Emily sat in the back of the pack for most of the race. Big big group that was somewhat strung out. She steadily moved up and got near the front of the pack right next to Sheila Reid, Abbey D and Van Dalen. Huddle kicked into high gear with two laps remaining. The rest of the leaders chased but at that point in the race, Emily had nothing left (used alot to get back near the front) and quickly faded. Both Abbey D'agostino and Van Dalen ran great races.
Katie Flood ran really well in the 1500. She pretty much owned the race. Rachel Schneider ran well too and was in it for most of the race. Good PR for her.

Nevada, do you know what happened to Chelsea in the 800? Noticed her time was well off what she usually runs so was wondering if she fell or stumbled. I did see her pace the Elite Mile last night and she seemed fine so i don't think it's an injury. Btw, nice run by Maggie in the mile.

Been doing others things (relay for life, meetings, etc.), so I am not on top of things right now. I did see that Rachel ran well too.

So no, I don't know about Chelsea. For Abbey and van Dalen to beat Sheila in a sprint they must be in great shape. I would think Emily is coming back from her indoor season and will be there in the NCAA and OT trials. I think her whole year has been geared for that. But that 5000m time will qualify her for first round of NCAA.
Treniere Clement Moser just finished 3rd in the elite 800 in 2:01.
