For me the start of indoor track season is like December 1st: the start of an exciting build up to December 25th Christmas – and in the track world – Christmas would be USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in June. Two weekends ago we opened the indoor season with three of our Haute Volée runners competing: Laura Carlyle of Seattle, WA raced the 3k at the Husky Preview with a time of 9:23 for 4th, Christy Cazzola of Appleton, WI raced the 800m at the UW OshKosh Indoor meet with a time of 2:07 for 1st, and Kerri Gallagher at the Terrapin Invite raced the 800m in a time of 2:10 for 1st. Hell ya! First holiday party done!
You see where I’m going with this. The excitement of the season is just getting started. Last weekend, veteran Oiselle team member Megan Rolland who is training in Emmett, ID opened at the Bronco Invitational at Boise State with a 4:58 mile, Christy Cazzola and Jennie Kormanik went 1-2 at SPIRE Invite with 2:06 and 2:12 and Jordan Hamric from Memphis, TN opened at the Vanderbilt Invite with a 9:32 in the 3k and a big "W" for the day. What’s the track party schedule from here? Enjoy following these fast women and check back here for updates on what specific events they will be racing each week!
