Pavlo Hutsalyuk(sr) of Lane Tech is going to sign with the University of Iowa. Hutsalyuk won the CPS individual city cross country championship last fall and is the defending CPS city champion in the 1600 meter dash. He ran a 1:55.95 in the open 800 meter run at state track sectionals and ran a 4:17.85 in the 1600 meter dash last year. He will be the top returning runner in the CPS this year in the 800, 1600, and 3200 meter run.
Hutsalyuk- who is of a proud Ukrainian descent, was also recruited by Penn State and Indiana University. He took an official visit to Penn State. Ultimately, he decided he wanted to be a University of Iowa Hawkeye.
He can now focus on the track season where he looks to improve on his already blazing 4:17.85 season best 1600 meter run of last year and get into a few 4x800 meter relay races and maybe other events.
Good luck to Hutsalyuk as he finishes his senior year!
