Weekend Preview

Koons to Race Two Mile at Armory Track Invitational

On the heels of her stellar showing at the Great Edinburgh Cross Country Run, Frances will contest the Two Mile Run at the Armory Track Invitational in New York this Saturday.  She'll be up against a high quality field, and will be aiming to qualify for the USATF Indoor Track and Field Championships by hitting the 10:07.00 qualifying standard.  Her race is at 4:48pm and will be televised live on NBC Sports Network, so tune in and support her from afar if you can.  Here's the word from Coach Jerry: 

"When I told Frances that there was a meet at the Armory on January 30 that I thought she could run, she was under the impression that it was an all-comers meet where she could make a low key return to indoors.  The field is a tad better than an all-comers meet, but our miscommunication will work to her advantage, as she's fit and ready to take a shot at a qualifying time for nationals."

Good luck Frances!
