Track Talk with Julie and Courtney
Huskies Track Athletes and Provincial Record Holders
Brainsport is pleased to present an exclusive evening with two of Saskatchewan's top female track athletes!
From soccer to track and field, both Julie and Courtney followed a similar path. They both started as soccer players and have since become two of Saskatchewan’s and Canada’s top middle distance runners.
Julie started as a soccer player (4 years as a U of S Huskie), and transitioned into one of the U of S’s top female track and field athletes ever (5 years as a U of S Huskie), winning the Canada West, and U Sports female track athlete of the year in her final year as a Huskie. Julie went from running 2:11.88 in 2015 (as a 1st year university student) to running 2:02.07 in 2018 in the 800m.
Courtney left soccer in high school to concentrate on track and field, and has had a huge improvement since. She went from a provincial high school silver medallist in grade 12, to becoming a Junior national champion one year later. Courtney went from running 4:48.06 in 2016 (grade 12) to running 4:11.83 in 2018 in the 1500m.
Come out on Thursday, April 25th at 7pm to listen to their stories of how they got there, and where they are going in the future.
