Tom Heinonen inducted into the University of Oregon Hall of Fame

Tom Heinonen inducted into the University of Oregon Hall of Fame We are thrilled to announce that Tom Heinonen, the father of our team member, Liisa, will be inducted into the University of Oregon Hall of Fame in October.

As a pioneer for women's track at Oregon, Tom took the program from its infancy to one of the most powerful names in women's distance. Tom coached NCAA champions and collegiate record-holders at every distance from 800-meters to 10,000-meters. He guided his athletes to 15 NCAA/AIAW titles, 108 All-America honors and 55 Pac-10/NorPac Conference titles in track and field. Many of his athletes went on to have post-collegiate success, with three American records, 17 Olympic appearances, 10 World Championships invites, 12 U.S. national track and field titles, 22 World Championships cross country invites, and five U.S. cross country crowns. His teams won the NCAA cross country championships in 1983 and 1987, and his track team won the NCAA championship in 1985.

Tom was named the PAC-10 women's track & field coach-of-the-year eight times, NCAA Coach of the Year two times and was inducted into the USTFCCCA Hall of Fame in 2006.

From all of us, Congratulations Tom!
