2008 PAC-10 Track and Field Championships, Day 2

The Arizona State University women and University of Oregon men successfully defended their PAC-10 track and field titles on Saturday night in Tempe, AZ.

The Sun Devil men’s team came within 1.5 points of the team title, after placing first and second in the 200 meter dash, and first in the triple jump. ASU senior Kyle Alcorn added the 5,000 meter title to his 3,000 steeplechase victory from the night before. The Sun Devil 4×400 meter relay team ended the night with a thrilling victory over Oregon. However, the late surge wasn’t enough to overcome Oregon’s depth in the 5,000 meter run, where the Ducks placed five among the top eight finishers.

The Sun Devil women’s team won their third straight team championship, with solid performances in the field, sprints, and distance events.
