The Yale track and field women will wear an uncommon logo on their uniforms this season as women's apparel company Oiselle has partnered with the Ivy League school to outfit its first NCAA affiliate.
The women's kit will also be worn by the women's cross-country team and features 11 pieces of apparel for the athletes.
The Seattle-based company, founded in 2007, makes women's apparel and sponsors professional track and field athletes such as two-time Olympian Kara Goucher, U.S. champion Lauren Fleshman and middle distance runners Lauren Wallace and Kate Grace.
“We are very excited about outfitting our women in Oiselle,” Yale coach David Shoehalter said in a press release. “Ever since Kate Grace (a 2011 Yale graduate) signed with the company we have admired what they do. Sally and her team have worked hard to craft a look for our team that is modern yet still respects the history and tradition that Yale Track and Field and Cross Country embody.”
The Yale track and field team's women were previously outfitted by Asics. The Bulldogs will debut their new uniforms against Princeton and Harvard in a cross-country meet on Sept. 11 in Boston.
