Rosalind was one of Frederick County’s finest female sprinters and hurdlers. Competing for the Frederick Track and Field Club in age group AAU competition, she was ranked as one of the 12 best hurdlers nationally. In 1975, she won the 100-meter hurdles in the National Junior Olympics. At age 16, she tied the American record in the 100-meter hurdles in the AAU National Women’s Junior-Senior Track and Field Championships. She was also a member of the elite FTC 400- and 800-meter relay teams that achieved national recognition. At a time when few athletic scholarships were available to women, Rosalind received a full scholarship to run track at Florida State University.
