Langley-based track athlete shines in Washington State

Trinity Western’s men’s track and field hurdler Calum Innes opened the indoor season by winning the 60m hurdles at the University of Washington Preview Saturday at Dempsey Indoor.

Innes crossed the line in a time of 8.07 seconds, beating a field made up entirely of NCAA Division I athletes.

The Spartans’ James Linde also put together a strong opening meet effort as he finished third in the long jump with a jump of 7.01 metres and 14th in the 60m in 6.99 seconds.

Second-year pole vaulter Nathan Dunford came within five metres of the Spartans’ record, which he holds, after clearing 5.80 metres to finish ninth overall.

The Spartans are back on the track next weekend as they will compete in the University of Idaho’s Vandal Invitational Jan. 23 and the Washington State Open Jan. 24.
