The William & Mary women’s track & field team opened action at the 53rd Berkeley Realty Property Management Colonial Relays on Thursday with competitors in two events, and came away with a stadium and meet record and a win for 10 points in the team race.  After the first three events, the Tribe is tied for third overall alongside James Madison, while Mount Olive has the top spot with 18 points and Boston College is second with 14 points.- The first event of the weekend was the hammer throw, and senior All-American Leia Mistowski (Narragansett, R.I.) did not disappoint as the top seed.  Her very first throw went 60.61m (198-10), breaking the meet record of 59.66m (195-9) set last year and her own Stimson Throwing Events Area record from three weeks ago of 60.22m (197-7).  That would stand up for the win through the next six rounds of competition, and was another ECAC qualifier for Mistowski and the fourth-longest throw in school history.- In the women’s 3,000m run, Tribe freshman Megan Kolbe (Doylestown, Pa.) ran 10:53.95 for 26th place, while top honors went to Boston College’s Miranda Thompson in 9:52.73.- The final event of the day was the 10,000m, won wire-to-wire by Mount Olive’s Leah Hanle, coming up just shy of the meet and stadium records with her winning time of 33:43.95.The Berkeley Realty Property Management Colonial Relays continues on Friday, with events starting at 9 a.m.53rd Berkeley Realty Property Management Colonial Relays
