    Duke Women’s Track and Field Team ACC Co-Champs!!!

    Tonight in Raleigh, the Duke Women’s track and field team tied Florida State for the ACC Championship with each team scoring 110 points. A key race was the 400 meter run where Duke scored 28 points placing 1,2,4,5, and 8th. Four of the five 400 meter runners ran legs on the winning 4x 400 meter relay. This was the final event of the night for the women.
    I believe this is the first time in Duke’s Track and Field history a Duke team (men or women) has finished first in an ACC Championship meet. Congratulations to Director of Track and Field Shawn Wilbourn and his staff and all the team members!

I remember the Al Buehler era of Track.Bob Wheeler was a star in the mile and 1500 Meters. I saw Steve Prefontaine run at the old Wallace Wade track on the infield.In the 70's mid summer hot and humid .USA/Africa 30,000 to 40,000 in attendance.

    In our basketball discussions we often worry about "the demise of college sports" and "how badly the NCAA and NBA (as co-conspirator) are ruining college sports".

    I think our sense of pride and interest in Duke sports won't wane because of how may different sports and true student athletes there are to cheer for!!!

    Congrats to the women's T&F and softball teams!!!

    Go Duke!!!

    I enjoy watching all Duke sports. Basketball is the best, but seeing the Duke name on any jersey is enough to keep me cheering!!

    I'll be honest, this came out of nowhere for me. Men's lacrosse (co-champions), women's golf, softball and now women's track and field. Am I missing anything? Four ACC titles in the spring is pretty darned impressive and a nice going away present for the incumbent AD.

    Coach Wilbourn was officially named head coach a month or so ago, so he's won a conference championship every year he's been head coach so far. Impressive stuff.
