UO release – SEATTLE, Wash. – The Oregon track and field team picked up four wins and had five top-10 program performances Saturday on the final day of the Ken Shannon Last Chance Invite. Rafael Raap finished a wire-to-wire victory in heptathlon with the Ducks’ other wins coming in the women’s 4×400 relay and individual titles from Ryann Porter in the triple jump and Jaida Ross in the shot put. Raap led throughout the two-day, seven-event competition and posted a winning tally of 5,757 points. The effort doubles as a new collegiate best for the UO standout and makes him the No. 5 performer in UO history. Like Friday’s start in the 60 meters, Raap began day two with a lifetime best of 8.31 in the 60-meter hurdles and followed with a clearance of 4.75m/15-7 in the pole vault. The UO women capped the weekend with a victory in the 4×400-meter relay in a season-best time of 3:30.25 from Shana Grebo, Ella Clayton, Katriina Wright and Shaniya Hall. Based on times entering the weekend, the Ducks’ relay moves into the top eight in the NCAA this season. The quartet had a season best of 3:31.34 prior to Saturday’s race. In an indoor-best showing, Porter bookended her series with identical marks of 13.01m/42-8.25 to win the competition and add a centimeter to her previous best. Five of her six measures Saturday were far enough to claim the top spot. Porter now moves into sole possession of the No. 4 spot on the program top-10 list. Ross added the Ducks’ second first-place performance of the day while topping her own meet record in the process. She improved on each of her first three throws, getting a measure of 18.34m/60-2 in round three. Ross improved by five centimeters for a day’s best of 18.39m/60-4 on her final toss. The Medford native won the competition by just over five feet. Maddy Elmore led a trio of lifetime-best performances in the mile, dropping her best of 4:31.41 which moved the Eugene native from eighth to fourth on the UO list. While establishing a new personal best, Mia Barnett added her name to the program’s all-time list—No. 10—with a 4:33.40 in Saturday’s mile. The two standouts finished second and fifth, respectively, in the race. The third lifetime best came from Junction City grad Anika Thompson (4:487.37) who knocked more than 20 seconds off her previous best from last season. It was her second PB in as many races this weekend after a 9:18.57 over 3,000 meters Friday evening. Freshman Osawese Agbonkonkon was second in the men’s high jump with a clearance of 2.10m/6-10.75 which marks a collegiate-best effort. He began the weekend with a season’s best of 2.07m/6-9.5 from a month ago at the Razorback Invitational. Up Next: National qualifiers will be announced next week with the top 16 declared athletes and top 12 relays advancing to the 2024 NCAA Indoor Championships (March 8-9) in Boston.
