EUGENE, Ore. -- The O Heroes program hosted its annual Opening Ceremonies at Pape’ Field in Eugene this past Sunday. The evening was highlighted by a hypnotist act where 20 UO student-athletes were put under hypnosis and required to do several funny things.

Also as part of the event, executives of UO’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) -- Lena Macomson (Women’s Tennis) and Ben DeJarnette (Cross Country / Track & Field) -- spoke to the student-athletes in attendance about the importance of O Heroes.

Lisa Petersen, Oregon’s Senior Women’s Administrator, also spoke to the student-athletes about the importance of volunteering in the community.
