W&L Women's T&F Competes at Radford Highlander Invite

RADFORD, Va. – One school record and two personal-best performances highlighted the Washington and Lee women's track and field two-day competition at the Radford Highlander Invitational on Friday and Saturday at the Patrick D. Cupp Memorial Stadium.

First-year Janey Fugate (Atlanta, Ga./Whitefield Academy) took first overall in the 400m hurdles, beating out a field consisting mostly of Division I athletes. Her time of 1:03.85 in the event is now a new W&L school record, besting her own previous record of 1:04.41.

The 1,500m race featured two Generals, with both sophomore Annelise Madison (Roca, Neb./Norris) and junior Molly Ortiz (Ketchikan, Alaska/Ketchikan) recording their best times of the season. Madison finished fourth overall in a time of 4:45.79 and Ortiz clocked in at 4:57.36.

W&L returns to the track on May 7-8, as select athletes will compete at the Lynchburg Heptathlon.
