SFU tracksters shine in California

The SFU track and field team shone as brightly as the California sunshine at a trio of meets in the Golden state.

Jessica Smith and Helen Crofts finished second and third in the 800m at the Mt. SAC relays. Both posted times good enough to qualify them for the NAIA National Championships, as did senior Brianna Kane.

Sprinter Andrea Abrams ran a personal best of 14.80 in the 100m, which was also good enough to get her to nationals.

Jade Richardson's throw of 46.49m in the discus also qualified her for the nationals.

On the men's side, Andrew Boss finished 18th in the 400m with a time of 48.81 at the Long Beach Invitational while Brett Montrose set a personal best with a time 49.54.

The Clan will be hosting the SFU/UBC Dual Meet April 27 at Terry Fox Field.
