmine, it would not be unreasonable to expect Jenna to score 15 points by herself.

Between these two women, there is an estimated 30 points and last year the women won with 44 points. There are five more women being sent to the NCAAs who all have potential to score some points.

Good luck to all the ladies going to Fayetteville, go Ducks!
