THREE SPARTANS EARN PERSONAL BESTS AT SPARTANS POLE VAULT CHALLENGE

LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western's Chloe Alkema (White Rock, B.C.), Makaila Lapointe (Abbotsford, B.C.) and Glen Johnston (South Surrey, B.C.) all posted personal bests at the Spartans Pole Vault Challenge Saturday at the David E. Enarson Gym.

Alkema cleared 3.35m, which bettered her previous best of 3.33m. Lapointe soared well above her previous record, clearing 3.05m, which was nearly half a metre better than her old mark of 2.60m.

On the men's side, Glen Johnston cleared a record 4.25m, which topped his previous mark of 4.19m.

The Spartans Kirsten Dunford (Bellingham, Wash.) had the best result of the day on the women's side as she cleared 3.80m, while Maddy Evans (Calgary) went over the bar at 3.65m.

On the men's side David Boyd (Victoria) and Maxime Léveillé (Shefford, Que) both went over 4.40m while Chris Weiss cleared 4.10m.

All of Saturday's results are unofficial, as the pole vault pit in the David E. Enarson Gym does not meet regulations to allow for a sanctioned event.

The Spartans will now prepare for the Canada West championships Feb. 24-25 in Regina.
