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.
