Western Rewind

1982 – The Mustang Track and field Challenge held at Thompson Arena was the site of 17 record breaking performances.

Some of the big Western performances of the day included the work of Sue French, Linda Orr, Mary Jeam Pennie and Sue Boley on the Mustang's 4x800 metre team, which shattered the provincial and national record with a 9:10.5 run. All four runners qualified for the CIAU standard with the run.

In the 300 m Western's Giselle Plantz won with a record-setting 39.5, shaving a quarter of a second of the old mark.

Dave Malloy won the men's 300 m with a record time of 35.5.

The men's 4x400 m consisting of Walt Basic, John Theofilaktidis also, Malloy and Jeff Glass set a new record with a time of 3:22.5.

In the most exciting race of the meet the women's 4x400 m relay team was disqualified for interference after a miracle come from behind victory.

Western came second on both the women's and men's side. The men's competition was won by the Southwestern Ontario Selects while Michigan State stole the team event on the women's track.
