Name: Garrett Huyler
Hometown: Milwaukee, WI
Sport: Track and Field (High Jump)
Years in current sport: 15 years
What got you started: As funny as it sounds, Baseball is the reason I got started in Track and Field. During baseball tryouts, I had injured my shoulder pitching and could hardly throw a baseball. Rather than tell anyone, I was stubborn and tried to play through it. Needless to say since I couldn’t throw, I got cut and then joined the track team. The rest is history.

This past weekend, Kara Goucher took the first steps in her comeback, as she ran the TCS New York City Marathon. After 15 months of not racing, it was exciting and inspiring to see Kara toe the start line and give it her all. Race conditions were tough with cold temperatures and strong winds. But Kara gave it her all and we are excited to have her back and running!

Preparing for a Long Season
The main goal of my pre-season workouts are to prepare my body for the rigors of what the upcoming season will bring. I will take thousands of jumps, run miles of sprints, and do hundreds of plyometric exercises throughout the season and if I do not prepare myself during the preseason it would just be asking for an injury. My main focuses during the preseason are on general strength, endurance, and flexibility.
