WASHINGTON - Junior Miranda DiBiasio opened the George Washington women's track team's outdoor slate on Friday night with a record-setting performance in the 10,000-meter run at the Raleigh Relays. The rest of the team followed with two new program-record performances on Saturday at the Navy Open in Annapolis, Maryland.

DiBiasio shattered her own record in the 10,000m to start things off on Friday night, finishing with a time of 34:55.50 to best her previous mark from last year's Atlantic 10 Championship (35:07.64). She placed 16th overall in an enormous field featuring the best distance runners in the nation.

In the 1,500-meter run, sophomore Madison Yerke topped GW's best-ever performance in a new record time of 4:41.09, beating the previous mark by just over two seconds. The Colonials had three additional runners join Yerke (2nd) in the top-10 of the event as junior Lauren t'Kint (4th, 4:43.64), senior Macualay Porter (7th, 4:46.73) and sophomore Lesley Fatica (9th, 4:53.13) all set new personal records.
