Tweedle runs at first-ever CIS race After a season of highs and lows, Tweedle managed to prevail as the lone Marauder on the National stage

Despite an injury-plagued end to the track season, Jeff Tweedle is more than happy with its outcome. The third-year Civil Engineering student was the lone Marauder to race in the CIS championships in Windsor earlier this month, and prior to that he became the McMaster record-holder in the men’s 1000m in emphatic fashion.

The Marauders track team posted several personal best times at the largest indoor track meet of the year, the McGill Team Challenge.

Marauders track prepares for season ahead

After a disappointing end to their cross country season, the Marauders track team is back and more motivated than ever to prove themselves on the track. Last summer, several Marauders on both the men’s and women’s side were able to get huge personal best times in their respective distance, so the expectations heading into this indoor season are very high. While some athletes did not perform to their potential at the Can Am...
