A dramatic, record setting, come-from-behind win in the women’s 4 x 400m relay highlighted a good day for the Wolves Indoor Track team in Edmonton on Saturday at the Nike Indoor Challenge.
The quartet of Jackie Benning, Mirelle Martens, Kirstin Manz, and Jamie Wigmore established a new ACAC record in the 4 x 400m, stopping the clock in 4:16, four seconds better than the 2014 standard set by MacEwan University. The Wolves crew trailed Lethbridge College for the first three legs, before Wigmore made a dramatic move over the last 100m to seal the victory. Lethbridge also bettered the previous record, finishing 2 seconds behind the Wolves in 4:18.
The Wolves women also had three other podium finishes. Wigmore and Benning went second and third in the 1500m, recording times of 4:48 and 4:54 respectively. Martens established a new personal record time in the 3000m (10:10) while finishing second.
Wolves Athletics Club athlete Jessica Baraskewich won the 1000m, recording a time of 3:05.
