Spartans climb to second in CIS polls

The Trinity Western Spartans track and field team moved up one spot after an impressive showing at a meet hosted by the University of Idaho.

The Spartans set five school records and also won five gold medals and they are now ranked second in the most recent Canadian Interuniversity Sport rankings.

Liza Whitehead (60m), Rachel Shuttleworth (600m), Sarah Inglis (1000m), Hazel Ross (60m hurdles and long jump) all won their events. Regan Yee (1000m) and the women’s 4x400 relay team — consisting of Shuttleworth, Anastasia Pearse, Meg Harradine and Jordyn Visser — won silver medals.

The Spartans men set seven school records as well as winning a handful of medals.

That includes a clean sweep in the 1000m event as Mihai Prajea, Levi Neufeld and Declan White took all three spots on the podium.

Nathan Dunford (pole vault) and the 4x400 relay team (Nathan George, James Linde, Calum Innes and Prajea) also won gold.

Linde (long jump) and Jamie Sinclair (pole vault) won silver and bronze, respectively, in their events
