Tristin Van Ord made her return to the indoor track last Friday night at the Camel City Elite Invitational. The event was held on the JDL Fast Track, a 200m flat track facility in Wintson-Salem, NC, a mere 2 hour drive from ZAP, and was Tristin’s first indoor track race since graduating from Appalachian State in 2017.
With only 7 participants the women’s 5,000m field featured quality over quantity with the top 3 athletes all bettering the meet record of 16:49. Tristin clocked an indoor personal best of 16:32 to take 3rd place behind 2 sub-16 minute performances. Tristin’s outdoor personal best was set at the end of her 2020 summer racing season where she ran 16:14 at the Music City Invitational in Nashville, TN.
