The University of Oregon Ducks, fresh off a sweep of the NCAA men’s and women’s track and field championship, just added some more firepower with the announcement on her Twitter account that Tumwater HS graduate Brooke Feldmeier (left/photo by Mike Scott) will transfer from the University of Mississippi.
At Ole Miss, Feldmeier was the SEC champ in the 800 meters, and was the runner-up indoors. She earned All-America honors indoors with her eighth place finish in 2:05.80.
Feldmeier ran a personal best 2:03.13 in finishing seventh at the NCAA East Regionals, after running 2:04.44 to win the SEC title.
At the USA junior championships in Eugene, Feldmeier was fifth in the 800m, running 2:10.57.
During her career at Tumwater, she won state titles at the 200, 400, and 100 hurdles her junior and senior seasons, and won two Washington state heptathlon titles.
She becomes the second high profile Washington prep in the last week to transfer from another university to Oregon, joining sprinter Hannah Cunliffe, who earlier announced that she was transferring from Oklahoma.
