Courtney Frerichs Joins Bowerman Track Club

Courtney Frerichs, winner of the steeplechase earlier this month at the NCAA championships, has signed a contract with Nike and will be a member of the Bowerman Track Club in Portland, Oregon. BTC coach Jerry Schumacher and 2000 steeplechase Olympian Pascal Dobert will guide her transition from collegiate to professional runner.

“I am very excited about continuing my running career with Nike and the Bowerman Track Club,” Courtney said. “I believe the opportunity to work with Jerry and Pascal will help me reach my goals as a runner. Working with the amazing women of the BTC will be a wonderful opportunity to learn more. I can’t wait for the Olympic Trials and to start this new chapter in my career.”

Among Courtney’s training partners will be Colleen Quigley, last year’s NCAA steeple champion and the 12th finisher at last year’s World Championships.

Courtney won the NCAA steeple title in 9:24.41, a new NCAA record and a time that makes her the sixth fastest steepler in U.S. history.

Courtney will make her professional debut on July 4 in the qualifying rounds of the steeplechase at the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. The final will be held on July 7.
