Scouting the Tribe
The W&M women are competing at full strength for the first time this outdoor season this weekend, with athletes entered in nearly every event up and down the schedule.  The notables are led as always by the All-American duo of Elaina Balouris (Allison Park, Pa.) and Emily Stites (Wyoming, Ohio), who are the top two entrants in the 5,000m run on Friday night.  Balouris is a five-time All-American, including each of the last three NCAA championship events.  She was runner-up in the 5,000m at last year's Colonial Relays, before taking 10th in the 10,000m at the NCAA meet.  Stites is a three-time All-American, including ninth outdoors at 5,000m last year and sixth in the 5,000m last month at the NCAA Indoor Championships.  This will be her first appearance at the Colonial Relays, after she spent last year recovering from the World Cross Country Championships.

In the field events, notable entrants including sophomore Rochelle Evans (Christiansburg, Va.).  Fifth in the ECAC shot put this winter, Evans put an outdoor-best 14.09m (46-2.75) last week at the Fred Hardy Invitational, and has also thrown lifetime-bests in the hammer and the discus.  Junior Elizabeth Crafford (Darien, Conn.) will take to the pole vault for the first time since finishing second at the ECAC Championships last month, and she'll be joined for the first time in a year by teammate Nina Ullom (Chantilly, Va.), who missed most of last spring due to injury.

On the track, notable entrants include All-East sprinter Claire Tito (Richmond, Va.), who'll be looking to earn her first ECAC qualification in the 800m.  Classmate Ashley Woodards (Franklinville, N.J.) was the Tribe's top short-sprinter indoors, and will be working to establish that position outdoors as well.  ECAC and NCAA qualifiers abound in the 5,000m, with Meghan McGovern (North Wales, Pa.), Dylan Hassett (Alpharetta, Ga.), Carolyn Hennessey (Herndon, Va.), and Erica Amatori (Cary, N.C.) all slated to toe the line alongside the All-Americans.  Junior Brittany Biagi (Mullica Hill, N.J.) continues to impress in the 400m hurdles, and this weekend marks the track debut of Tribe sophomore Pippin Saunders (Mittagong, NSW).  Saunders is also a member of the W&M field hockey team, earning first-team All-CAA honors last fall and leading the Tribe in scoring each of her first two seasons.
