OUA Championships Results

OUA Indoor Track and Field Championships
York University, 2/26-2/27, 2010.

Two Laurentian athletes competed at the OUA indoor track and field championships at York University this weekend.
Emma Tallman achieved two top-ten finishes and two personals bests. Tallman placed 8th in the 1000m with a time of 2:54.63,  a 2.6 second personal best. She also placed 9th in the 600m with a 135.93, a personal best by 1.4 seconds.

Maggie Robins placed 15th in the 1000m with a time of 3:12.39.

"Emma definitely peaked at the right time, and she ran an excellent tactical race," said head coach, Dick Moss. " She was very aggressive and made a big jump in her personal-best times. At this point, she ranks 13th in the CIS in the 1000m. The best thing is, she's still very young and should be a real factor at the national level over the next three years."
