Cardama Baez last competed for the Ducks at the 2019 NCAA Outdoor Championships where she ran to a runner-up finish at 10,000 meters, the highest 10K finish by an Oregon woman since Kathy Hayes won the event in 1984.

What’s Next: The Ducks’ indoor campaign resumes Jan. 18 with the UW Indoor Preview in Seattle. It will mark the first of three meets in Seattle for Oregon this season with additional trips for the Husky Classic (Feb. 14-15) and MPSF Championships (Feb. 28-29).
