Huskies post solid results, break two school records at UNB Invitational

In one of the season's biggest tune-ups before the AUS Championships, the Huskies Women's and Men's Track & Field teams were in Saint John, NB to compete in the UNB University Invitational.

Spread over two days, the meet was highlighted with two new school records, a U SPORTS Auto Qualifying time, and multiple personal bests from the maroon and white.

Friday evening kicked off the first day of competition, with the Huskies women's 4x200m relay team (Lily Wylie, Megan King, Kelly MacInnis and Mackenzie Roach) breaking the SMU school record in a time of 1:55.49, placing 3rd in the event.

On Saturday, yet another school record was broken, this time in the men's Mile, with Andrew Peverill winning the Dave Thomas Mile in a time of 4:06.30. This converts to a 1500m time of 3:44.97, auto-qualifying Peverill for the U SPORTS Championships in the event.

The Huskies had several athletes compete to personal bests, and also included a 2nd place finish for the men's 4x200m relay team (Andy MacMullin, Innis MacMullin, Jeffrey Smith and Jaden Storry-Trefry) in a time of 1:36.49. The following athletes recorded PB's over the meet:

The Huskies are back home to host the 2023 Saint Mary's Open on Saturday, February 11th at the Canada Games Centre in Halifax. This will be the last competition before the AUS Championships take place back in Saint John, N.B. at the end of February.
