Complete Results

Fairfax, Va. -- Three women claimed victories at the George Mason Invitational on a day where the field events outshadowed the results on the track.

Junior Punnie Chittchang (Mount Airy, Md.) established a new career high and team season high in the long jump on her way to her first victory of the season Saturday. Her jump of 20-3 broke her old record (20-1.75) set at the 2001 Alabama Relays.

Also notching her first victory of the season was junior Aranda Brown (Schenectady, N.Y.) in the weight throw competition. Brown also established a new career high with her throw of 157-11.75, besting her previous best throw she established at this season's ACC Championships (154-0).

The story on the track once again for the Terps was senior Thema Napier (Columbia, Md.) who claimed victory in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 59.31. It is a Napier's second victory in the 400-meter hurdles this spring and came off the heels of a solid eighth-place performance at last weekend's Penn Relays.

On the men's side, senior James Gondak (Doylestown, Md.) and junior John Collins (Clarksburg, Md.) formed a solid tandem taking second and third places respectively in the weight throw competition. Gondak's throw of 178-0 gives him a season best distance and puts him just puts him only one inch behind Collins' team best of 178-1 which he gained at the ACC Championships.

The Terps will participate in two events next weekend: the Towson Invitational on May 10 and the James Madison Invitational on May 10 and 11.
