William and Mary senior Elaina Balouris (Allison Park, Pa.) added a second weekly award on Tuesday for her performance last weekend, and was named the Colonial Athletic Association Runner of the Week.  Monday, she was named the USTFCCCA National Runner of the Week.

Balouris was the individual champion at the Spider Alumni Open on Saturday, running 10:17.5 to break the meet record and lead the Tribe to a 16-57 team victory over five other Division I programs.  She won by 0.8 seconds over teammate Emily Stites (Wyoming, Ohio), and both were more than 10 seconds ahead of the third-place finisher.  All three, as well as W&M sophomore Meghan McGovern (North Wales, Pa.), broke the existing meet record of 10:32.5 set by Stites last year.  Balouris' win was the eighth of her career and third in cross country, following trail wins at the W&M Invitational and the CAA Championships last fall.

Balouris and her teammates are back in action in two weeks, hosting the 55th Annual W&M Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 21.  Races in both the high school and college divisions will begin shortly after 8 a.m. at Eastern State Hospital.
