Oregon freshman Jordan Hasay finished fourth Saturday in the women’s one-mile run at the NCAA indoor track and field championships to help the Ducks win their first indoor team title in Fayetteville, Ark.
The former Mission Prep star was fourth in the mile in 4 minutes, 38.29 seconds after entering the meet with the third-fastest collegiate time this season.
The top three finishers ahead of Hasay are all seniors. Florida’s Charlotte Browning won the race in 4:35.66 and was followed by Washington’s Katie Follett (4:36.29) and Florida State’s Pilar McShine (4:37.20).
Hasay was also in the 3,000 Saturday but stepped off the track and did not finish that race.
The Ducks finished with 61 points to easily win the women’s team title over runner-up Tennessee, which scored 36 points.
Hasay also ran the anchor leg on Oregon’s second-place distance medley relay team Friday. That team set a school record of 10:58.96 in finishing behind Tennessee (10:58.37).
Florida took the men’s team title with 57 points to 44 for Oregon and Texas A&M, and 42 points by LSU.
The individual highlight of the meet came from Oregon’s Ashton Eaton, who set a world record in the two-day men’s heptathlon, scoring 6,499 points to break the world and American record of 6,475 points set by Dan O’Brien in 1993. O’Brien was the 1996 Olympic gold medalist in the decathlon.
