April 1, 2017

Pepsi Florida Relays Results | Stanford Invitational Results | Colonial Relays Results

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team split sites this weekend, traveling to a trio of meets around the country as the Hoyas put up personal records (PRs) in all three meets. A bulk of the team traveled to Williamsburg, Va., for the Colonial Relays, hosted by William & Mary, while smaller contingents went to the Stanford Invitational (Palo Alto, Calif.) and the Pepsi Florida Relays (Gainesville, Fla.), hosted by Stanford and the University of Florida, respectively.

The Hoyas have concluded competition at the Florida Relays and Stanford Invitational and will return to the Colonial Relays on Saturday.

Pepsi Florida Relays (Gainesville, Fla.)
A small group of the men's team traveled to Gainesville, Fla., to compete in the Pepsi Florida Relays, highlighted by All-American Joe White running a PR in the 800-meter run. White clocked 1:46.07 to finish second in the race, currently the third-fastest time in the NCAA this season. His time also enters the GU record books at No. 3 all-time in the outdoor event.
