WELCOME

The Order of the O is for UO former student-athletes who have earned a varsity letter in an intercollegiate sport while at Oregon. The purpose of the Order of the O is to perpetuate the legacy and tradition of University of Oregon Athletics. We promote excellence and leadership of all athletic programs by fostering enduring relationships among current athletes and former letter winners.

The Order of the O has become a productive, viable asset to the University of Oregon by adding value to the UO Athletic department and current student-athletes. Connecting Duck athlete alumni with current Ducks through mentorship and networking, the Order of the O is giving back by building a community to support among fellow Duck athletes.

Once a Duck, Always a Duck!

OREGON MEN DMR CLOCKS ALL-TIME NCAA, WORLD BESTS

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Just over a year ago, the Men of Oregon took down a 12-year-old collegiate record in the distance-medley relay at the Razorback Invitational. Friday night at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Ark., history repeated itself with the Ducks breaking their own record this time by more than five seconds with a time of 9:19.42 to cap Oregon’s indoor season opener.

Collectively, the Men and Women of Oregon recorded seven UO top-10 marks Friday at the Razorback Invitational including the record-breaking DMR showing.

Cole Hocker (2:49.89), Luis Peralta (47.29), Charlie Hunter (1:47.65) and Cooper Teare (3:54.61) not only broke the NCAA record but set a new all-time world best in the event. The team that had the previous mark of 9:19.93 from 2015 featured two past UO greats in Mike Berry and Matthew Centrowitz. Eric Sowinski and Pat Casey were also part of that relay.
