The Oregon track and field team had an impressive performance at the UW Preview inside the Dempsey Indoor facility in Seattle, securing eight wins. Some top performances came from Klaudia Kazimierska and Maddy Elmore in the women’s mile, and James Harding in the men’s 600 meters. Jadyn Mays stood out with victories in both the 60 and 200 meters.

In the women’s mile, Kazimierska solidified her position as the second-best performer in program history with a runner-up time of 4:31.87. Elmore, following her school-record 3K performance, set a new lifetime best of 4:33.04, becoming the seventh-fastest mile performer in UO history.

Elmore continued her success with a 2-3 finish alongside newcomer Mia Barnett in the 800 meters, finishing in 2:08.87 and 2:09.38, respectively. Barnett and Dalia Frias also ran in the mile, with Frias showing resilience despite a fall during the third lap.

James Harding, a redshirt freshman from New Zealand, started his Oregon career with a victory in the men’s 600 meters, clocking 1:18.83. The Ducks dominated with a 1-2-5 finish by Matt Pueschner and Vincent Corday.

The day began with Mason Strunk winning the men’s weight throw, finishing at 20.70m/67-11. Aaliyah McCormick secured a win on the track with a time of 8.26 in the final of the women’s 60 meters.

Jaida Ross set a meet record in the women’s shot put, reaching 18.18m/59-7.75. Jack Normand led a 1-2 finish for the Men of Oregon in the high jump, clearing 2.10m/6-10.75. The team closed the day with a victory in the 4x400-meter relay.

Other notable performances included Jadyn Mays’ wins in the 60 and 200 meters, and top-three finishes in field events by Ryann Porter in the triple jump and Annika Williams in the high jump. Rafael Raap achieved a lifetime best in the shot put during his season debut. Overall, the Ducks showcased their talent and depth across multiple events at the UW Preview.
