GENEVA, Ohio — The Eastern Oregon University track and field team finished the indoor season with six All-Americans after strong performances at the National Championships.

Hanchett, the 16th seed in the 800, finished sixth with a personal record performance. The sophomore’s time of 2:13.57 was only 0.34 of a second behind third place.
