OUA Indoor Track Results

OUA Indoor Track and Field Championships,
York University, Feb 27-28, 2009

Laurentian's Women's track team competed at the OUA championships this weekend, bringing home a top-six finish.

Madeleine Woods finished sixth in the 600m with a season's best time of 1:34.76, only .59 seconds out of a bronze medal. With 60m to go and still in contention for the medal, Woods found herself boxed in and unable to kick through the pack.
"I felt great, and had lots left at the end for a kick, but I just couldn't find any open space," said Woods.

Also competing at the meet were rookies Emma Tallman and Gracie Tetzlaff, who placed 15th and 16th in the 1500m, and Maggie Robins, who placed 17th in the 1000m.

Laurentian Results
6th, Madeleine Woods, 1:34.76

17th, Maggie Robins, 3:09.80

15th, Emma Tallman, 4:54.57
16th, Gracie Tetzlaff, 4:59.47
