Peverill, Isadore win gold at day one of AUS Track & Field Championships

Day one of the AUS Track & Field Championships got underway on Friday in Saint John, NB, as the Huskies stormed out of the gates with multiple medals and records.

Andrew Peverill (3000m) and Dante Isadore (Long Jump) both secured their tickets to the U SPORTS National Championships in Saskatoon with the duo being crowned champions in their individual events. Peverill led wire-to-wire to win the 3000m in an AUS Championship record in a time of 8:12.05, taking more than six seconds off the previous record, set in 2019. Meanwhile, Isadore won the Long Jump with a distance of 6.76m.

The Huskies men's and women's 4x200m relay teams both broke school records, with the men's team taking the silver medal. The men's team (Nikola Kriznar, Keegan Hall, Innis MacMullin and Andy MacMullin) crossed the line in a time of 1:34.78, while the women's team (Lily Wylie, Megan King, Kelly MacInnis and Mackenzie Roach) went on to finish 5th in 1:51.53.

Andy MacMullin battled hard through the 3-turns of the 300m as he would cross the line in 35.74, securing the bronze medal.

After Day 1, the Men's team is sitting 2nd place in the team standings behind Dalhousie University, while the Women's team is in 7th.
