RECAP : Season bests abound as competition heats up

Elizabeth Moreland competes in triple jump.

The Gee-Gees track and field team competed at two meets this past weekend, first stopping in Toronto for the Hal Brown meet, hosted by the University of Toronto, and then competing at the Guelph Open.  

HAL BROWN RECAP 

The women's 4x800 metre relay squad of Hannah Frazer, Frédérique Bell, Kylee Fowler, and Sydney Smith topped the field in Toronto, beating teams from Toronto, Queen's, and York. 

Individually, Smith was third in the 600m finishing behind Sadie Jane Hickson of Guelph and Jazz Shukla of Toronto who rank first and third nationally, respectively, with their top times of the season in the 600m. Smith's time of 1:32.01 is a new personal best (Hal Brown is a flat track event); converted to 1:30.91 Smith ranks sixth nationally. Frazer also placed third in the 1000m event.

The men's 4x800m relay team took third place with André Alie-Lamarche, Jackson Roy, David Moulongou, and Fabrice Nonez crossing the line at 8:37.86. Alie-Lamarche also won the men's 1500 metre event, while Moulongou grabbed second place in the 300m and Roy was second in the 3000m.

GUELPH OPEN RECAP 

In addition to David Moulongou and Emma Martins being the top Gee-Gees sprint finishers for the second straight day, the Guelph Open was focussed largely on the field events.  

Elizabeth Moreland recorded a season-best by clearing 1.53 metre in the high jump, improving on the previous week's performance by three centimetres.  

In men's triple jump, Jackson Colquhoun's measurement of 13.55 lands him a Top 20 national ranking and was a thirty centimetre improvement on his result at York the previous week. At Guelph he also improved on his long jump, recording a season-best of 6.08 metres.
