SHERBROOKE, Que. — Javier Montalvo of Closter, N.J., struck gold three times to pace the McGill University track and field team at the RSEQ conference championships, a two-day meet held at the Pavillion Universtrie on the campus of Université de Sherbrooke, over the weekend.

The Redmen and Martlets both finished third overall, with the men’s team reaching the podium 11 times, with six gold medals, four silvers and a bronze. The McGill women produced 14 podium finishes, including one gold, seven silvers and six bronzes.
 
All gold medallists automatically qualified for the CIS championships, so from this meet alone, McGill will be sending 13 athletes, a dozen of them men, to the competition in Windsor, Ont., March 12-14.
 
Montalvo, a six-foot, 160-pound middle distance specialist, won the 300m. The political science junior crossed the line in 35.76 second. He also helped McGill sweep both the 4x200m and 4x400m relays along with relay teammate Steven Murray, a physiology senior from Burlington, Ont.
 
Murray and Caila Kucherarvy, a management junior from Winnipeg, were honoured in the post-event awards ceremony, where McGill swept the conference men’s and women’s leadership awards for best combining academic excellence with community service.
 
Claiming double gold for the Redmen was Dylan Golow of Barrie, Ont. The neuroscience senior took the long jump in 6.81 metres to go along with his victory in  the pentathlon (an event held the previous week), where he broke his own McGill record with 3,669 points.
 
The only member of the Martlets to claim gold was Helena Reinfels, a native of Puslinch, Ont., who took top spot in the women’s pentathlon with 3,345 points. It marked the first time in Quebec championship history that McGill swept both the men’s and women’s pentathlon titles. Reinfels, a geography junior, was the only McGill athlete who came close to breaking a school record. Her silver-medal time in the 300m was 40.83, missing the mark (40.26) by a fraction.

Riley van Ryswyk, an electrical engineering junior from Surrey, B.C., collected his gold in the pole vault, clearing a height of 4.53 metres.
 
Other members of the aforementioned 4×200, which crossed the finish line in 1:30.57, were Tim Kong, a science junior from Edmonton, and Ryan McClelland, an engineering freshman from Toronto. The winning 4×400 quartet, clocked in 3:20.25, also featured Ethan Wilkinson, a civil engineering sophomore from Langley, B.C., and Vincent Parent-Pichette, a physical education junior from St. Paul de Joliette, Que.

Sherbrooke was declared the RSEQ women’s team champion with 155 points in the scoring, followed by Laval (97), McGill (89) and UQAC (2). On the men’s side, Laval claimed the league banner with 154 points, followed by Sherbrooke (125) and McGill (77).
