SEATTLE – Trinity Western fifth-year Regan Yee (South Hazelton, B.C.) broke the Spartans 3000m record, clocking a program-best and U SPORTS-leading 8:58.29 to finish third overall at the University of Washington Invitational Saturday at Dempsey Indoor.
Yee, who won a silver medal in the 3000m at last year's U SPORTS championships, was bettered only by Sifan Hassan (8:34.45), who won bronze in the 5000m at last year's IAAF World Championships and gold at the 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships in the 1500m, and Shalane Flanagan (8:43.28), who is the American record-holder in the 3000m. The fifth-year Spartan also crushed her personal best of 9:07.59, which she posted at last year's Husky Classic at the University of Washington.
On the men's side, Nick Colyn (Langley, B.C.) had the top time of the day for TWU in the mile, finishing in 4:09.97. Adam Marshall (Langley) led the Spartans in the 800m, crossing in 1:54.57.
The Spartans will compete in Washington State University's Cougar Open Feb. 2-3 in Pullman, Wash.
