Nuttall soars to gold

For the second straight year, Emma Nuttall has captured the gold medal in the high jump at the Aviva England Athletics U23 championships.

The Scottish high jumper — who also competes with the Trinity Western Spartans track and field team — cleared a personal best 1.86m at the meet in Bedford, England over the weekend.

One of her Spartan teammates, Hazel Ross, was also at the meet, competing in the U20 division.

Ross won bronze in the high jump, clearing 1.67m. She was also eighth in the 100m hurdles after posting a personal best of 14.35 in the heats.

Both athletes return to Langley for their second year of CIS eligibility in the fall.
