Trinity Westernâ€™s menâ€™s track and field hurdler Calum Innes opened the indoor season by winning the 60m hurdles at the University of Washington Preview Saturday at Dempsey Indoor.
Innes crossed the line in a time of 8.07 seconds, beating a field made up entirely of NCAA Division I athletes.
The Spartansâ€™ James Linde also put together a strong opening meet effort as he finished third in the long jump with a jump of 7.01 metres and 14th in the 60m in 6.99 seconds.
Second-year pole vaulter Nathan Dunford came within five metres of the Spartansâ€™ record, which he holds, after clearing 5.80 metres to finish ninth overall.
The Spartans are back on the track next weekend as they will compete in the University of Idahoâ€™s Vandal Invitational Jan. 23 and the Washington State Open Jan. 24.
