Carlyle Continues Breaking Records
Palo Alto, CA
This time around OSUJuniorLaura Carlyle had her own school record in hersights as she toed the line for the 1500m atthe Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford Uni-versity on Sunday. Carlyle shattered thatrecord, which she set in 2010 with a 4:23.86,by clocking an impressive 4:18.73 and takingthird in her section.
"It was a great field today.” Oregon State
head track coachKelly Sullivan said following the meet. "She reached another level today.She isn't one to show a lot of emotion, but shewas very happy and excited."Carlyle ran aggressively from the gun hit-ting opening splits of 69 seconds at 400m and2:18 at 800m, she was never any further backthan fourth throughout the race and battled forposition all the way through the finish line.
“She told me she turned her brain off and said to herself „I really wantthis no matter how I feel‟, a big step for sure,” said Sullivan.
Cobb Track and Angell Field has become a comfortable venue for Car-lyle, she broke the school record in the 5000m, by running a 16:19, onemonth earlier at the Stanford Invitational.Her 1500m effort on Sunday, was only her second of the season, heropening time of 4:26.34 at the Mt. Sac Relays was hampered by a verycrowded and slowly paced race and not feeling her best.
“Despite the outcome, I learned a lot from the race at Mt. Sac, whichhelped me accomplish everything I wanted this weekend,” said Carlyle.
 Carlyle also showed her range by running a solo 800m in a 2:09 per-sonal record and won the John Knight Invitational on April 9th.Carlyle is slated to run the 1500m at the Pac-10 Championships,hosted by the University of Arizona on May 13-14 in Tucson, Arizona.
“I had a lot of fun this weekend and can‟t wait for the next one,” said
Carlyle after arriving back home in Corvallis. She now owns four school re-cords total, the others also coming in the indoor mile and indoor 3000, notbad for a girl who never ran in high school, Read more about her story:

Redshirt FreshmanAudrey Botti has had a very solid 2011 season already, loweringher PR in the 1500 to 4:40, but her17:19 5000m debut at the Oregon Relays reallyshowcased the type of ability and potential
she possesses and how far she‟s come
from her 10:33 3k HS PR.Taylor Nowlin also had a big time debutrace in the steeplechase at the John KnightInvitational, winning the race and running avery respectable11:10,an incredible time since her HS PR in the 3000m was 10:47.The redshirt frosh also certainly turned afew heads with her aggressive attacks onthe water jump.
Walk-ons Emerging from the Stable
SeniorJen Macias continues to get faster each time out in the5000m, running a PR of16:47 at the MT. Sac Relays.SeniorHayley Oveson has kept the PR train rolling, with a4:35 1500m at the Mt. Sac Relays.Both her and Macias hope tofinish their careers with strongefforts in the 5000m at Pac-

Coach Sullivan has had his eye on a runner,who hails from the Oregon Coast like himself, inRaelyn Robinson for a few years. Robinson is a Two-Time Oregon 4A State Champion,1500m and Cross Country, and certainly knows what it is like to be partof awinning program at Siuslaw HS.

She choose OSU because, “Kelly is the coach I
want to run for without a doubt, he reminds me mostof my high school coach, and that is exactly what Iwas looking for and most important in my decision.Add in the amazing team, the facilities, and Corvallis
itself and I‟m very excited and feel blessed to be to begoing to OSU.”
Coach Sullivan echoes Robinson enthusiasm,
about the decision, “I‟m
really excited about Raelyn. Ihad opportunities to watch her over last couple years.I feel like she is a great fit, a tremendous talent com-ing from one of the best programs in state history anda great coach, who is a good friend of mine. I want togive a lot of credit to our assistant coach TravisFloeck, who was a key person in recruiting her. Wefeel we have landed one of the top kids in the
northwest and added to an incredible class.”
