Early Friday afternoon in the heats, Innes (Bearsden Glasgow, Scotland) ran a personal best time of 8.20 – bettering his previous PB of 8.22, which he achieved twice this year, most recently at the 2012 Canada West championships – but then was even faster in the final, stopping the clock at the 8.19 that earned him fourth place.
In his first season competing at the university level, Innes also earned a gold medal at the conference championships.

The first-year Ross was four one-hundredths of a second off of her personal best time and Spartans record of 8.90, which she achieved at this year’s Canada West championships while finishing fourth.
