The University of Saskatchewan Huskies qualified 21 athletes to compete at the 2014 CIS Track & Field Championship hosted by the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

Leading the charge for the Huskies is fourth-year Taryn Suttie in throws, sprinters Michelle Young and Kenrick Hanna, as well as fifth-year middle distance runner Amanda Banks.

Suttie, who returned to the Huskies and the CIS after two years training with the national team, set a Canada West record in the shot put tossing 15.36-metres. She also holds the CIS record set in 2010-11. Also competing in weight throw, Suttie ranks No. 1 in shot put and second in weight throw.

Hanna and Young made splashes at the Canada West Championship each setting Huskie records in the 60-metre events. Hanna finished with gold in a time of 6.69 breaking the 2010 record held by Olympian Graeme Rinholm, while Young ran the race in 7.57 for silver breaking the 1987 record. Young also won gold in the 60-metre hurdles. Hanna enters the CIS Championship ranked No. 1 in the event, while Young enters the hurdles ranked No. 1 and the 60-metre dash ranked No. 3.

Banks will look to have solid performances in her final CIS Championship. In 2012-13, Banks had to pull out of races due to injury. She will look for success in the 600-metre and 1000-metres.

Also providing CIS Championship experience for the Huskies will be Lauren Taylor (pentathlon), Cole Digel (pentathlon), Nolan Machiskinic (throws) and Davis Guenther (distance)

Saskatchewan enters the CIS Championship ranked No. 4 in the CIS on the women’s side and unranked in men’s.
