George, Inglis lead TWU medal charge

Spartan track and field athletes return with podium finishes, meet and program records

Nathan George and Sarah Inglis both made their CIS national championship standard with record-breaking performances.

George was golden in the 300m event, setting a new meet record of 34.93 in the process, while Inglis won gold in the 1000m event with a time of 2:45.94 while breaking her own school record.

The pair were among the Trinity Western Spartans track and field athletes competing over the weekend at the 13th annual Washington State Open.

The medals were just a fraction of the haul the TWU athletes won.

Declan White (1000m), Maya Daly (300m) and Claudette Allen (long jump) also won gold in their respective events.

And in the one-mile race, it was a TWU clean sweep with Fiona Bensen taking gold, Inglis winning silver and Regan Yee crossing the finish line in third. All three also beat the previous meet record, which had been held by Benson.

George also helped the Spartans win gold in both the 4×200 (George, Calum Innes, Nick Ayin, James Linde) and 4×400 (Jamie Sinclair, Andrew DeGroot, George, Linde) events.

The Spartans also had a clean sweep of the podium in the 4×800 event, with gold going to Declan White, Joel De Schiffart, Blair Johnston and Caleb DeJong.

On the women’s side, Claudette Allen, Sabrina Nettey, Robyn Waer and Emma Li won gold in the 4×200 and Madison Evans, Meg Harradine, Rachel Shuttleworth and Anastasia Pearse won gold in the 4×400.

Other individual medal winners included:

James Linde (silver, 60m); David Boyd (silver, 300m), Joel De Schiffart (silver, one mile), Calum Innes (silver, 60mh), Nathan Dunford (silver, pole vault), Claudette Allen (bronze, 60mh) and Sabrina Nettey (silver, long jump).
