27:59 for Christo Landry

Watch more video of Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational 2013 on flotrack.org
I remember seeing Landry get 13th place at the NCAA XC meet a number of years ago.  Then he headed into injury oblivion and took three years to get back to where he was before.  Two years ago he notched a mid 28 10K and now at the Payton Jordan meet he became the second fastest W&M runner ever (after Ed Moran) when he knocked out a 27:59 10K.

Two Women Set School Records

Elaina Balouris placed second in the women’s 5,000-metre event at the Colonial Relays on Friday, 6thApril.   Her 16:03.43 time eclipsed Marcie Homan’s school record.  The Tribe's other school record, and an ECAC-qualifier to boot, came in the 200m dash where freshman Jessica Ewing took seventh overall in 24.52 seconds. Here are the other women's results. 

The men had two IC4A qualifiers on the first day of competition.  The Tribe's first IC4A mark of the weekend came in the 1,500m, where senior John Muller ran 3:47.93 for a big lifetime-best and to take seventh overall.  Rad Gunzenhauser also dipped in under the qualifying barrier, this time in the 5,000m, running 14:13.56 and taking ninth overall.  Two weeks ago at the Tribe Invitational, Gunzenhauser ran 29:50 in the 10,000m to meet the IC4A requirement in that event.  Here are more men's results.
