Ivy O'Guinn and Susan Bick each set personal bests in the women's 800, with O'Guinn clocking 2:12.26 and Bick posting 2:13.98. Alfred Kangogo also turned in a season-best in the men's 800, finishing in 1:54.06.
The men's and women's 4x400-meter relay teams were at their best as well, with the men finishing in 3:17.61 and the women posting 3:54.59.
Dunbar wins 5,000
Kodiak's Trevor Dunbar, a newcomer on the University of Oregon track team, helped the Ducks knock off defending national champion Texas A&M Saturday at the Pepsi Invitational track and field meet in Eugene, Ore.
Dunbar, who transferred to Oregon at the semester break after wrapping up his sophomore season of cross country for the University of Portland, won the men's 5,000 meter race in 13:51.79 seconds. He led a 1-2 finish that clinched the team title for Oregon, which finished with 204 points to A&M's 190.
Dunbar's convincing victory came in a field that included two runners ranked in the NCAA's top 10 -- No. 8 Chris Kwiatkowski of Oregon, second in 14:04:38, and No. 10 Kevin Burnett of A&M, fourth in 14:14.79.
