Pac-12 Track & Field claims eight event titles, 99 All-Americans at NCAA Championships

Jun 8, 2019


SAN FRANCISCO - Pac-12 Track & Field programs accounted for five top-10 team finishes, eight event national titles, 22 podium appearances and 99 All-America honors to highlight competition at the 2019 NCAA Outdoor Championships at the University of Texas' Myers Stadium from June 5-8.

Four Pac-12 women's teams finished in the top 10, led by Conference champion USC's runner-up showing with 57 points as the Trojans were edged for the team title by Arkansas (64 points) in the 4x400 relay finale. OREGON placed fifth with 34 points, COLORADO recorded its second-best showing ever at the national meet in ninth with 24 points, and STANFORD tied for 10th with 20 points.

Pac-12 women won a whopping seven of the 21 events - tied for the most in the meet and the most for the league since 2012 - including repeat national titles from USC's Anglerne Annelus in the 200-meter dash (22.16, second-fastest in Conference history) and Stanford's Mackenzie Little in the javelin. CALIFORNIA's Camryn Rogers registered the second-best hammer throw (71.50m/234-7) in Conference history to capture the event on Thursday, while USC's 4x100m relay posted the second-fastest mark (42.21) in league annals to open Saturday. Oregon's Jessica Hull (4:06.27) set a Conference record en route to a runner-up finish in the 1,500-meter run.

All totaled, Pac-12 women reached the podium 15 times and garnered 54 All-America honors, highlighted by 35 who earned First Team recognition. Three Pac-12 women collected a trio of First Team honors in USC's Annelus (100m, 200m, 4x100) and Anna Cockrell (100mH, 400mH, 4x400) and UCLA's Alyssa Wilson (discus, hammer, shot put).

On the men's side, Stanford led the Conference with 32 points for fifth place - its best finish at the national meet since 2001 (fourth). The Cardinal's Steven Fahy was the lone men's individual champion with a victory in the 3,000m steeplechase. Fahy's win extended the Conference's streak of at least one NCAA men's event title to 60 consecutive years dating to 1960.

Pac-12 men amassed seven podium finishes and 45 All-America nods, including 23 First Team honorees highlighted by Fahy's triumph, runner-up finishes from Oregon's Cravon Gillespie in the 100m (9.93) and 200m (19.93), the third-fastest times in Conference history in both events, and UCLA's Dotun Ogundeji in both the discus (fourth) and shot put (5th).
