One chapter closes and another begins at the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field. The East Grandstand was demolished beginning Friday morning, excavators making short work of the 93-year-old structure. 

Some protested the decision, arguing the facility should have been preserved. Others have said they’re looking forward to a new stadium that’s part of the $200 million renovation of the U of O’s track and field facility. The overhaul is slated to be done by 2020.
