Kate Grace, Alexa Efraimson among Portland Twilight's entries: Oregon track & field rundown

By Ken Goe | The Oregonian/OregonLive

The makings appear to be there for a couple decent 800-meter races at this weekend's Portland Twilight, which takes place at George Fox University and Lewis & Clark College.

Assuming everybody shows up, the men's 800 will include Harun Abda of Oregon Track Club Elite, Olympian David Torrence, Eric Avila of Team Run Eugene and Edward Kemboi of Portland-based High Performance West.

The women's 800 is expected to feature Olympic finalist Kate Grace and Nike pro Alexa Efraimson, among others.

Action on the track begins at 4 p.m. Saturday at Lewis & Clark.

The timing of the meet is unfortunate, with the Pac-12 Championships unfolding in Eugene on Saturday and Sunday.

The Oregon Ducks will be attempting to sweep the men's and women's team titles for the ninth consecutive year.
