By now, you all know Elaina as a six-time All-American as a Tribe XC/distance runner, but now she is running professionally as a member of the Boston Athletic Association high performance team. The Boston College graduate student placed 14th (16:15) in a very impressive women's field at yesterday's USA 5k Road Championships in Providence.

Kevin Cropp '78 Inducted into HS Athletic HoF

Kevin Cropp, still the 12th fastest performer in W&M history in the 1500m (3:45.5), is being inducted into the Parry McCluer HS (Buena Vista, VA) Athletic Hall of Fame this weekend! While in HS, Cropp ran the 5th fastest indoor mile in the nation in 1974, and also set 18 school records and 6 state records at various distances during his time at PMHS. He also holds the VHSL Class A record in the mile, which is still faster than the best 1600m time posted since the race changed to that (shorter) distance.

Congratulations, Kevin!

Sabrina Moran Little '09 - Ultra Marathoner

Some of you may remember Sabrina Moran Little who ran on the team for a brief stint at William & Mary, before turning her focus to higher mileage work. Let's just say that her move to higher mileage has proven to be wildly successful. Sabrina is the American record holder in the 24-hour run (147.9 miles covered in a 24-hour period!!!) and in the road 200k. Such performances have solidified Little as the face of female ultrarunning in the USA.
