SEATTLE – For the second week in a row, Trinity Western's David Boyd (Victoria) broke the Spartans men's pole vault record as he cleared 5.02m at the UW Invitational Saturday at Dempsey Indoor.
Already, the U SPORTS pole vault leader, Boyd bettered the TWU all-time mark and his own person record by one centimetre after setting the record last weekend when he cleared 5.01m.
On the track, Ben Tjernagel (Coquitlam, B.C.) put together a season's best in the 60m with a time of 6.97 to finish 15th. Also in the 60m, Rachel Jerome (Ladysmith, B.C.) had a season's best 7.96 to finish 29th overall.
Mirelle Martens (Grande Prairie, Alta.), who won Canada West bronze in the 3000m last year, ran her first 3000m of the season, crossing the line in 9:51.21 (51st).
The Spartans will compete in the Harry Jerome Indoor Classic Feb. 2nd at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
