Ben DeJarnette: Pac-10 Championships

Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 1:45 p.m.

Hi Duck fans!     

A busy week in the classroom thwarted me a week ago, but I'm glad to be back in the blogosphere this week with an update on our preparations for postseason competition.

First, however, I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who came out to support us at the Dellinger Invitational. Reclaiming the title in front of such an enthusiastic home crowd was truly a thrill for all of us. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!

The win at Dellinger and an excellent week of training have us in high spirits for this Saturday's Pac-10 Championships in Seattle. We are excited for the challenge of racing the nation's top-ranked Stanford Cardinal for the first time this season. Though I'm not in the business of prognostication, I can safely say this meet will be a thriller. For those with plans to be in the Seattle area this weekend, the event is being held at Jefferson Park Golf Course, beginning with the women's race at 10:00 A.M.

Finally, it's not too late to bid on our race-worn jerseys from the Dellinger Invitational. The auction is being held on GoDucks.com and closes Nov. 2, so bid soon! Proceeds benefit the Willamette Valley Cancer Institute.

Until next time,

Go Ducks!
