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
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
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.
