Highlights: NCAA Track & Field Outdoor Championships, Day 4
Jun 16, 2014
Fueled by three individual national champions Saturday, the Oregon men won their first team title at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships since 1984. The Ducks needed 24 points entering the day to secure an outdoor title, after winning the NCAA Indoor title earlier this year, and got all that and more with wins from Mac Fleet in the 1,500 meters, Sam Crouser in the javelin and Devon Allen in the 110 hurdles.
Oregon's bid to sweep all four NCAA indoor and outdoor track and field championships this year fell short on the women's side Saturday, but not for lack of effort from Jenna Prandini. The Ducks' sensational sophomore finished second in the 200 meters by a fraction of a second. That finish followed her win in the long jump and a third-place showing in the 100, making Prandini responsible for 24 points in the meet, more than any other competitor this week at Hayward Field, male or female.
