They ran.

They jumped.

They threw.

Saskatchewan conquered. The Huskies won the men’s and women’s titles.

Head coaches Ivan Tam and Scott St. Pierre had 14 assistants plus a team manager. Rhonda Shishkin led the medical support staff. On championship weekend the Max Bell field house was Green and White all over.

The finalists in women’s sprints and hurdles saw mostly just the back of Karlyn Serby and Andrea Vinet. In a men’s distance race, Matt Scobie had a message for the chase pack. See you later.

In throws, Mark Kindrachuk, Jeff Piercy, Megan Reid and Jennifer Brown threw their weight around.

Amber Mosewich turned on the afterburners in the 600. Kelsie Hendry and Adrianne Vangool went 1-2 in the pole vault, Hendry going higher than anyone had ever gone before. Katie Rooks broke her personal best in the 600 and double dipped in the relays. Rooks ran leadoff with Serby, Mosewich and Erica Poole in the 4x4, which was won by the Huskies, and was third in the 4x8 with Barb Hunter, Jennifer Souter and Ashley Hinther.

The men’s pentathlon looked like an intra-squad meet. Corey Armstrong of the Huskies was first, Cole Webster of the Huskies second, Marc Baron of the Huskies third.

The team of Scobie, Iain McCormick, Jeff Rhinas and Matt Johnson won the 4x800. Rookie Graeme Rinholm had the strut of a seasoned sprinter. With points by high jumper Kris Blacklaws and pole vaulter Rob Hanson, Saskatchewan was in the clear.
