OXY HP Provides Positive Vibe for Curtis & Schappert




Bobby Curtis ran well at the OXY High Performance 5000 meter race tonight, coming 6th in a very deep international field in 13:24.15 -- his second-fastest career 5000 to date.  In so doing, Curtis improved some 8+ seconds over the controlled 5000 he ran at Payton Jordan two weeks ago when he ran 13:32.57.  His coaches at Hansons-Brooks are bringing Curtis along slowly this outdoor season, with the intention to have him peak at the USA championships (June 20-23), where he will try to make the US team over 10,000 meters for the world championships in Moscow.

Also, another positive step forward for Nicole Schappert at OXY HP. The former Villanova All-American is on the mend after surgery earlier this year forced her to miss the indoor season. Schappert, who was the USA #1 indoor miler in 2012, had just returned to the track a week earlier at a low-key meet in West Chester, PA outside Philadelphia (where she ran 4:15.98 -- go HERE for those full results).  Tonight at Occidental College, Schappert took another step toward competitiveness as she improved to 4:11.80.  Good to see Schappert back on the circuit and working hard to regain race fitness.  After a superb 2012 (when she set her 1500 PR of 4:06.87), look for her to get back in the mix in even top-tier competitions.
