New plans for meets at Hayward

    Some of the nation’s best track and field athletes might return to Hayward Field this month for an Olympic tuneup, kicking off what could become a summer circuit of meets in subsequent years, officials said Sunday.Vin Lananna, University of Oregon’s director of track and field, said he is working on bringing a national-caliber meet back to Hayward on July 27.

    “It won’t be a great, big monstrosity, but we’ll have a couple events,” Lananna said. “We’ll try it out. But when we do it (in 2009), we’re going to blow it out.”
