WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field program traveled to New York City for the Dr. Sander Invitational / Columbia Challenge, held on Friday and Saturday, at the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory. The two-day meet saw the Hoyas put up solid times that rank among the top of the BIG EAST Conference.

On the women’s side, the foursome of All-American Piper Donaghu (Portland, Ore./Grant), Jody-Ann Knight (Bentonville, Ark./Bentonville), Olivia Arizin (Media, Pa./Cardinal O’Hara) and Meredith Rizzo (Bronxville, N.Y./Bronxville/Yale) clocked 11:16.28 in the women’s distance medley relay (DMR). The squad’s time ranks seventh nationally at this point in the season.

Donaghu finished 15th in a stacked mile field, finishing less than a second off her personal record (PR) at this early part of the season. Her time is the third-fastest in the BIG EAST Conference currently. Competing in the field was former Hoya All-American Rachel Schneider, now competing for Under Armour professionally, who finished second in the race.

On the men’s side, the quartet of All-American Spencer Brown (Wilton, Conn./Wilton), Nate Alleyne (Downingtown, Pa./Bishop Shanahan), Kenny Rowe (Cockeysville, Md./Loyola-Blakefield) and All-American Amos Bartelsmeyer (St. Louis, Mo./St. Louis Country Day) ran 9:38.31 in the DMR, good enough for third place at the meet and currently ranks fourth in the country.

The men’s 4x400-meter relay saw All-American Quincey Wilson (Lithonia, Ga./Arabia Mountain), Rowe, Rey Rivera (Old Bridge, N.J./Old Bridge) and Alleyne combine for a time of 3:16.18, good enough for fourth place at the meet and the second-best mark in the BIG EAST.

Both squads will be back in action as the team splits sites, competing at the BU Scarlet & White Invite in Boston on Feb. 2-3 as well as the Villanova Invitational in Staten Island, New York, on Feb. 3.
