For the boys, Joseph Dotson set a new school record of 39.33-seconds with his win in the 300-meter hurdles. He won the 400 meter and the Viking boys finished 8th overall out of 16 teams. Seth Campbell was second in the 800; Jack Pickell was third in the 15-hundred.

In Pac-12 baseball, Oregon took two out of three from Washington State in Pullman, winning Friday in ten innings, 8-3; losing Saturday 3-1; then bouncing back for a 7-2 yesterday.
In Corvallis, The Beavers won the first two games of a three-game series against Utah, 3-nothing Friday and two-nothing Saturday. Yesterday the Beavers were up 2-nothing in the eighth inning, but the Utes tied it. The game was finally called after 15 innings, still knotted at 2-all because of Utah’s travel schedule.
