CANADA WEST TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIP DAY 1 RESULTS2014-02-21

Four records fell during Day 1 of the 2014 Canada West track and field championships, held in the Universiade Pavilion at the University of Alberta, and the defending champion Calgary Dinos hold the lead in the women’s standings while the Trinity Western Spartans have a slim edge in the men’s standings.

Day 2 gets underway at 11:30 am MT. All athletes meeting the CIS standard this weekend will advance to the 2014 CIS championships, which will be held March 6-8 and will also be hosted by the University of Alberta.

LIVE RESULTS

The Calgary women’s team amassed 60 points after the initial day of competition came to a close, putting them seven points clear of second place Trinity Western, while the Saskatchewan Huskies hold down third place with 46 points. On the men’s side, TWU sits in first with 35 points, but the Victoria Vikes are right on TWU’s heels, with 33 points. The Regina Cougars and Manitoba Bisons are each tied for third place with 28 points.

A quartet of student-athletes entered the Canada West record book on Friday night in Edmonton, as Taryn Suttie, Calum Innes, Jenna Westaway and Sabrina Nettey all set new conference records in their respective disciplines. First, in the women’s shot put, Saskatchewan’s Suttie, who also holds the CIS record, broke the 1989 Canada West established mark of 15.36, which was set by former Huskie Shannon Kekukka, by throwing for a distance of 16.05 m. Back in the Canada West throwing circle after two years of training with the Canadian national team, Suttie will now head to the CIS championship as the No.1 ranked shot putter, and the odds on favourite to win gold.

Trinity Western’s Sabrina Nettey broke the next record, when she jumped 6.32 in the long jump, which bested the mark of 6.10m set by Vanessa Monar, of the U of S, in 1993.

Jenna Westaway, the 2013 CIS Track Athlete of the Year, then broke a 26-year old record when she crossed the line in 1,000m race with a time of 2:44.55. Trish Wellman, of the University of Victoria, had held the previous record with a time of 2:45.10, which was set in 1988.

Calum Innes, the Scottish born hurdler and sprinter for the TWU Spartans, claimed the final record of the night as he blew away the field in the 60m hurdles, winning with a time of 7.94. That time bested the 7.99 laid down by former Manitoba Bison Jared MacLeod in 2002. Innes, the 2013 Canada West Outstanding Track Performer, has now won consecutive Canada West gold medals in the 60m hurdles, and will head to the CIS championships looking to improve upon the silver he earned last season.

Calgary’s Rachel Machin, the 2013 CIS Track and Field Athlete of the Year, was the darling of Day 1, as she climbed onto the podium three times, including silver medals in the pentathlon and long jump. Teammate Rachel McIntosh picked up a pair of medals, including gold in the pentathlon as the Dinos look to defend their conference crown. In fact, the southern Alberta squad finished 1-2-3 in the women’s pent, scoring huge points to help them to their Day 1 advantage.

On the men’s side, the Spartans raced to the pole position in the standings thanks to gold medal performances in the 60m hurdles (Innes), the 300m race, courtesy Nathan George, and the 3,000m race which Declan White won. Trinity Western also medaled in the 4 x 800m relay and the long jump.

Day 2 of the 2014 Canada West track and field championships begins at 11:30 am MT in the Universiade Pavilion in Edmonton.
