Juxtaposing two University of Oregon women's track teams nearly 3 decades apart our film will illustrate the progression of women’s athletics. The ’85 team was clearly in the shadows of the men’s program, winning an improbable national championship with few resources and a group of local distance athletes weaned on the heritage of “Tracktown”. The 2011 team is a diverse group of international “star” athletes that have garnered more accolades and attention than their male counterparts, finishing second in the nationals three years running. The film will slice into the fabric of these young athletes and their respect for all that has been done before them as they train for their next shot at the National trophy. Executive Producer: Ellen Schmidt-Devlin, Directed By Sarah Henderson and Erich Lyttle. Music by John Askew. Edited by Melissa Henderson.
