The duo of DaSilva and Deloache finished second and third, respectively, with time times of 5:05.07 and 5:06.16 in the mile.

Georgetown continued to excel in the shorter distances with Deseree King (Oxon Hill, Md./Oxon Hill) and Mirabel Nkenke (Orange, N.J./Immaculate Conception) taking the top two spots in the women's 300-meter dash with times of 40.23 and 40.85, respectively.

The Georgetown track & field team opened the 2013-14 indoor season at the Navy Invitational on Friday night in Annapolis, Md. The Hoya men showed their strength in the middle distance and distance with five first-place finishes on the day including four individual races and one relay.
