Huskies host Saint Mary's Open meet, break four school records

In their last competition before the AUS Championships, the Huskies played host to the 2023 Saint Mary's Open at the Canada Games Centre in Halifax. Rounding into form at the right time, four school records were broken throughout the day with multiple personal bests.

Fifth-year athlete, Andrew Peverill (Lower Sackville, NS), made his last home meet in a Huskies singlet worthwhile as Peverill would lead wire-to-wire in the 1000m, winning in a U SPORTS Auto Qualifying time of 2:23.43. His time (converted to 2:21.48) ranks Peverill #1 in U SPORTS this year in the event and breaks his previous school record from 2019. It also breaks the Nova Scotia indoor provincial record of 2:23.70 set in 2012 by Olympian Geoff Harris.

Two hours later, Peverill would bounce back to race the 600m, breaking another school record on-route to a fourth place finish. His time of 1:21.44 breaks the previous Saint Mary's record (1:24.26), set in 2010 by Sidney Doucette.

On the sprints side, Andy MacMullin (Boisdale, NS) continued his breakout season, lowering his own school record even further in the 300m. Taking second place, MacMullin crossed the line in a blistering time of 35.50, breaking his previous record from three weeks ago of 36.14. This ranks MacMullin 19th in the U SPORTS rankings for the 300m.

The sprinters were not done there, with the women's 4x200m relay team breaking their school record yet again. The relay team, composed of Lily Wylie (Yarmouth, NS), Megan King (Halifax, NS), Kelly MacInnis (Sydney, NS) and Mackenzie Roach (Cheticamp, NS), would go on to stop the clock in a time of 1:53.21, setting them up well for the AUS Championships in two weeks time.

The personal bests were flying in throughout the meet, with a number of those athletes securing top three finishes. Nikola Kriznar (Halifax, NS) took the win in the 60m in a personal best time of 7.02 while Mackenzie Roach placed third in the 60m and 300m, running a personal best in the 300m (42.56). Joseph Stewart (Halifax, NS) placed first in the 1500m with a personal best time of 4:11.03, and Rory McGarvey (Belleville, ON) running a personal best in the 3000m (8:45.40) placing third overall.

The Huskies turn their attention to the AUS Championships, which are being held in Saint John, NB on February 24/25th. The championships will be live streamed on
