The Oregon Men's and Women's Track and Field teams are headed to Seattle this weekend, opening their season at the UW Indoor Preview Saturday. Loaded with strong collegiate and professional talent, the event gives a great first test to both squads. 

The Women of Oregon, seeking their eighth NCAA Indoor Track and Field national title in nine years, won't debut their entire squad in Seattle, but will unleash a number of their incredible athletes. Leading the way is reigning indoor 200 meter champion Ariana Washington, who will test her early season fitness over 60 meters. 

Washington will be joined by super freshman Shae Anderson, who slated to compete in the 60m, 200m and 60m hurdles. Another top frosh, Kaylah Robinson, opens her Oregon career entered in the 200m and 60m hurdles. 

Add in 60m hurdle All-American Alaysha Johnson and reigning Pac-12 outdoor long jump champion Rhesa Foster, and fans will have a better idea as to how this year's team is shaping up come Sunday morning.

On the men's side, top freshmen Myles Webb and Reed Brown are set to debut. Webb is scheduled to compete in the 60m and 200m, while Brown will test his talent over 600m and 1000m. 

Another freshman, Joseph Anderson, who was arguably the top prep hurdler in 2017, opens his UO career as well, entered in the 60m hurdles. 

Keep an eye on the young talent ready to debut for the Ducks, while veteran athletes look to continue the program's success throughout the 2018 indoor campaign.
