NUTTALL BREAKS CIS RECORD TO LEAD SPARTANS WOMEN TO THIRD PLACE

EDMONTON – Trinity Western’s Emma Nuttall (Edinburgh, Scotland) set a CIS record in the high jump as she cleared a personal best and Spartans record 1.88m en route to winning gold at the national championships and, in doing so, helped the TWU women’s team to an all-time best third place finish.

Full meet results.

Along with Nuttall’s effort, the Spartans Sarah Inglis (Falkirk, Scotland) also earned a gold medal with a personal best and Spartans record Saturday, as she finished in top spot in the 1500m in 4:22.15.

Nuttall, who won Canada West gold two weeks ago, bettered the previous CIS mark of 1.87m, which was set by Tami Lutz of UBC in 1986. The Spartans high jumper now owns both the CIS and Canada West records as she set the conference mark at 1.85m in 2013. In three years competing at the CIS level, she now has two CIS gold medals (2012 and 2014) and one CIS silver (2013) in high jump.

“It was such a relief,” exclaimed Nuttall. “I knew I had that jump in me. I really wanted to come in here this weekend, win gold and set the record. I wanted it at the Canada West championships, but it wasn’t meant to be then. It was a wee bit nerve-wracking, but once I got the support of the crowd tonight, I really fed off that energy, and I knew I could make the jump.”

As for Inglis, her first place effort in the 1500m equaled her gold medal performance at this year’s Canada West championships. Her winning time broke the TWU record of 4:22.97, which was set by Fiona Benson (Dawson Creek, B.C.) last year.

As a team, the women’s side, who captured the school’s first ever track and field Canada West championship two weeks ago, scored a school record 64 points, bettering its previous mark of 39.25 points, which it scored at last year’s national championships.

On the men’s side, the Spartans, who had a fifth place finish in the 4x200m relay in 1:28.76 Saturday, finished a best ever 11th overall with 22 points. Last year, TWU had eight points and finished 17th while its best finish prior to this weekend was in 2012, when the Spartans finished 15th overall with nine points.

“Like I’ve said many times, we’re happy, but not yet satisfied,” said Spartans coach Laurier Primeau. “But now is the time to rejoice in the phenomenal performances that we had.

“I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say that I’m really happy with our trajectory. We’re moving in the right direction. And we’re looking forward to continue building and continue getting better as we have some great recruits coming in and we lose virtually no CIS points to graduation.”

All told, the Spartans collected four CIS gold medals (Nuttall, Innis, Benson [1000m] and Sabrina Nettey [long jump]), one silver medal (Nathan George [300m]) and one bronze medal (James Linde [long jump]).
