Oregon Women Pursue Track Trifecta

By Jim McCoy Wed 5th June SportsOregon Duckstrack and field
The sign in the women's locker room at Oregon's Hayward Field read: "Triple Crown. Every practice counts." Oregon's women have won both the NCAA cross country and the indoor championships. Only one other team, Texas in 1986, has added the outdoor title in the same school year for the so-called Triple Crown. The Ducks hope to be the second at this year's championship, which starts Wednesday in Eugene. Oregon hasn't won an outdoor title since 1985 but it has been close for the past four years, finishing as runner-up. This year, there's a feeling Oregon is poised for the Triple Crown, given its achievements so far and the home-track advantage. The women won the cross country title for the first time since 1987, then added a fourth straight indoor championship.
