Spartans top podium at Canadian championships

The Trinity Western University track and field team put together an impressive showing at the 2015 Canadian championships, as the Spartans contingent, both past and present, left Edmonton with seven medals, including three gold, one silver, and three bronze.

Current Spartans Caleb De Jong and Madison Evans both nabbed gold medals in their respective junior competitions, as De Jong finished first in the 3000m steeplechase with a personal best time of 9:18.05, while Evans earned top spot in pole vault with a clearance of 3.70 metres.

The Spartans Katelynn Ramage also made her way onto the podium as she finished second in the senior 10,000m race walk in 50:15.17, while junior pole vaulter Emma Li picked up a bronze medal after clearing 3.69 metres.

Amongst the Spartans recently graduated senior competitors, Fiona Benson continued her brilliant run of 800m success as she won the Canadian title with a time of 2:08.52, while fellow TWU graduate Sabrina Nettey won long jump bronze with a season’s best mark of 6.29m.

Nathan George, who recently finished his third year at TWU, just missed the podium as he finished fourth in the 400m in 47.17 seconds.
