Current Track News

12/15 – RIP Joe Lanning

Just received word yesterday of the passing of Joe Lanning. Joe was our hurdle coach from 1999-2004 having coached NCAA Champions Felix Sanchez, Natasha Danvers, & Ryan Wilson (Felix & Natasha also account for 2 Olympic golds and a bronze). Other hurdlers include William Erese, Natasha Neal, and Ginnie Powell. Joe had a wonderful impact on our athletes.

 

Before USC, Joe was at Long Beach City College from 1956-1996 and along the way acquired 20 Conference Championships, 13 Southern Cal titles, and 13 State Junior College titles. His awards include the Community College Hall of Fam, the LBCC Hall of Fame, and the City of Long Beach Century Club. Joe was 90 years old.

11/23 – RIP  Luther Hayes

Luther Hayes, who won a pair of NCAA triple jump titles in the early 1960s while at USC and also played a key role in the Trojans’ 1958 football game against UCLA, died on Nov. 23 in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., due to natural causes.  He was 78.

 

A funeral will be held on Dec. 5 at 11 a.m. at Holman United Methodist Church, 3320 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles 90018.  Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Dec. 4 at Green Hills Mortuary, 27501 S. Western Ave., Rancho Palos Verdes 90275.

 

Hayes came to USC from San Diego’s Lincoln High (he previously had attended San Diego High), where he was on the football, basketball and track teams.  He was All-City in football and was the 1957 state long jump champion.

 

He was on Trojan track teams that won the conference championship all three of his years and captured the 1961 NCAA team title (USC was the NCAA runner-up in 1960).  He won the NCAA triple jump crown in 1960 and 1961, becoming the first man to win a pair of NCAA titles in the event that was then called the hop, step and jump.  His 51-2 ¼ leap in 1961 was an NCAA Meet record.  He also was second in the 1961 NCAA long jump (then called the broad jump).  He was ranked 10th in the world in the triple jump in 1961.  He also captured the conference triple jump and long jump crowns in 1960 and 1961, setting a USC record while winning the 1961 triple jump (51-9 ½);  it was 27 years before another man won both of those league events in the same year.
