Former Mission Prep and Oregon standout Jordan Hasay finished second Thursday in the women’s 10,000-meter run at the U.S. Track and Field Championships at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento.

Hasay, who was also second in the U.S. meet last year in Des Moines, Iowa, took the lead over Kim Conley with about a lap remaining in the race.

However, Conley caught Hasay and sprinted past her in the final 150 meters to win the national title in 32 minutes, 2.07 seconds to Hasay’s 32:03.08.

Conley’s win came in front of her hometown crowd as she competed collegiately at UC Davis and is an assistant cross country and track and field coach there now.

Hasay has enjoyed a big season already in her first full professional season since graduating from Oregon in 2013. Hasay has already set personal records outdoors this year in the 1,500 (4:11.23), the 2-mile (9:35.05), 5,000 (15:28.56) and the 10,000 (31:39.67).

Elsewhere Thursday, former Cal Poly star Maggie Vessey won her heat of the 800 in 2:01.87 to easily advance to tonight’s semifinals. She had the fourth-fastest overall time of the day. Five-time national champ Alysia Montano ran in the 800 while 34 weeks pregnant.

Montano completed the race in 2:32.13 and finished last in her heat.

Also competing today will be former Cal Poly star Sharon Day-Monroe in the heptathlon and former Cal Poly star Ben Bruce in the men’s 3,000 steeplechase.

Former Cal Poly star and 2008 Olympic gold medalist Stephanie Brown Trafton will be competing in the women’s discus Sunday.
