Lukas Verzbicas ready for Hayward Field debut
“Come to Oregon…Come to Oregon…Come to Oregon.” At the 2008 Olympic Trials, an enthusiastic recruiting pitch from the stands showered Jordan Hasay after breaking the high school 1500m record. Since her arrival in Eugene, Hasay has been a huge contributor to the success of Oregon’s cross country and track programs.
Saturday’s Prefontaine Classic will be the first opportunity for Hayward Field to greet another high school standout and future Duck, Lukas Verzbicas. The recently graduated senior from Illinois makes his debut at hollowed venue this Saturday in the men’s 2 mile.
