Women’s 2014-2015 Track and Field Preview

The UNB Varsity Reds track and field team is ready to hit the track.  They take part in their first official meet of the 2014-15 season this Saturday November 29th from 10am to 3pm at the Gagetown Last Chance meet at Oromocto Base.

Last season the V-Reds finished in third place at the AUS championships with 45 points and failed to qualify any athletes for the national championships.  This year the women are looking to improve on both of those results. 
Leading the way will be captain Sarah Myatt who will be competing Saturday in the 600m and the 200m.  Myatt is the three-time AUS 600m champion and will surely be looking to continue this streak at the 2015 championships and start the season off with a bang.  

Two weeks ago first year Sydney Macdonald set new team records at a small meet in Halifax in both the 60m and 60m hurdles and will also be looking to continue and build on that momentum as she competes in the 60m, long jump and 200m on Saturday.

Joining Myatt on Saturday will be Cailie McGuire (1500m) who is coming off an exceptional first year cross country season, Anne Ugabi (60m, 200m, long jump), Emily Carr (60m, 200m), Fallon Gaudet (long jump), Victoria Oduneye (shot put, weight throw), Courtney Barbour (600m, 1500m), Molly Gallibois (1500m), Priya Bhutani (1000m, 1500m), Catherine Tremblay (1000m), Ashley Gallagher (60m, 200m), Nathalie Cecire (600m), Brooke Gaudette (long jump) and Tess McDonald (long jump). 

"Our ladies have worked extremely hard this fall and I believe they are ready to state their intentions this weekend. While we don't peak or plan for huge performances this early in the season we do want our student-athletes to see what they have got in the tank and a little competition is a great way to do that," said head coach Jason Reindl.
