Two track and field athletes from Lane Community College are currently in first place in the decathlon and the heptathlon after using big Saturday’s to open up the Lane Multi Qualifier.
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.

The final day of the heptathlon will feature the long jump, javelin throw, and 800 m.
