W&M Women's Cross Country Takes Second at CAA Championships, Places Three on All-Conference Team

WILMINGTON, N.C. - The William and Mary women's cross country team had three runners earn all-conference honors Saturday morning at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships, but were unable to hold James Madison and finished second overall. The Dukes won for the first time since 2002, 28-46, behind Alison Parris' individual gold. W&M has finished either first or second every year since 1986.

Complete Results

As she has all year along, freshman Elaina Balouris (Allison Park, Pa.) led the Tribe with her third-place effort in 20:50. Balouris was only one second behind the second-place finisher, and is the first freshman named All-CAA for W&M since 2008. Classmate Kathleen Lautzenheiser (Midlothian, Va.) was also named all-conference, taking seventh in 21:19. Senior Betsy Graney (Harper Woods, Mich.) earned her second All-CAA nod with a time of 21:35 and a ninth-place finish. Just missing the top-12 was junior Avery Mattingly (Blacksburg, Va.), 13th in 21:54, and redshirt-freshman Megan Fitzpatrick (Ashburn, Va.) was right behind her in 14th with a time of 22 minutes flat. Junior Sara Lasker (Fredericksburg, Va.) was sixth for the Tribe and 18th overall in 22:14, and senior Kelsey Budd (Oakton, Va.) rounded out the top seven in 22:16, and 20th-place overall.

Also running for the College on the day was junior Kristen Dietz (Springfield, Va.), crossing the line in 22:27 for 26th place. True freshman Leah Fitchett (Blacksburg, Va.) was 35th overall, and redshirt-freshman Katie Buenaga (Greenville, Del.) was 41st in the 95-runner race.

William and Mary will send a few individuals up to Charlottesville next Friday, November 5th, for the Cavalier Open.
