W&M's Wilhelm, Williams Win Weekly Honors from the CAA


RICHMOND, VA - The William and Mary track and field teams each picked up an Athlete of the Week honor from the Colonial Athletic Association on Wednesday, in recognition performances on the first weekend of the outdoor season.

Senior Ashley Williams (Williamsburg, Va.) was named as the Women's Field Athlete of the Week, after she earned a pair of top-three finishes at the Tribe Invitational on Saturday. Williams, the defending CAA Champion in the shot put, won that event with a career-best outdoor put of 46-5.25 (14.15 meters), and also took third in the hammer throw with a toss of 157-1 (47.88m). Her mark int he shot put qualified her for the ECAC Championship in May, and currently stands 18th in the NCAA East Region.

All-American Patterson Wilhelm (Lynchburg, Va.) was also honored Wednesday, as he was named the Men's Track Athlete of the Week. The redshirt-junior won the 1,500m race at the Tribe Invitational with a career-fast 3:48.42, and came back later in the day to pace the field in the 5,000m. His 1,500m time qualifies Wilhelm for the IC4A Championships, and currently ranks as the best time in the East Region and fifth in the nation so far this spring.

William and Mary returns to action this weekend, travelling to College Park, Maryland, for the Maryland Invitational on Saturday, March 27.
