In the world of USA track and field this weekend is considered crunch time! We have several athletes headed to Portland Track Festival for a last chance to hit the US outdoor qualifying standards to guarantee their spot in Eugene for the US Outdoor Track and Field Championship. Sunday is the last day for athletes to hit these standards. Portland Track Festival over the last seven years has grown to be one of the best professional meets in the country. Sally and I are both pumped to be heading to Portland to watch the meet. Here’s who we have from Oiselle team competing:
SATURDAY, JUNE 13
SUNDAY, JUNE 14
US Outdoor Qualifying A Standard
5k – 15:26
3k Steeple – 9:53

From our elite team four women have already met the A standard in their events: Britney Henry in the hammer (71.02 meters), Lauren Wallace in the 800m (2:01.13), Christy Cazzola in the 800m (2:02.95) and Collier Lawrence in the 3k steeple (9:50.47).
