EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Washington state man has filed paperwork to have the 93-year-old East Grandstand at the University of Oregon's Hayward Field designated with historic status to prevent the school from tearing it down.

The Register-Guard reports in a story on Saturday that Bob Penny of Bellingham, Washington, filed the paperwork on March 23.

Penny is a running fan who attended the school in the 1970s and says the grandstand should be preserved.

Hayward Field is a famed track and field stadium. But the school wants to triple seating capacity to up to 30,000 for the 2021 World Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Officials say Penny doesn't have the authority to seek historic status for the grandstand because he's not the owner.
