Kendra Farmer could potentially have a lengthy career in track and field, but she is still going to soak in one part of her time in the sport that is jetting down the final stretch.

On the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds, Farmer is a regular at the Track and Field Track training as an elite-level athlete, while helping coach with the Running Wild Athletics Club. Since September of 2017, she has been one of the stars with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Women’s Track and Field Team.

This season, Farmer is embarking on her final season with the Huskies. While she has always been focused on performance goals, Farmer said she is going to allow herself to truly soak in every experience that comes with being a member of the Huskies this season.

Her highlight moment last season came when she set a new Huskies record in the women’s 300-metre race. Farmer set the new program standard at the Canada West Conference championships and broke a former mark that had stood since 1975.

In the classroom, Farmer is an engineering student, and she has been a U Sports academic all-Canadian from the moment she joined the Huskies.

A story about Farmer going on her final run with the Huskies is our feature piece in October’s upload for the “Howe Happenings” blog. In the story, she looks ahead to what her track and field career could look like once her time with the Huskies is complete.

Besides the piece on Farmer, we have a photo roundup that shows the fall sports season rolling in top gear on over the past 30 days.
