Cardama Baez Wins 10k Title

///

EUGENE, Ore. — Two years after a breakthrough performance that led to a second-place finish in the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor championships, Oregon senior Carmela Cardama Baez fulfilled a dream by winning a national title at Hayward Field.

Cardama Baez, a senior from Spain, began dreaming of competing at Hayward Field as a high school sophomore. Multiple attempts to compete at the hallowed venue with a championship on the line fell short in the ensuing years, and her second-place finish in the 10k in 2019 took place in Austin, Texas, while Oregon’s facility was being remodeled.

But on Thursday night, Cardama Baez surged into the lead with two laps left and gapped runner-up Mercy Chelangat of Alabama to win the national title in a personal-best 32 minutes, 16.13 seconds.

“It means so much, because it’s been a long process,” said Cardama Baez, who crossed the finish line six seconds ahead of Chelangat after drafting off the Alabama sophomore for much of the final 4,000 meters. “To finally get this today with my people — with my parents watching from home, with my friends screaming from the sidelines — it means a lot. It’s a reminder of how long it takes, but also how many people you need in your corner.”

The national title by Cardama Baez was the highlight of Oregon’s second day of competition at the national meet, which saw both the men’s and women’s programs score their first points of the week. The UO women also got a fifth-place finish in the long jump from freshman Alysah Hickey, the Pac-12 champion, to finish the day second in the team race with 14 points, six less than Georgia.

The men got their first point of the meet from Max Vollmer, who took eighth in the decathlon; the men’s portion of the meet concludes Friday evening.

Thursday also saw the Oregon women’s 4×100-meter relay team post a season best of 42.86 seconds to reach Saturday’s final, and a PR from Aneta Konieczek in the 3,000-meter steeplechase as she advanced in 9:34.37. Kemba Nelson, who ran the second leg on the 4×100, also advanced to Saturday’s final in the 100 meters. She won her heat in 11.13 seconds, despite a slight headwind.

Jasmin Reed wasn’t able to advance and join Nelson in the 100 final, and Rhesa Foster came up short of providing points along with Hickey in the long jump. Lauri Paredes also experienced disappointment in the javelin, finishing 17th with a mark of 168 feet, 10 inches.

But the evening ended on the highest of notes for Oregon, thanks to the national championship by Cardama Baez.

Most of the field in the 10,000 ran together for the first half of the race, but then separation began to develop. With about 4,000 to go, Cardama Baez moved up in the homestretch of Hayward Field from seventh to third and tucked in behind Chelangat, who won the NCAA cross country title in March.

Cardama Baez moved up to second with eight laps remaining, and the two separated from the rest of the pack with about six to go. Wary that Chelangat might have a better finishing kick, Cardama Baez looked to create some separation over the final 800, and she took the lead before pulling away with about 200 to go.

Cardama Baez said she’s been working with UO distance coach Helen Lehman-Winters on “not just making a move, but making it progressive once you’re running that faster pace. I’ve been getting so much better at that the last two years, and that really played out today.”

Two years ago in Texas, Cardama Baez was the one who got gapped. She finished well to close the gap and trail the winner by less than a second, and while Cardama Baez called that a “breakthrough race” that helped her believe in herself, she also has waited two years to prove she could not only compete for a national title but win one.

“I built a lot of pressure on myself and wanted to do really well — wanted to prove something,” she said. “Once I started the championship season, and I won Pac-12s and focused on really having fun with that, and going to regionals and having a plan and having fun, the pressure went down. Today I was happy to be here.

“Today was my last race as a Duck. Tomorrow is my last final at Oregon. There’s just a lot to celebrate.”

Hickey also had much to celebrate, after a clutch performance to provide points in the long jump. Entering her final jump of the preliminary round, she was in 15th place, not in position to earn three more attempts. But she soared 21 feet, 4 inches on her third attempt, which held up as her best of six marks for a fifth-place finish.

“I talk to myself a lot when I jump so I was just talking and being dead honest with myself: ‘You have to put this together right now or else you’re going to embarrass yourself,’ ” Hickey said. “I needed the self-criticism but I was also saying, ‘You got this.’ Looking around, I wanted to do it for everyone. If it was going to end, I wanted to feel like I did all I could, so I got the clap going and had Eugene behind me so it was great.”

Thursday’s meet was conducted with 5,085 fans in attendance, the most yet since refurbished Hayward Field was unveiled.

“When I was watching (Friday), I found myself looking around at everybody because there were so many people,” Hickey said. “Today, when they were taking us through the tunnel, I could feel the rumble from the crowd but it was making me excited. I wasn’t really nervous. I had fun and got to compete with Rhesa (Foster), who is the best training partner I’ve ever had. It was good to have her alongside me out there.”

Hickey wrapped up her series in the long jump with the 10,000 meters already underway. Within about 20 minutes of Hickey providing the first points of the meet for the UO women, Cardama Baez provided their first individual title, to the delight of that crowd.

“It’s something we say a lot but it’s still really true — the magic of Hayward Field is in the fans,” Cardama Baez said. “We need them — need the sounds, need the clapping, need the screaming. They make this place, and it’s awesome.”

