Day 4: Amazing Awaits

Eugene, Oregon:  We were awake at an unnaturally early hour to get over to Historic Hayward Field for the last day of competition. Since the event was to be broadcast live on CBS, we knew the races would start on time and action would be non-stop.

Once again, Andrew Wheating lit Historic Hayward Field on fire.

Sophomore Matt Centrowitz, junior AJ Acosta and senior Andrew Wheating represented the Ducks in the 1500m final. The pace was slow and turned into a tactical sprint for the finish in the final 200m.

Almost unbelievably, the Duck finished 1-2-3!

The stadium erupted.

Did that just happen?

Andrew Wheating (center) became only the fourth collegian in history to win the 800m and 1500m double in the national championships.

The Ducks pulled-off the sweep and earned 24 sweet points!

Not to mention highlight coverage on ESPN all afternoon.

The Duck men receive their third-place trophy.

The Duck women - 2010 Indoor Champions - finished a fabulous second in the outdoor event this year.
