 Edward Cheserek and Matthew Maton finished first and second, respectively, to lead the Men of Oregon at the NCAA West Regional Championships Friday at Haggin Oaks Golf Course.
 Both the men's and the women's teams finished fourth on Friday and hope to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships.
 Thirteen at-large bids for the Nov. 19 NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., will be awarded on Saturday.

Cheserek, recently named the Pac-12 athlete of the year for the fourth time in his career, continues to make history with every race and by winning Friday in 29:23.7, he became the first Duck to win three NCAA West Region crowns. Maton, a sophomore from Bend., Ore., was nearly as impressive. He posted a career-best second-place finish in 29:44.9 as the men ran at 10,000 meters for the first time this year.

The two automatic bids on the men's side went to No. 4 Stanford, which won with 75 points, and runner-up No. 12 Portland (90 points). No. 10 UCLA was third with 112 points, followed by No. 10 Oregon (122) and No. 17 Washington State (143).
