Nine Times and Counting

Every spring it seems one of the LA schools, or perhaps Stanford or maybe Arizona State comes into the Pac-12 Track & Field Championships thinking they have a chance to wrest the title away from the Ducks.

This year it was to be USC that threatened Oregon’s stranglehold on the hardware. But for the ninth straight time, neither the men nor the women of Oregon were having anything to do with the notion.

The Ducks positioned themselves to rack up the points with a strong showing on Saturday, then on Sunday they buried the Trojans – and the rest of the conference – in a flurry of meet records and personal bests.

Unexpected points in the women’s triple jump and a strong showing across the board in the sprints – including a 1-2-3 finish in the women’s 100m – gave the Ducks more than enough a cushion to coast home with the championship – the 11th straight for the men and nine straight for the double dip.

Ducks Snap Skid, Upend ASU 54-35

Just when you thought the Duck defense was going to give up another touchdown, safety Tyree Robinson had other plans. It’s been a rough season for the Oregon defenders to say the least, but Robinson’s 84-yard interception return set up the Ducks final touchdown and sealed a big 54-35 win over Arizona State Saturday night […]
