Duck men win Pac 12



The Oregon men's track and field team won its12th consecutive conference title at the 2018 Pac-12 Track and Field Championships. 

The Oregon women were locked in a thrilling battle with the Trojans from start to finish, narrowly finishing second, 16 behind USC. 

The unprecedented streak for the Men of Oregon began in 2007, at Stanford, and the Ducks kept it alive with a dominant performance

 Oregon finished with 174 points, 49 more than second-place Stanford and 56 ahead of USC, widely-considered the Ducks' top challenger. 

"The men have gotten used to this thing so they know what it takes to win," said head coach Robert Johnson. "Sometimes it's harder to have a feeling or know what you're suppose to do when you're predicted to win.

"I knew we would fight to the very end," Johnson said of the women's team.
