WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Senior Meaghan McGovern and sophomore Alli Mannon each came away with wins to highlight action for the Spiders at William and Mary's Colonial Relays this weekend.
McGovern (North Kingston, R.I./North Kingston) opened the meet with a top finish in the women's hammer throw on Thursday. The senior, who is just one week removed from setting a new meet and facility record at the Fred Hardy Invitational, turned in a toss of 51.82 meters (170') to win the event by more than two meters over Delaware's second-place finisher.

Mannon (Litiz, Pa./Warwick) followed McGovern's lead in the 3,000 meters, which she won with a time of 9:57.84 as one of two runners to record sub-10 minute times. Classmate Elizabeth Schinski (Geneseo, N.Y./Geneseo) crossed the line in 10:14.80 to secure a seventh-place finish.

Also earning a top-three finish this weekend was senior Nicol Traynor (Basking Ridge, N.J./Basking Ridge), who captured third in the 3,000 Meter Steeplechase with a time of 10:17.88. Newcomer Alli Stapleton (Commack, N.Y./Commack) finished 17th in 11:25.00.
