Former GW Softball Standout is Finalist for Annual Award
Elana Meyers '07 was GW softball's first-ever recruit and team MVP in every season. She graduated in 2007 as the Colonials' all-time record holder in nearly every offensive category, then went on to win an Olympic bronze medal in bobsled. Meyers not only threw the first pitch and earned the first win in program history, but also recorded the team's first hit and scored its first run. Meyers is the only Colonial to bat above .400 for a season, doing so in 2006 and 2007. A two-time Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team selection and GW's first-ever All-Region honoree when she earned first-team accolades in 2007, Meyers was also the A-10 Student-Athlete of the Year for softball and an Academic All-American in 2006 and 2007. Meyers is now a member of the U.S. national bobsled team and won a bronze medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and a silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
