Carolyn Legard had a huge impact on track and field throughout Northern Virginia. She was a physical education teacher and a coach at W.T. Woodson High School from 1962 to 1985. She was also one of the main driving forces behind increasing the number of female sports in Fairfax County.
As a track and field coach, her girl’s teams amassed 13 District Championships, two Regional Championships and a State Championship. Her teams were well rounded and always ready to compete in the championship meets at the end of the season.
Carolyn left W.T. Woodson in 1985 to help coach the women’s team at George Mason University. She helped Mason win numerous Conference Championships and coached a couple of All-Americans. She is enshrined in the George Mason Athletic Hall of Fame.
Carolyn left the area in 1994 but returned to award the medals at the first Legard Relays in 1996. Carolyn passed away in 2004 but her impact on female sports continues to this day. Carolyn Legard was inducted into W.T. Woodson Hall of Fame in 2019.
