By Lois Lumbra — Congratulations to Elle Purrier-St. Pierre: She was watched by many views this past Monday 6/21 evening as she ran the 1500 meter in Oregon at the USA Track and Field trials. Her time was 3.58.03. She will be going to Tokyo to run in the Olympics — she has worked hard through the years to achieve this dream of hers. Elle we are all so very proud of you. . . you go girl!
