Nuttall shines for Langley-based Spartans at Washington meet

Emma Nuttall not only won gold at the Cougar Indoor Invitational, she equalled a six-year-old record in the process.

Trinity Western high jumper Emma Nuttall equaled the meet record at the Washington State University Cougar Indoor Invitational as she finished first with a clearance of 1.75m Saturday.

Nuttall was one of four Spartans to win their event on Saturday. Regan Yee topped the 800m field in 2:12.87, Langley’s Meg Harradine was first in the 600m in 1:38.56 and Mirelle Martens won the mile in 4:52.33.

The record Nuttall tied is also held by Washington State University’s Holly Parent, who set it in 2010.

The Spartans will now prepare for the University of Washington’s Husky Classic Feb. 12-13 and the University of Washington Indoor Open Feb. 14.
