INGLIS, RELAY TEAMS SPARK SPARTANS AT VANDAL OPEN

MOSCOW, Idaho – Trinity Western middle distance runner Sarah Inglis (Falkirk, Scotland) led the Spartans track and field team Saturday as she clocked a school record in the 1000m, while both men’s and women’s 4x400m teams also posted all-time bests at the Vandal Open at Kibbie Dome.

On a day when the Spartans set six school records for the second day in a row, Inglis finished first in the 1000m with a time of 2:47.75, which is the second fastest in the CIS this year. Her time bettered the previous TWU record of 2:52.39, which was set by Fiona Benson (Dawson Creek, B.C.) last year. Inglis, who was already ranked atop the CIS individual rankings in the 1500m and 3000m is now in the top two in the country in all three national championship middle distances.

“The highlight of the meet was definitely Sarah’s result in the 1000m,” said Spartans coach Laurier Primeau. “We also had some other impressive performances, so we’re coming home pleased with where we are heading as a team. But as happy as we are with these results, the job is far from complete as we continue to work towards excellence.”

After the Spartans set school records in four relays Friday – both the men’s and women’s 4x200m and 4x800m teams posted program bests – it was the 4x400m teams’ turn Saturday. The women’s 4x400m team finished second in 3:54.18 while the men’s team won its race in 3:20.89. The previous TWU best on the women’s side was 4:02.32, which was set last year, while the men’s record was 3:22.75, which was set in 2003.

The Spartans also had record-breaking individual performances from Mihai Prajea (Calgary) in the 1000m and James Linde (Coquitlam, B.C.) in long jump.

Prajea won the 1000m in 2:28.66 to better the previous TWU mark of 2:28.85, which was set by Ian Sharp in 2002. Linde beat his own Spartans record with a jump of 6.90m, which was good for second place. His previous TWU record was 6.86m.

Pole Vaulter Nathan Dunford (Bellingham, Wash.) equaled his own TWU record with a vault of 4.70m.

In the throwing circle, the Spartans Ralph Alvaro (Surrey, B.C.) became the first TWU men’s athlete to ever compete in the weight throw, so his throw of 9.25m, which placed him 23rd overall, puts him in the Spartans record book.
