Jordan Hasay ran a strong anchor leg for the Oregon women’s distance medley relay team to give the Ducks a second-place finish in the event Friday at the NCAA indoor track and field championships in Fayetteville, Ark.
Hasay, running the 1,600-meter leg of the distance medley relay (1,200-400-800-1,600) brought Oregon home in a school-record time of 10 minutes, 58.96 seconds.
The Ducks were second in the event to defending champion Tennessee, which clocked 10:58.37.
Earlier this season, Hasay, a former Mission Prep star, ran the opening leg of the distance medley relay when Oregon set a school record of 10:59.64 in a meet in Texas.
Never miss a local story.
That time was the fastest collegiate time of the season entering Friday’s championships and, at the time, was the fifth-fastest in collegiate history.
Oregon has 13 points after the opening day of the two-day championships and sits in fourth place in the team race behind Auburn (18 points), Tennessee (16) and Arizona (15.5).
Earlier Friday, Hasay posted the third-fastest time in the mile qualifying, finishing in 4:41.89 and easily advancing to today’s final. She was only five-hundredths of a second behind the top time and entered the meet with the third-fastest collegiate time this season.
Hasay is also entered in today’s 3,000-meter final. There were no preliminaries in that event Friday.
