EDMONTON – Trinity Western’s Regan Yee (South Hazelton, B.C.) earned a silver medal in the 3000m to earn the Spartans their first podium finish of the U SPORTS championships Friday at the University of Alberta’s Universiade Pavillion.   After leading for much of the race, Yee was out-kicked by the Canadian Olympian Gabriela Stafford over the last lap, before holding on to win silver with a time of 9:20.03. Despite the second-place finish, Yee bettered her gold medal-winning time from last year by more than 17 seconds (9:37.12). Stafford didn’t race in the 3000m at last year’s championship meet.   Yee will compete against Stafford again on Saturday in the 1500m.   On the men’s side, medal hopeful Nathan George (Coquitlam, B.C.) fell just shy of the podium after he finished fourth in the 300m with a time of 34.35 in the final.   In the final race of his university career, Calum Innes (Bearsden, Scotland) just missed out on a bronze medal in the 60m hurdles as he crossed the line fourth in 8.25, which saw just 0.004 behind third place. Innes returned to the track this year after not competing last season.   In the field, Canada West silver-medallist Stephen Humphrey (Abbotsford, B.C.) had another strong showing in high jump, clearing 2.01m to finish fourth.   On the women’s side, Maddy Evans (Calgary) posted a personal best in pole vault, clearing 3.82m for fifth overall.   As a team, TWU’s men are sixth with 20 points, while the women are ninth with 13.5 points.   The men’s and women’s teams continue the U SPORTS championships Saturday.   TEAM STANDINGS: AFTER DAY 2 Men 1.
