The Oregon Ducks won their 12th consecutive men’s track and field Pac-12 title on Sunday.
Oregon scored 174 points to win the conference championship. Stanford placed second with 125 points and USC took home third by scoring 118 points.
The Ducks had a balance attack to win the team title.
“To win a dozen championships is definitely big time for the Ducks,” Oregon coach Robert Johnson said on Pac-12 Networks interview, per The Oregonian’s Ken Goe. “We just need to continue to do what we’re doing.”
Cravon Gillespie won the 100-meter dash in a wind-aided time of 10.05. He placed second in the 200 meters (20.26) and was part of Oregon’s second-place 4×100-meter relay team.
Runner Sam Prakel won the 1,500 meters (3:40.20) and finished third in the 800 meters.
Oregon’s Damarcus Simpson took home the long jump crown (27 feet, 4 inches) and also finished second behind Gillespie in the 100 meters.
The USC women denied the Ducks of a ninth-straight Pac-12 title.
Trojans sprinter Kendall Ellis won the 400 meters in a world-leading time of 49.99. Ellis’ time was also a USC and meet record.
The Trojans outscored the Ducks in all the sprints and that proved to be the decisive deference.
USC scored 170 points, Oregon was second with 154 and Stanford finished third with 119 points in front of its home crowd.
