You can add another trophy to the mantle of Kodiak’s most famous runner. Trevor Dunbar’s Oregon Ducks won the NCAA indoor national track and field championship over the weekend.
The University of Oregon senior placed in two events to help the Ducks clinch the title in Albuquerque, scoring 62 points, eight more than runner-up Arkansas.
Dunbar was fifth in the men’s 3,000 meters with a time of 8-minutes 14.13-seconds on Saturday. The day before, in the men’s distance medley relay, Dunbar had a late surge in his 1,600-meter leg to help the Ducks to a second-place finish.
Oregon swept the team titles, the first time that’s happened since 2008, with the Lady Ducks winning their fifth straight championship.
