EUGENE, Ore.— Lane Community College is proud to be the official practice facility for the 2014 IAAF World Junior Track and Field Championships. The level of activity so far has been intense, says Division Dean Chris Hawken, with several hundred athletes visiting Lane each day.

Lane’s track and field also served as the official practice site for the summer 2012 Olympic Trials. State high schools use Lane facilities annually for statewide track and field championships.

During the IAAF World Junior Track and Field Championships from July 19-27, Lane’s track is closed to usual use by Lane students and staff.
