Prakel, stanovsek earn all-american

Two Ohio Oregon Ducks earned All-American honors at last weekend's NCAA Indoor Track Championships in Arkansas.

Sam Prakel took 3rd in the Mile, only tenths from the win, clocking 3:58.59.
Sam has earned numerous All-American honors in his career at UO.

Stanovsek had the misfortune of getting tripped up and falling in his heat and failed to qualify for the final. Earlier this season , Mick had the leading Mile time in the NCAA at 3:57.

However, Friday night, Mick earned an All-American podium spot (for the 2nd time at Oregon) as a member of the 3rd place DMR. Mick ran a 1:48.75 800 leg moving the Ducks from 3rd to 2nd at the hand off.

Ohio Boys making a difference at the highest level of NCAA track!!

Some great miling by 3 former Ohio HS mile studs.

Oregon Ducks, Sam Prakel and Mick Stanovsik ran 3:39.75 and 3:39.96 to finish 3-4 in the 1500 meter run at the Stanford Invitational last weekend. That was a PR for Mick.
Those 1500's convert to 3:57.33 and 3:57.55 mile times.

Jacob Dumford (Westerville North) a 5th year Sr at Notre Dame, also ran a 1500 PR at Stanford last Saturday, racing to a 3:42.04. That is the equivalent to a 3:59.80 mile. Jacob has a 4:02.77 mile PR (indoor).

Yes, and to add to Ram On's post...Prakel and Stanovsek are now ranked 1-2 in the NCAA at this early point in the outdoor season.

The Sam and Mick Show Continues!

Sam Prakel and Mick Stanovsek both ran 1500 PR's, as 4 Oregon Ducks broke 3:40 at the Bryan Clay Invite at Azusa Pacific today.

That very well could be the first time in NCAA history that 4 athletes from the same school broke 3:40 in the same race.

Prakel led all Ducks with a PR 3:36.84, equal to a 3:54.18 mile. Next came James West at 3:37.41 (3:54.80) and FRESHMAN Reed Brown at 3:39.56 (3:57.12), followed by Ohio Duck, Mick Stanovsek in a PR 3:39.82 (3:57.40).

Sam's 3:36.84 now ranks #8 on the All-Time Ohio 1500 list!

I think it's beyond incredible that Oregon churns out milers like this. Four sub 3:40's in the same meet. Two of those WAY under 3:40. Surreal.

Take Sam Prakel and Mick Stanovsek as examples. They were exceptional HS milers, yes, but every year there are a number of Sam's and lots of Mick's around the U.S. So how many of those milers end up running as fast as Sam and Mick in college? Not many.

What did Sam and Mick run in HS?

Sam ran 3:46.93, 4:09.92 (1600). Now he's 3:36.84 and 3:55.89. Ten sec down in the 1500 and 15 sec in the mile. Mick ran 4:10.48 (1600) which is around 3:53.00 for 1500. He's now at 3:39.82 and 3:57.90. That's 13.6 sec down in the mile and over 13 sec for 1500.

Colby Alexander had about the same startling improvement when he went to UO. About 14 sec improvement in 1500 and 10 sec in the mile over HS.

And to top it off these HUGE improvements came off extremely fast HS PR's to begin with!!

Prakel #7 in NCAA history

Oregon's Sam Prakel's 3:36.84 for 1500 last week ranks as the 7th fastest American collegiate of all-time. Think about that! Amazing!!

The NCAA only counts times run thru the NCAA Championships as eligible marks.
Only marks run during the NCAA season count.

Jim Ryun actually ran 3:33.1 during the summer after his soph year in 1967 but since it was after the NCAA meet, it doesn't make the list.

In 2015 Colby Alexander ran a 3:36.56 in Portland a couple weeks after the USA Championships...but also outside the window. not sure if he wore the Oregon jersey in that summer meet but just weeks before that Portland meet, at the USA meet, he did run in the Oregon uniform, but had he run a time fast enough to make the list, it wouldn't have counted even tho he was competing for Oregon in the meet, because the USA Championships fall after the NCAA meet.

Follow up from last post....

As per the last post, Sam Prakel is now the 7th fastest American collegiate 1500 meter runner of All-Time (times run during the NCAA season).

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention another Ohio alum who also shows up on the top 10 list. Coming in at #6, just ahead of Sam, is Clayton Murphy. Clayton ran 3:36.38 in winning the NCAA 1500 meter Championship for Akron in 2016.

Ohio sure churns out the milers!!

PAC-12 1500 Champ!

Sam Prakel capped his Oregon PAC-12 career in style by capturing the 1500 meter title last weekend. This is quite an accomplishment as the PAC-12 is one of the elite T&F conferences in the country. Additionally, the field was stacked with numerous sub 4 minute milers. Sam's 10 points helped the Ducks win their 12th PAC-12 title in a row. Sam came back later in the meet to take 3rd in the 800.

Congrats Sam and GO DUCKS!!
