EUGENE, Ore. Hayward Field is a Mecca for track and field.
Based in Eugene, Ore. on the campus of the University of Oregon, Hayward Field seats more than 10,000 fans and holds prestigious meets such as the Prefontaine Classic (named after the legendary Steve Prefontaine), the United States Track and Field Championships as well as the Olympic trials.
Beginning this afternoon, Hayward Field hosts the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in which three athletes from Texas State will compete (Danessa Lyssey, Kelsey Titzman and Timothy Young). Titzman and Young qualified at NCAA West Regional meet two weeks ago, while Lyssey earned her spot with a win at the Western Athletic Conference meet back on May 11.