Ducks Off And Running In NCAAs

///

EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon’s best chances for accumulating points in the men’s team race at the NCAA Outdoor championship meet all had impressive showings Wednesday at Hayward Field.

Sprinter Micah Williams led all qualifiers in the 100 meters in 10.11 seconds, and the Ducks also comfortably advanced contenders Charlie Hunter in the 800 and Cole Hocker in the 1,500. In the decathlon, which concludes Thursday, Max Vollmer is in position to improve on his fifth-place finish in 2019, entering the second day of competition in third place with 4,140 points.

Williams ran his 100 prelim just as the light drizzle falling on Hayward Field developed into heavy rain.

“I just needed to focus,” he said. “I’m from Oregon so (the rain) was nothing new to me so I just needed to go out there and run my race. It’ll be the same for the final … just run my race and execute and that will take me wherever I need to go.”

The UO men had to contend with some disappointment, with Jackson Mestler the fastest runner in the 3,000 steeplechase heats not to advance, and Reed Brown getting disqualified from the 1,500 final after it appeared he had advanced thanks to a frantic final kick and lean at the finish line.

But Jonathan Harvey ruined some form charts in the 400 hurdles, making the final on time after running 50.16 in his heat to open the door for some points Friday when the men’s portion of the meet concludes.

“It was really nerve racking but I had faith,” Harvey said. “I’d prayed about it this whole week and a lot it was believing in myself and believing in what I do but still, it was still nerve racking watching the clock. It was close and I knew that last heat was one of the faster heats.”

Vollmer will wrap up his decathlon Thursday amidst the first day of competition on the women’s side. He’ll look to build on a first day of competition Wednesday that saw him set two personal bests and tie another.

Day one of the 2021 D1 Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon on June 9th, 2021 (Eric Evans Photography)

Vollmer leapt 23 feet, 6 inches for a PR in the long jump, and he was the top thrower of the shot in the field with a mark of 51-5.5, another personal best. He then tied his PR in the high jump, at 6-2.25.

The day’s highest drama might have come in the second of two heats in the 1,500, featuring UO runners Hocker, Brown and James West. Hocker comfortably won the heat in 3:38.34, and though West faded out of position to advance, Brown tracked down both Talem Franco of BYU and West in the final few meters and outleaned Franco for the fifth and final automatically advancing spot into Friday’s final.

But the third lap of the heat featured a fall around the Bowerman Curve that claimed two other runners, and the finish was hard-fought as well. After a protest was filed, Brown was disqualified from the race.

Williams exploded into the lead of his 100-meter heat over the opening 15 meters and cruised to the top time of the day. In the 800, Hunter was sharing the lead in his heat with teammate Luis Peralta until the final 200 meters, when Peralta faded to sixth and did not advance.

“The times weren’t really a problem today,” Hunter said. “Today was just about racing. I treated today like a final. … I wanted to win and I wanted to do it as controlled as I could. I was hoping to bring Luis along with me but I think we raced our best race, and unfortunately it didn’t work out but at least we got one in the final.”

Oregon’s 4×100 relay team also did not advance, taking sixth in their heat and 17th overall in 39.53 seconds. The Ducks’ only scoring opportunity Wednesday was in the javelin, in which Dalton Rasmussen threw 206-1 and didn’t score.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Oregon track and field team collected 16 national qualifiers on the final day of the NCAA West Preliminary at E.B. Cushing Stadium. During the four-day meet, the Ducks advanced 24—15 men, nine women—to the NCAA Championships (June 9-12) at Hayward Field in Eugene.
 
The men’s running events were added to Saturday’s program after inclement weather postponed action from day three. The revised schedule began at 9:30 a.m. (PT) with the men’s 4×100-meter relay.
 
Advancing to the NCAA Championships
MEN (15)
Reed Brown – 1,500 meters
Isaiah Griffith – triple jump

Micah Williams/Gaston Bouchereau/Rieker Daniel/Jacoby McNamara – 4x100m relay
 
The UO men racked up four qualifiers in the first two events of the day, beginning with the 4×100-meter team of Micah Williams, Gaston Bouchereau, Rieker Daniel and Jacoby McNamara. The UO quartet finished third in heat three in 39.30 to secure an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Championships. That time ranks No. 8 in UO history.
 
The Ducks will have three men in the 1,500 meters with Cole Hocker, James West and Reed Brown all running to top-five finishes in the first of two heats Saturday. Hocker was the top-overall qualifier in 3:38.29 while West and Brown both recorded season bests of 3:38.96 and 3:39.29, respectively. Brown previously advanced to the NCAA Championships in 2019.
 
After his lead-off leg with the 4×100, Williams was back on the track with a personal-best 10.00 performance that tied the No. 2 mark (with Kyree King) in program history. Williams, the NCAA indoor champion at 60 meters, came into the meet with a 100-meter best of 10.03 from the Desert Heat Classic in early May. The Portland native was the top-overall qualifier and broke the E.B. Cushing Stadium facility record.
 
