The William and Mary track and field teams continued competition Saturday at Richmond's Fred Hardy Invitational, with the throwing corps leading the way with three all-time top-16 marks.

Complete Results

Women's Discus
In the women's discus, senior Natalie Baird (Sterling, Va.) was second overall with a throw of 45.42 meters (149-0).  Baird was just ahead of freshman Rochelle Evans (Christiansburg, Va.), who was third with a collegiate-best throw of 42.99m (141-0).  Evans now ranks fifth in school history, and she is just the fifth woman to surpass the 140-foot barrier.

Women's Javelin
Also on the women's side, junior Anna Rose Gellert (Providence, N.J.) set a lifetime-best with her throw of 34.74m (114-0).  Gellert improves to 13th all-time at W&M with the performance.

Men's Discus
Freshman Taylor Frenia (Virginia Beach, Va.) continued his strong rookie campaign in the discus, ranking 10th in school history with his fifth-place throw of 46.60m (152-10).

Men's Javelin
Bob Smutsky (Dillsburg, Pa.) also kept up his string of strong performances, throwing the javelin 59.43m (194-11) to take second overall.

W&M returns to action next weekend, hosting the 48th Annual Colonial Relays.  One of the largest and most prestigious early-season meets on the East Coast, the Relays begin Thursday night with the women's hammer throw before the main series of events kicks off Friday morning at Zable Stadium.
