Monroe native gains experience at Olympic long track trials
Placeholder Image
SOMERS - For the first time in 20 years, the Pettit National Ice Center in West Allis hosted the U.S. Olympic Long Track Speedskating Trials Jan. 2-7. The trials are usually held in Utah, however, due to the similar elevation of West Allis and Pyeongchang, South Korea, where the Olympic Winter Games started Feb. 8, the trials returned to the Pettit Center. With the trials back in Wisconsin, UW-Parkside student Jessica Crull, a former resident of Monroe, was one of the 16 volunteer undergraduate sports management students who participated serving in a variety of operational internships at the event.
