Spartan sprinters speed to medals

Trinity Western University student/athlete Nathan George continues to set a lofty standard for the Spartans track and field team.

The second-year sprinter from Coquitlam finished amongst the top two in all three of his races in California over the Easter long weekend.

George ran the 400-metre event twice, clocking a time of 47.62 seconds while finishing second at the Long Beach Invitational at Cerritos College, and 47.99 in finishing first at the Bryan Clay

Invitational at Azusa Pacific University.

He also sprinted to second in the 200m at the Bryan Clay Invitational in a time of 21.58.

George was one of six Spartans performing on the outdoor track this past weekend as Calum Innes, Nathan Dunford, Emma Nuttall, Hazel Ross, and Sabrina Nettey, were also competed in California.

The Spartans’ next competition is the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association) championships May 1-3 in Rome, Georgia.
