The Oregon State Beavers hosted a meet at the Whyte Track and Field Center this weekend. That may not sound very impressive, but, as BCSNN highlights, the meet was the first the Beavers have held since Ronald Reagan occupied the Oval Office.
Head coach Kelly Sullivan, who has been instrumental in reinvigorating Oregon State’s track program, said he was proud of how his team performed in the landmark meet:
“Each year it seems we have had a first – and this year is no different by having women competing in both the hammer, pole vault and 4×100 relay. These three events are important to continue building that comprehensive program everyone is working towards.
“Overall, we had a really good day in the first outdoor meet for our athletes. We had an amazing turnout of spectators, over 80 officials and volunteers, and some outstanding performances. It feels great to have a home meet on our campus. We had five winners and seven second-place finishes.”
You better watch out, Ducks. Y’all are no longer the only school in the state with a track program.
