Written by GoDucks.com    Friday, 15 November 2013 02:45   

EUGENE, Ore. – The road to the NCAA Championships begins Friday with the NCAA West Regional Championships at Haggin Oaks Golf Course in Sacramento, Calif. The top two men’s and women’s teams from the West Regional earn automatic bids to the NCAA Championships Nov. 23 in Terre Haute, Ind., while a number of at-large bids will also be up for grabs.

The Duck men lead the West Region teams with a No. 4 national ranking, while Stanford (No. 6) and Portland (No. 10) also figure to be in the picture for the two automatic spots. No. 28 Arizona State, No. 29 Washington and Boise State (also receiving votes) will be looking to make their final pushes for men’s NCAA bids on Friday.

The women’s competition is more cloudy with No. 1 Arizona heading a deep field of seven nationally ranked teams. Among those squads jockeying for the second automatic bid will be No. 12 Washington, No. 15 Oregon, No. 17 San Francisco, No. 18 Stanford. No. 25 Boise State and No. 26 Arizona State.

In addition to the 18 automatic bids coming from the nine regional meets to be held on Friday, another 13 at-large bids will be extended Saturday based on head-to-head competition.

The men, racing at 10,000 meters for the first time this season, open the day at 10:30 a.m., with the women running 6,000 meters at 11:45 a.m.

The Duck men have entered Pac-12 individual champion Edward Cheserek, as well as fellow freshman Jake Leingang. Cheserek also won the Boston XC Invite, was second at the Bill Dellinger Invitational and took fourth at the Pre-Nationals, while Leingang was the runner-up in Boston.

The men have also entered seniors Ben DeJarnette, Mac Fleet, Brett Johnson and Parker Stinson, juniors Colby Alexander, Jeramy Elkaim, Eric Jenkins, Tanguy Pepiot, Ryan Pickering, Cole Watson and Daniel Winn, and sophomores Matt Jablonski and Matthew Melancon.

Megan Patrignelli heads Oregon’s women’s entries. The junior from Monroe, N.Y., has been the Ducks’ top finisher in all five races this season.

The women have also entered senior Samantha Murphy, Sarah Penney, juniors Lindsay Crevoiserat and Mia Elbon, sophomores Molly Grabill, Annie Leblanc, Abbey Leonardi and Julia Zrinyi and freshmen Theresa Haiss, Ashley Maton and Maggie Schmaedick.

In their most recent action, the Men of Oregon were the runners-up at the Pac-12 meet, while the women placed fourth.
