Strong performances in the short sprints and multi-events have the University of Calgary women and University of Windsor men off to a lead after Day 1 of the Canadian Inter-University Sport (CIS) Indoor National Championships.

For the Calgary women's team, Rachel McIntosh won gold in the pentathlon with 4179 points followed by teammates Rachel Machin in second with 3993 points and Nicola Charlesworth in fourth with 3686 points. In what could actually be more of a three-team competition, Toronto had Rachel Jewett, Flo Peters and Juliana Bergin also place in the penathlon while Guelph's Jessica May was eighth. Similarly in the 60m dash, Toronto's Khamica Bingham won with a time of 7.47 but Guelph's Kerry-Ann Cornwall and Calgary's Jenn Zimmer also placed in the event.

For Windsor's men's team, Aaron Bowman won gold in the 60m dash with a time of 6.73. In the multi-events, Branden Wilhelm scored 3888 points to win the pentathlon and was followed by teammate Jesse Drennan close behind with 3825 points. While Guelph was favored to win the meet, they remain off the scoreboard after Day 1 and will have a good gauge after Day 2 where the meet stands based on points and qualifications for Day 3 finals.
