Tufford Trashes Trio of Wolves School Records at ACAC #2 Meet

In a bold coaching move, Anna van der Geissen was added to the GPRC “Men’s” 4 x 400m B team. She anchored the team to a 2nd place finish in the B heat in a time of 4:04.70.

Rookie sensation Brandon Tufford tore up the track Saturday at ACAC Indoor Track Meet #2 – The Concordia Open on Saturday in Edmonton.  Tufford established two new individual school records (300m – 37.05 – 3rd place) and (800m- 1:58.98 – 2nd place). In addition, he combined with teammates Miguel Macedo, Brice Wilkes, and Joelmanz to establish a new GPRC’s 4 x 400m record (3:41.95  – 2nd place).

Second year runner Anna van der Geissen was the other Wolves athlete to achieve a podium placing at the meet.  She established a new personal best time 1:46.59 in the 600m, good for 2nd place.

In the corrected Men’s team standings, the Wolves placed second with 44 points, three points behind the victorious Concordia University of Edmonton. With only two athletes competing, GPRC placed ninth in the Women’s team standing.

Next up for the Wolves tracksters is the ACAC Indoor Track Championships on March 15 and 16 in Calgary.
