LEADING OFF: George Washington's men's and women's outdoor track teams will return to action this weekend at the three-day Colonial Relays, hosted by William & Mary.

HOT START: Both teams opened their respective outdoor seasons with a bang at last weekend's Maryland Invitational.

Senior Ryan Tucker set a new men's outdoor program record in the 1500-meter run, smashing his own record in 3:53.10. Six additional competitors set new personal records in the 1500m - sophomore Ryan DePinto (3:53.41), sophomore Charles Arnold (4:05.63), freshman Andrew Weber (4:07.78), junior Seamus Roddy (4:09.74) and senior Jack McCabe (4:27.42)

On the women's side, sophomore Miranda DiBiasio set a new personal-best time by running the 1500m in 4:53.42, to lead a sextet of Colonials in the event.

THE COMPETITION: A total of 63 collegiate institutions, including 43 in Division I, will be in action at the three-day event. Among this weekend's competing teams are regional rivals American, Charlotte, Christopher Newport, Georgetown, UMBC, VCU, Virginia Tech and Towson.



EVENTS: Both the men's and women's teams will compete in a quartet of events over the weekend - the 3,000-meter run, 3,000-meter steeplechase, the 5,000-meter run and the distance medley relay.

Junior Ariana North was named an Atlantic 10 All-Conference performer in the steeplechase last season and will compete in the event for the first time this season on Saturday.

DiBiasio also returns to action in an event for which she has earned All-Conference recognition when she competes in the 5000m on Saturday.
