Ducks begin outdoor season by setting meet records at Oregon Preview

The Oregon women had a big outdoor debut at the Oregon Preview on Saturday setting four meet records at Hayward Field.

Saturday marked the first sign of spring in Eugene as the Oregon track & field teams made their outdoor debut at the Oregon Preview under sunny skies at Hayward Field. It was a quick turnaround for Oregon coming off a pair of indoor national championships in Albuquerque last weekend.

Christian Brennan, part of Oregon’s 4x400 team that clinched the team’s fifth straight national championship last weekend turned right around with wins in the 400 and 200. Brennan’s time of 23.61 seconds in the 200 set a new meet record.

The Ducks dominated the 200 as Brennan, Ashante Horsley, Marybeth Sant and Sasha Wallace took the top four spots in the race. Oregon also swept the 400 as Brennan, Horsley and Shannon Leinert went 1-2-3.

Oregon also had a strong showing in the 1500 as Laura Roesler and Annie Leblanc finished second and third, respectively. Former Duck Anne Kesselring won the 1500 in 4:18.99 racing for the Oregon Track Club.

Redshirt freshman Brittany Mann set another meet record in the women’s shot put with a throw of 53-4.50 (16.27m), the second best distance in school history.

Lauren Crocket set another meet record as she cleared 6-0.50 in the women’s high jump.

The 4x100 team also got in on the trend of setting meet records as Marybeth Sant, Phyllis Francis, Jenna Prandini and Jasmine Todd turned in a winning time of 44.10 seconds.

On the men’s side, Jonathan Cabral won the 110 hurdles while teammate Devon Allen took second place. Last weekend, Cabral took fourth in the 60 hurdles at the indoor championships.

Oregon’s men also had a strong showing in the 1500 as Jeramy Elkaim, Chris Brewer, Daniel Winn and Cole Watson took the top four spots. Elkaim won the race in 3:45.33.

The men’s 4x400 team of Devon Allen, Arthur Delaney, Mike Berry and Marcus Chambers took the win with a time of 40.46, beating second place Corban by more than two seconds.

Next weekend, the Ducks head south to the San Diego Invitational, a three day meet beginning on Thursday. Oregon will return home on April 5 for the Pepsi Arizona Dual, one of the more highly anticipated meets of the season.
