Blue Standards Being Hit Despite Weather

The Drake Relays are just over 3 weeks away... hard to believe with this weather, right? But the wintery misery hasn't held these athletes back from hitting their Blue Standards so far this season.

Ellie Friesen's performances are particularly intriguing. Not only is she the only athlete to qualify in three events so far (800, 1500, 3000), she also hosts the top times in all three events so far this season. It will most definitely be an exciting couple of weeks to see if others begin to challenge those times, and will be interesting to see who comes out on top on the Blue Oval!
