LANGLEY, B.C. - Saturday evening marked the start of the men's and women's track and field indoor season at the Spartan Indoor Pole Vault Open. The event, which runs as a one of two home pole vaulting competitions, saw both Spartan and local athletes compete at the David E. Enarson gymnasium.
It was third-year Spartan Giovanni Hernandez (Tepic, Mexico) who cleared 4.80m to win the men's side of the competition. This unofficial height improves on last year's season opening height of 4.45m, and sees Hernandez capture a personal record as a Spartan thus far.
Fourth-years Chris Weiss (West Vancouver, B.C.) and Glen Johnston (White Rock, B.C.) both cleared 4.25m.
On the girls side it was fifth-year Madison Evans (Calgary) who cleared 3.75m with teammate Emma Li (Markham, O.N.) not far behind at 3.45m.
