Sarah Inglis was better than the rest at the Washington Sundodger Invitational.

Trinity Western University’s Sarah Inglis took on a bevy of NCAA Div. I comers and beat them all at the University of Washington Sundodger Invitational, as the Spartans third-year runner took first place in the top section Saturday at Lincoln Park.

Yee crossed the line in 20:48.75 while Brooking came in at 20:53.87.

The host University of Washington was the only school to place anyone above TWU in the Invitational. The Huskies took second through fifth.

In the women’s open race, Mirelle Martens was the star of the Spartans show as she finished second overall, coming in with a time of 21:19.58 over the same six kilometre course.
