Campolindo’s Verdon will miss state track due to injury
Campolindo High senior girls distance star Carrie Verdon has been dropped from the 3,200 at the CIF State Track and Field Championships due to an ankle injury, according to Campolindo coach Chuck Woolridge.
Woolridge wrote in an e-mail to me that he would not comment on the exact injury until an MRI has been read by Verdon’s doctor. He said that injury is to the same ankle that Verdon injured at the end of the 2011 cross country season. She began to feel significant pain in the ankle in the North Coast Section Meet of Champions 3,200 on Saturday, which she won in an impressive time of 10:30.76.
The Colorado-bound Verdon finished third in last year’s CIF State Championship 3,200 final. She advanced to the state championships in both the 1,600 and 3,200 last season, but raced in only the 3,200 in this year’s NCS Meet of Champions.
