By Isabella Custodi, Sports Reporter

Canisius men’s and women’s track wrapped up their regular season at the Valentine Invite in Boston, MA and the Spire Institute Indoor Games in Geneva, OH, this past weekend.

At the Valentine Invite, Jules Jones took home 34th in the women’s 3000m unseeded with a time of 10:00.15. Jones beat her 3000m record by over 15 seconds. Behind Jones was Jacqueline Appenheimer in 85th with a time of 10:28.09. Schmidt, Jones, Silba and Olivia Moran raced in the women’s distance medley relay, taking home 36th with a time of 12:02.38. To finish out the Valentine Invite, Tom Appenheimer took home 67th in the men’s 5000m unseeded with a time of 14:46.22.

At Spire Institute Indoor Games, starting with the men, Max Chew took home 5th place in the men’s 3000m with a time of 8:39.90, beating his previous record by almost 5 seconds. “I personally definitely felt a bit beat up. The race was really physical and ended up being a kick off. The PR was nothing special, I can do better,” says Chew. Chew thinks the meet at Spire will better prepare him for the MAAC Championships. Royce Breslawski finished after Chew in 51st (9:40.38).

Also placing in the top 10 for the men is Arthur Harte, who competed in the men’s 300m taking home ninth place (7.62). Peyton Spartorico and Collin Rice placed consecutively in the men’s mile, Spartorico placed 14th (4:21.60) with Rice behind him in 15th (4:22.70).

For the women, Ella Herman took home sixth place in the women’s 600m (1:45.13), followed behind Jocelyn Tracy in 12th (1:53.41), Julia Hise in 14th (1:55.20), and Hope Marshall in 16th (2:01.22).

The Griffs will be back in action Feb. 24-25 at the MAAC Indoor Track and Field Championships in New York, N.Y. competing in the New Balance Track and Field Center at the Armory.
