The sophomore distance runner is still working way back from injuries
Oregon won’t release its entry list for the Pac-12 Track & Field Championships until Wednesday, but during his weekly press conference Tuesday, Oregon coach Robert Johnson confirmed a couple of names headed to Stanford, Calif., this weekend.
Sophomore women’s distance standout Katie Rainsberger has made the cut despite being slowed this season by her recovery from a stress reaction in her ankle and a slight Achilles tendon tear. Men’s sprinter Myles Webb earned his spot after a strong performance at the Oregon Twilight meet on Friday.
Rainsberger, who was fourth in the NCAA Outdoor 1,500 last season, ran 4:23.03 on Friday in her first race in spikes this season after missing all of the indoor season and running just one 5,000 this outdoor season.
She's still seeking qualifying times for the NCAA West Regional meet.
Webb, a freshman from Glendale, Calif., was second in the 100 in a personal-best 10.42, and second in the 200 (21.26) on Friday at the Oregon Twilight, finishing behind Devon Allen in the 100 and former Duck Marcus Chambers in the 200.
