Des Moines, IA (WDAY TV) - This could be a great summer for some local track athletes. At least 4 have already qualified for the Olympic Trials later this month in Oregon, and a 5th seems certain to join them. That's former South standout Laura Roesler, back on the track in the 4 by 400 relay.

Roesler ran the 3rd leg for Oregon tonight and ran it well. She blistered the track in a time of 51.76, taking her team from 4th place to second after her leg. Oregon went on to win that heat of the relay. Roesler returns tomorrow to run the 800 final.
