WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team stayed local at the Mason Spring Invitational on Saturday. The Hoyas posted numerous BIG EAST qualifying times and are positioning themselves well just three weeks prior to the outdoor track & field postseason.
All-American Amanda Kimbers (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) ran 11.68 in the women's 100-meter dash prelims to qualify for the finals, where she finished second overall.
A pair of California products in London Finley (Los Angeles, Calif./St. Mary's Academy) and Tenille Stoudenmire (San Diego, Calif./Rancho Bernardo) took third (55.28) and seventh (56.80), respectively, in the women's 400-meter dash.

Hannah Neczypor (North Royalton, Ohio/North Royalton) finished fifth (4:24.42) while Annamarie Maag (Lake Oswego, Ore./Jesuit) placed seventh (4:24.77) and Kelsey Smith (Exeter, N.H./Exeter) finished 11th (4:28.83).
The women's 800-meter dash was stacked with a number of Hoya athletes, former and current.

Mirroring the slew of runners in the women's 800, the men's 1,500-meter run featured a number of runners for the Blue & Gray. Men's Distance Coach and former Hoya Michael Banks ran unattached and won the race with a time of 3:42.37 while Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly) finished third (3:43.04).
