WINNIPEG – Trinity Western's Mowa Adeleye (Calgary) won a silver medal in triple jump on the final day of the U SPORTS Track & Field Championships, equaling her personal best with a mark of 12.13m Saturday at the James Daly Fieldhouse.
On her final jump of the competition, the third-year Adeleye put together her best effort of the day to earn her first-ever U SPORTS medal and what would turn out to be TWU's only medal of the championship weekend. With her U SPORTS silver medal, Adeleye capped her season with back-to-back medal-winning performances, after earning a gold medal at the Canada West Championships with the exact same 12.13m mark.
On the men's side, fourth-year David Boyd (Victoria) finished fourth after clearing 4.85m. His effort precisely equals his 2018 U SPORTS performance as he also finished fourth with a height of 4.85m in 2018. Teammate Zach Augenstein (Hermosa Beach, Calif.) finished 11th having cleared 4.35m.
In men's triple jump, Denzel Brown (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) finished sixth overall with a mark of 13.92m.
TWU's men's team finished the U SPORTS Championships 12th overall with 20 points, while the women's team was 13th with 18 points.
All told, TWU finished with five athletes earning top five finishes, highlighted by Adeleye's silver medal and Grace Konrad's (Edmonton) TWU record-setting fifth-place finish in the 300m.
