Trevor Dunbar will end his college career at historic Hayward Field.

The University of Oregon senior qualified for the NCAA Track and Field Championships last week at the West Preliminary meet in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Dunbar will be competing in the 5,000- and 10,000-meters when the NCAA Championships begin June 11 in his home stadium in Eugene, Oregon.

The Kodiak High School 2009 graduate finished eighth in the 10,000 with a time of 29 minutes, 35.59 seconds — 30 seconds behind winner Kennedy Kithuka of Texas Tech University.

Dunbar finished fifth in his 5,000 heat with a time of 13:48.64.

In 2012, Dunbar was an All-American in the 5,000 meters, finishing sixth at the NCAA Championships. He missed the 2013 track season due to injuries.

Dunbar was a multiple state champion cross country and track runner during his time in Kodiak. He also is the only Alaskan to run a mile under four minutes.
