This past weekend, 8 selected athletes competed at the McGill Team Challenge in Montreal. The Huskies showed well with multiple athletes smashing personal bests.

Matthew Musoke had an extraordinary weekend competing in the heptathlon, which is 7 events over 2 days. Musoke won the university division with a total of 4519 points, ranking him 3rd in the CIS! While the overall event was a personal best in points, Musoke also competed to a personal best in the long jump with 6.41 metres, high jump at 1.90 metres, pole vault at 3.10 metres, and 1000m in 3:02.60.

Meghan Clark and Jonathan Peverill both raced to personal bests in the 1000m and 1500m. Clark crossed the line in 3:07.51 in the 1000m and 4:57.30 in the 1500m, while placing 2nd in both of her heats. Peverill crossed the line in 2:37.91 in the 1000m, winning his heat by .01 of a second, and finished in 4:13.56 in the 1500m.

Drew LeFrank and Corwin Trottier both finished with personal bests in the 600m. LeFrank crossed the line in 1:25.71 and Trottier in 1:28.70, with both athletes finishing 6th in their respective heats. Both athletes also competed in the 1000m, along with Ian MacDonald, who also raced to a personal best in the 1500m with a time of 4:29.50.
