Prep Basketball Falls Victim to Slick Roads

All area prep sports are cancelled this evening because of slick road conditions inland… that means no Mapleton and Triangle Lake basketball.

It also means the first day of the Junction City prep basketball tournament is cancelled.  Siuslaw teams will stay home this evening.  No decision yet on whether or not they’ll play tomorrow or Saturday.

NCAA Finals and Hayward Field

Tracktown USA will continue to be just that at least through the end of this decade.

University of Oregon and NCAA officials announced yesterday that the school’s venerated track and field facility… Hayward Field… will be the home of the national championships through 2021.

It’s been the site of the NCAA outdoor championships 11 times already, including last June.

Hayward Field has also hosted the U.S. Olympic Trials; most recently in 2008 and 12; and will do so again in 2016.
