Sophomore Thomas Cranor–from Eugene–is currently in the lead in the decathlon with 3,230 points while Kara Hallock is sitting in first in the heptathlon with 2,623 points. Cranor established his lead on Saturday by winning just one of five events but placing well enough to see himself in front of the pack. The lone event he won was in the long jump, where he reached a distance of 20 feet, 1 inch.

Hallock found her way into first place of the seven-event heptathlon by winning three of her four events on Saturday.  Heptathlon’s traditionally feature four events on one day and three events on the next. Yesterday’s events included the 100 m hurdlers, high jump, shot put, and 200 m. The final day of the heptathlon will feature the long jump, javelin throw, and 800 m.

Events finished yesterday in the men’s decathlon were the 100 m, long jump, shot put, high jump, and 400 m. The combined event will culminate today with the 110 m hurdlers, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw, and 1500 m.
