WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Wesley College's women's track athletes opened the outdoor season at the 50th Colonial Relays hosted by William & Mary at Zable Stadium on Friday and Saturday afternoon.

The Wolverines set a pair of school-records over the weekend, including the 4x100m Relay of Sophomores Elizsha Streeter and Angel Hall, along with freshmen Ashley Morris and Alexia Mitchell.  The combination not only broke a school-record, but shattered Wesley's previous Capital Athletic Conference record by half a second in 47.78.  The team finished sixth overall in the event and is the second-fastest Division III time this season.

Morris and Mitchell also ran the first two legs of the school-record breaking sprint medley relay.  Following their 200m legs was Danae Carter and Dieunise Desir and the time of 4:24.56 broke the old school-mark by nearly two seconds.

Streeter, Hall and Mitchell also ran in the 4x400m Relay along with freshman Quadira Minus and clocked a 3:57.85 which is also in the top ten nationally.
