Sari’s future on right ‘track’

For Keren Sari, a future with the UNM track and field team was just an e-mail away. In 1999, Sari, who is from Omer, Israel, sent e-mails to several coaches at universities in the United States inquiring about their programs.

Harris takes painful track to success

Monique Harris wakes up, her knee aching and throbbing with pain. She does not want to go to training today. She looks over to a paper taped up on her wall at home. Covered with goals she has set for herself, she knows to accomplish them she has to ignore the pain and train to get better.
