MONTREAL — The York Lions and Toronto Varsity Blues claimed the respective men’s and women’s titles at the 20th annual McGill Team Challenge track and field meet at Richard Tomlinson Fieldhouse, Saturday.

The two-day competition, billed as the largest indoor track meet in Canada, attracted 749 athletes and 19 CIS institutions. Among the highlights were two Quebec provincial records, five new meet standards, two fieldhouse marks and one McGill record.

McGill captured five medals, including one gold, a two silvers and a pair of bronzes.

Their lone gold medal was claimed by the Redmen 4x200m relay squad, clocked in 3:17.99, just shy of the team record (3:17.83). The winning foursome included Ryan McClelland, Steven Murray, Vincent Parent-Pichette, Javier Montalvo

Dylan Golow broke his own McGill record, scoring 3,597 points to finish second in the men’s pentathlon. His previous personal best was 3,571 set in Quebec City last February. Riley van Ryswyk of Surrey, B.C., placed second in the men’s pole vault, clearing a height of 4.83 metres to meet the qualifying standard for the CIS championships, March 12-14, at Windsor, Ont. The 5-foot-11, 150-pound electrical engineering senior just missed the McGill record of 4.85 set in 2011 by Maxime Beaumont-Courteau.

Teammate Caila Kucheravy, an accounting junior from Winnipeg, was third in the women’s long jump with a leap of 5.63m, shy of the McGill record of 5.72 held since 1992 by Kristen Fry and the CIS qualifying standard of 5.88.

Also finishing on the podium for the Martlets was Helena Reinfels, a third-year geography major from Puslinch, Ont., who scored 3,146 points for a third-place finish in the women’s pentathlon. The school record is 3,515 set by Alana Battiston in 2013.

Laval’s Charles Philibert-Thiboutot, a 24-year-old middle-distance runner from Quebec City, accounted for a whopping six records. He finished atop the podium in the men’s 1,000 metres, establishing a Quebec senior record, along with fieldhouse and meet marks in a sizzling two minutes, 21.02 seconds. He erased the previous provincial mark of 2:22.09, set by Tommy Lecours in Winnipeg on March 9, 2012. Philibert-Thiboutot also smashed the Quebec, fieldhouse and meet records in the 1500m, crossing the line in 3:43.21.

Among other marks to tumble was in the women’s 4×200 relay, won by the Western Mustangs in 1:40.48, with a fousome composed of Joy Spear Chief-Morris of Lethbridge, Alta., in the leadoff leg, followed by Jen Barbon of London, Ont., Sarah Clancy of Toronto and Rachael Muma of St. Thomas, Ont. They surpssed the previous mark of 1:40.74 held by another Western quartet since 2013.

In the race for the men’s team scoring title, York amassed 104 points to edge Guelph by a slim margin of two and win the meet for the fourth time in two decades.Laval was third with 95, followed by Toronto (69), Dalhousie (54.75) McGill (41.75), Sherbrooke (35.5), Western (33), Ottawa (28.75), McMaster (27), UNB (23.25), Queen’s (11), St.FX (8), Carleton (7); Universite d’Orleans (France) (5), Saint Mary’s (2), Moncton (2) and Concordia (1).

On the women’s side, Toronto cruised to an easy victory with 103.5 points. Guelph placed second again, collecting 81, for a one point edge on Dalhousie (80). Western was fourth with 61, followed by Sherbrooke (53), York (53), Laval (49.5), Ottawa (37), McGill (26.5), UQAO (20), UNB (19), St.FX (18), Montreal (13), Moncton (12.5), McMaster (11), Saint Mary’s (3), Queen’s (3), Concordia (2) and Laurentian (2).