The Men of Oregon added two more national qualifiers in the 800 meters with Charlie Hunter and Luis Peralta. Hunter, the NCAA indoor champion in the event, crossed in 1:47.65 and was the third-fastest qualifier. Peralta (1:47.82) finished just behind his teammate in heat two and qualified sixth overall. These are the NCAA qualifiers at 800 meters for the UO men since Boru Guyota in 2014.
 
For the third time in his career, Jonathan Harvey advances to the NCAA Championships and for the second time, he’ll be competing in the 400-meter hurdles. He recorded a personal-best time of 49.83 to tie the No. 2 mark in Oregon history (Bob Gray – 1992). Harvey was a national qualifier in the hurdles in 2019; his first appearance in 2018 was as a member of the Ducks’ 4×400-meter relay.
 
Eugene native Jackson Mestler will compete for a national title at Hayward Field after securing a top-three heat finish in the steeplechase. The Pac-12 champion in the event crossed the finish line in 8:39.23, the fourth-fastest time during the qualifying round. Mestler qualifies for his first-career appearance at the NCAA Championships.
 
Hocker notched his second qualifier of the day with a runner-up finish in the opening heat of the 5,000 meters. He ran a time of 13:57.02, easing across the line alongside Luis Grijalva of Northern Arizona. Hocker will be joined by teammate Cooper Teare (13:52.94) who was the fourth-overall qualifier in Saturday’s semifinal round. Teare is set for his third-career NCAA appearance in the 5,000 meters.
 
Notable: Jack Yearian knocked more than a second off his PR with a time of 3:41.45 in heat two of the 1,500m; finished 16th overall … Jacoby McNamara (20.66) tied his lifetime best in the 200m; finished 13th overall …

Kemba Nelson – 100 meters
Lauri Paredes – javelin
Jasmin Reed – 100 meters
Dominique Ruotolo – triple jump
Jadyn Mays/Kemba Nelson/Jasmin Reed/Danyel White – 4x100m relay
 
In the first women’s result of the day, the 4×100-meter team of Jadyn Mays, Kemba Nelson, Jasmin Reed and Danyel White combined for a time of 42.94 to win the second heat and advance to the national meet. On the anchor leg, White erased a small deficit to get the Ducks across the line in first ahead of Texas.  
 
The UO women grabbed another qualifier in Dominique Ruotolo in the triple jump. She secured her spot at the NCAA Championships with a mark of 13.38m/43-10.75 in the opening round. Ruotolo, a national indoor qualifier as well, was the Pac-12 champion in the event with a PR of 13.66m/44-9.75 from the conference meet.
 
Aneta Konieczek ran her way to a spot at the national meet, recording the sixth-fastest qualifying time in the steeplechase. She becomes the first UO woman to qualify for the NCAA Championships in the event since the 2014 season (Megan Patrignelli). Konieczek crossed the line in 9:49.96 to finish third in her heat, good for an automatic bid to Eugene.
 
Nelson and Reed returned from their duties with the 4×100-meter relay to collect individual qualifiers at 100 meters. Nelson followed her wind-aided 10.91 from Thursday’s prelims with a new personal best of 10.98, the fourth-fastest performance in UO history. She becomes the fifth UO woman to run sub-11 with a legal wind, joining the star-studded list featuring Jasmine Todd, Jenna Prandini, English Gardner and Hannah Cunliffe.
 
For the second time in her career, Reed advances to the NCAA Championships in the 100 meters. She posted a time of 11.41 to grab one of the three at-large qualifiers. Reed previously competed at the national meet as a freshman in 2018. In her third race of the day, Reed clocked a season-best time of 23.26 in the 200 meters. She finished 15th in the event while White (23.18) just missed a qualifying spot in 13th place.

Ihemeje, Griffith Qualify; Day Three Postponed

///

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The No. 2 Oregon men’s track and field team added two more national qualifiers on day three of the NCAA West Preliminary before inclement weather halted competition. Just before the delay, the Ducks got qualifying performances from Emmanuel Ihemeje and Isaiah Griffith in the triple jump.
 
All field events Friday were completed but the remaining schedule was postponed until Saturday. An updated schedule and more information will be released after details are confirmed.
 
Advancing to the NCAA Championships
Isaiah Griffith – triple jump
Emmanuel Ihemeje – triple jump
Dalton Rasmussen – javelin*
Max Vollmer – decathlon
(* from Wednesday)
 
The Ducks’ first national qualifiers of the day came from Ihemeje and Griffith in the triple jump. On his first—and only—attempt, Ihemeje got out to 16.98m/55-8.5 to surpass and improve on his own school record. The mark is also the E.B. Cushing Stadium facility record and stands as the No. 3 jump in the NCAA this season.
 
Griffith qualified with a season best of 16.20m/53-1.75 in the second round of flight one. He led through two flights and finished fifth overall. Griffith’s mark puts him at No. 6 on the UO top-10 list. This will be his second NCAA appearance and first with the Ducks having previously qualified in 2017 with Nebraska.
 
The meet entered the weather delay at approximately 3:15 p.m. (PT) before the start of running events.
 
Notable: Lucas Ribeiro notched a personal best of 55.12m/180-10 to finish 18th overall from the first flight of the discus … Ben Milligan cleared 2.16m/7-1 but finished 13th in the high jump, just missing a national spot.
