Peverill, MacMullin break school records at Athletics NS Open meet

The Saint Mary's Huskies Men's and Women's Track & Field teams were back in action on Saturday, Jan. 21, with their first competition after the holiday break.

Competing on home soil at the Canada Games Centre, the Huskies wasted no time smashing school records and further upping themselves individually in the U SPORTS and AUS rankings.

Starting off the day in a big way was fifth-year athlete, Andrew Peverill (Lower Sackville, NS), smashing his previous school record in the 3000m and running the third fastest time in the country this year, crossing the line in a time of 8:07.58.

Later on, Andy MacMullin (Boisdale, NS) got the Canada Games Centre rocking again with another school record, this time in the 300m, breaking the 18-year-old record set in 2005 with a time of 36.14. This ranks MacMullin with the fastest time in the AUS so far this season and 27th in the country.

The "personal best" train kept rolling throughout the day as Mackenzie Roach (Cheticamp, NS) flew to a new PB in the 60m and 300m with times of 8.14 and 42.71, ranking her 6th and 5th in the events in the AUS, respectively. Following up closely behind in the 300m was Megan King (Halifax, NS), running a new PB in a time of 46.43.

Innis MacMullin (Boisdale, NS) also battled hard in the 600m, narrowly missing the school record by a half-second, running a 1:24.90, good for 4th in the conference this season. In the 60m Hurdles, Braden Marshall (Fall River, NS) ran a 9.77, also good for 4th in the conference, and in the Long Jump, Nikola Kriznar (Halifax, NS) jumped a 6.34m, and tied his personal best with another 7.08 in the 60m, ranking him 4th in the AUS.

On the distance side, Teagan Scott (Barrington, NS) crossed the line in the 1500m with a new PB of 4:13.16 and Alexandra Campbell (Vancouver, BC) crossed the line in the 1000m with a time of 3:12.13.

The Huskies quickly return to competition the coming week as they travel to Saint John, New Brunswick to compete in the UNB Invitational on Friday and Saturday, January 27-28.
