Robert Johnson Oregon head coach said, “We tried to build a complete and balanced team”, and they were led in the sprints, as Jamaica’s Kemba Nelson won the 100m and 200m at the PAC-12 championships. Nelson, who started things off in the 11.05 gets out of the blocks extremely well and just maintains reform and speed all the way through the tape, getting the Ducks on the board early.
On championship Sunday, she came back in the 200m and duplicate Nelson really starting to become one of the premier sprinters of this Oregon ducks program and doing something that hasn’t seen a duck sprinter done in a long time, and that’s double up in the one 100m and the 200m. As the Oregon women start to separate from the rest of the field, Nelson Crossed the line first at 22 74. Nelson transferred last season from the University of Technology in Jamaica and attended Mount Alvernia High School in Montego Bay Prior to that to UTECH.
