ATQ hit 1,000,000 page views over the weekend. This is definitely exciting, as it's come a long ways from Dave's early toil, and I'm just happy to be a part of this. Thanks to everyone who comes around and takes part in the site, as well as to those of you who stop by every day. On to the Fix:
- If you're in Eugene, and didn't head out to Hayward, you missed out. The men's and women's track teams swept the Pac-10 championships for the first time in school history, the men's team winning their third pac-10 title in a row, and fourth in the past five years.. Both teams set school records in total points, the women collecting 165.5 and the men collecting 158.
The signature moment of the meet was the men's 1,500m. And the Duck swept that as well, with Matthew Centrowitz, Galen Rupp and Andrew Wheating taking 1-2-3, respectively. Wheating also competed in the 800m, which he won by a mere two-hundreths of a second.
- However, the star of the meet was junior Ashton Eaton, who scored 26 points, and was the top men's scorer of the event. After winning the decathalon last weekend, Eaton PR'd both the long jump (taking second with 25 feet, 60 3/4 inches) and the 400 meters (taking third with a time of 46.34 seconds). He also ran the lead off leg for the 3rd place 4x400 relay squad. Yet, the team captain simply wanted to talk about his team after the victory. Vin Lanana said of his star, "He’s too good to be true, actually, in every way, shape and form.
- The Register Guard has a slideshow up of the track meet.
- Oregon men's golf had a strong showing in the NCAA West Regional, qualifying for the NCAA championships. The star performer was Eugene Wong, who shot a 7-under 65, hitting two eagles in the process. The NCAA championships will be held in Toledo Ohio from May 26-30.
- Lastly, Oregon baseball continues it's long slide. The worst hitting team in college baseball was swept by No. 3 (and Pac-10 champ) Arizona State, getting shut out twice and being outscored 27-2 overall. Keep up the good fight guys!
