FAIRFAX, Va. - George Washington women's outdoor track sophomore Miranda DiBiasio made history on Saturday afternoon when she won the gold medal in the 10,000-meter run on day one of the Atlantic 10 Championship at George Mason Stadium.

DiBiasio, who earns her second career All-Conference honor for outdoor track, is the first GW student-athlete in program history to earn an outright A-10 championship at the conference championship meet.

She topped the field of 20 competitors with a time of 35:07.64, which is both a personal and program record, to win the gold. She blew away the opposition, lapping the field and finishing 38 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.

Junior Ariana North earned her second straight All-Conference honor in the 3000m Steeplechase when she placed eighth overall with a time of 11:04.37. The time marked a 10-second improvement on her All-Conference performance in the event at last season's championship.

The women's team also saw two additional program records fall on Saturday as junior Kirsten Nottingham (400m) and sophomore Malone Gabor (800m) each broke their own records.

Nottingham finished the 400m in 1:01.40 to beat her previous record by just over three-tenths of a second.

Gabor ran the 800m in 2:22.86 to shave just over one second off her previous record.

The women's team currently sits in ninth place out of 12 teams with 11 points.

On the men's side, both of GW's competitors in the 800m set new personal records. Freshman Sawyer Bilton finished in 1:57.62 while senior Rob Craven ran in 1:58.41.



Junior Jordan Pantalone placed 11th in the 3000m Steeplechase with a time of 9:42.58.
