Spring sports are nearing the postseason, and a number of sports are poised for success.
- Oregon baseball is a few games away from a conference title, but the Ducks have a lot more on their minds. George Horton wants frequent trips to Omaha. According to Horton, "In my program if you don't go to Omaha it's a disappointing year. I hate to say that, but it is. So from those standards we still have a lot of work to do." Aaron Fentress' well-written article does a great job taking a look at Horton's plan, and the issues that stand in the way of sustained success.
- Looking at this season, the only real concern the Ducks have is hitting, where the Ducks are 198th in the country in runs scored. Horton also went on Bald Faced Truth yesterday, so listen if you dare.
- The Oregon women absolutely dominated the Pac-12 Championships, and a big part of that was Lauryn Newson, who scored the most points in the meet. After a tough transition from community college, she's peaking at the right time.
- Oregon softball is ready for their regional, and are taking the best offense in school history into the postseason. This is kind of a surprise, considering that entering Pac-12 play, the Ducks were last in the conference in runs scored. 11 Ducks earned all conference honors for their great season.
- The Oregon golf team starts the Ann Arbor regional today. If they finish in the top 5, they'll earn a trip to the NCAAs.
- Lastly, a great interview at FishDuck of former Oregon QB Reggie Ogburn. If you've been listening to benzduck over the last couple years, you've heard all about Ogburn. It's fun to hear from him on success at Oregon.
That's all I got. Leave anything else in the comments. GO DUCKS!
