The Men of Oregon tallied 16 points to win the Division 1-scored team competition, as teams from Portland and Portland State finished second and third with 48 and 74 points, respectively. The UO women posted a perfect score of 15 points and beat Oregon State (second, 50) and Portland State (third, 115).
In the men's 8,000m race, a pair of unattached Duck runners – Isaac Stoutenburgh and Patrick Werhane - crossed the line together in first place in the same time of 24:10.
Six current UO-affiliated or unattached men's runners immediately followed to complete a sweep of the top eight positions overall and included senior James Withers (third, 24:12), sophomore Kevin McNally (fourth, 24:12), unattached runners Chris Winter (fifth, 24:21) and Chad Hall (sixth, 24:26), senior Esteban Trujillo (seventh, 24:38) and redshirt freshman Mathew Cravens (eighth, 24:46).

The Duck men won their 14th Pac-10 team title last year, while the UO women took fourth in the league meet for the second straight season – its first pair of top-four finishes since 1997 and '98. Junior and individual champion Galen Rupp was one of four All-Pac-10 honorees for the UO men with fellow first-team recipient and redshirt junior Shadrack Kiptoo-Biwott (sixth overall), and sophomore Diego Mercado and Patrick Werhane were tabbed to the second team (ninth / 12th overall), as was junior Zoe Nelson in the women's race (14th overall).
