Just wanted to let everyone know that I have decided to transfer from the University of Oregon. It was a very tough decision because I’ll miss all of my friends and teammates so much but in the end I have to do what’s best for me. Oregon was a place that I had wanted to go since I was little and I wanted it to work out more than anything but some things simply aren’t meant to be and I was not throwing to the potential I know that I have. I don’t know where I will be next fall but I am excited for what the future will hold and the new opportunities that will help me accomplish the goals and dreams that I have. Best of luck to all of my Oregon teammates and especially my brother on this year’s outdoor season. #rio2016 #freshstart

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Haley [Crouser] has left the University of Oregon. Everyone on all sides tried their best and worked their hardest, it simply didn’t work out. It takes a lot of guts to leave a situation, a job, etc., that isn’t working out and Molly and I know this was a very difficult decision. Throwing the javelin is truly an art form – it is hard and there are lots of variables. Sometimes it seems easy, sometimes next to impossible, kind of like a golf swing. In high school, Haley was the best javelin thrower the U.S. had ever produced and she hopes to get back to those levels and beyond. She has lofty goals. Thanks to the U of O for giving her the opportunity to be a Duck and best of luck this season – especially to the men repeating as champions and Sam Crouser knocking one out of the park. As for Haley, she doesn’t know what the future holds, but in life the biggest rewards often require some big risks. We’re proud of you Hay!
We all wish her and her family well.
