Fred Foot Invitational Results'10

Fred Foot Invitational Results'10
January 23, 2010,  Toronto, ON

Track North and the Laurentian University Lady Vees Indoor Track team travelled to the University of Toronto this weekend to compete at the Fred Foot Invitational.

Competing against teams from University of Toronto, Queen's, McMaster, RMC, Laurier and various track clubs, the Lady Vees qualified for three OUA events and collected five medals including 2 silvers and 3 bronze.

Leading the Lady Vees was Emma Tallman (Mindemoya, ON) who was the 1st university runner in the 1000m (2nd overall) and 3rd in the 600m.  Tallman's times of 2:57.23 and 1:37.36 were personal bests, rank her in the top 10 in the OUA and qualify her for the OUA championships in both events.

Also impressive was Maggie Robins' (Port Perry, ON) 3rd place finish in the 1000m with a time of 3:01.36.  The time qualifies Robins to run at the OUA Championships at the end of February.  Stephanie Flieler (Trenton) ran to a 2nd place finish in the 3000m time with a time of 11:02.71.

Tallman commented, "I felt really strong and it's good to know I can run a solid time like I did in my 1000m despite running most of the race alone.  I'm starting to figure this distance out and I look forward to being pushed to faster times as we approach the OUA championships."

"Emma continues to impress," commented Darren Jermyn, assistant coach of the Lady Vees.  "She ran aggressively in the 1000m and it led to a seven-second personal best and a top 10 OUA ranking. Then she ran another personal best in the 600m with very little recovery time."

Next up for the Lady Vees is the York University Open Classic on Saturday, February 5th.
