March 8, 2013, Edmonton, AB (ISN) – The Trinity Western women’s 4x200m relay team stole the Spartans spotlight on the first day of competition at the CIS championships.

The relay team became the first TWU foursome to qualify for a national final Thursday evening at the University of Alberta’s Universiade Pavilion.

The Spartans relay team finished sixth in the preliminaries with a time of 1:42.17 and will now compete in the final, which will feature seven teams, Saturday at 2:15 p.m. MT.

Trinity Western’s group, which won a bronze medal at the Canada West championships, included Maya Daly (Ajax, Ont.), Anastasia Pearse (Victoria), Hazel Ross (Bishopton, Scotland) and Liza Whitehead (Surrey, B.C.).

Along with running the anchor leg for the relay team, Whitehead also competed in the 60m dash Thursday, finishing seventh overall with a time of 7.66 in both the preliminaries and the final.

On the men’s side, first-year Nathan George (Coquitlam, B.C.) was the lone competitor for the Spartans Thursday as he ran in the 60m dash, finishing 11th overall after posting a preliminary time of 7.11.
