Personal best, near school record for Langley's Georgia Ellenwood in first pentathlon of the season

Georgia Ellenwood is off to a fast start.

In her first pentathlon of the year, the Langley sophomore on the University of Wisconsin track and field team set a new personal best with 4,295 points at the Jack Jennett Invitational in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

She just missed setting a new school record by four points.

Ellenwoo set indoor personal bests in four of the five pentathlon events and her score was the fourth-best score in the NCAA this season.

The meet was held on Jan. 29 and resulted in Ellenwood being named the Big Ten Athlete of the Week last week.

Ellenwood is a highly-decorated track and field athlete from Langley Secondary who competed with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club. She has also represented Canada at various international meets.
