McGill track team’s relay squad finishes fifth at Armory meet in New York


McGill’s relay squad, passing the baton

NEW YORK, N.Y. – As expected, the McGill track and field relay squads posted the team’s best results at the Armory Invitational meet in New York City, Jan. 30-31.
The annual meet attracts many of the top NCAA programs in the northeast, as well as many CIS schools.
The Redmen 4×400-metre relay finished fifth overall, crossing the line in three minutes, 18.21 seconds, which bettered the qualification standard for the CIS championships, Mar. 12-14 in Windsor, Ont. That said, the group was a fraction of a second slower (,22) than their fastest time, which was posted at the McGill Team Challenge held the previous week (3:17.99). The quartet was composed of freshman Ryan McLelland of Toronto in the leadoff leg, followed by senior Steven Murray of Burlington, Ont., junior Vincent Parent-Pichette of St. Paul de Joliette, Que., and Javier Montalvo, a junior from Closter, N.J.
The McGill 4x800m came in sixth at 8:16.18 but still needs to shave time off that in order to qualify for Nationals (7:41.51). The group included Ethan Wilkinson of Langley, B.C., Cody Rountree of St. Bruno, Que., Christian Favreau of Vancouver, B.C., and Benjamin Forestell of Huntsville, Ont.
On the women’s side, McGill’s highest-placed finishers were Evelyn Anderson of Calgary and Melanie Myrand of Lachine, Que.
Anderson, a management senior, was 23rd in the 1000m with a time of 2:58.59, about 10 seconds shy of the CIS standard. Myrand, a master’s student in nursing, placed 25th in the 3000m, finishing in 9:57.66, roughly 18 seconds short of the standard.
McGill’s best finisher in each event is posted in the chart below.
Three meets remain on the McGill schedule before the CIS championships, the uOttawa Winter Invitational on Feb. 7, the Redmen Classic (Feb. 15), and the RSEQ championships in Sherbrooke (Feb. 28 – Mar. 1).
