RICHMOND, Va. – For the third time this spring, junior Bryanna Hames of the Elon University women’s track and field team was named the Colonial Athletic Association Field Athletic of the Week as announced by the league office on Tuesday afternoon, April 18.
Hames continues her breakthrough 2017 season as the Charlotte, N.C., native broke a couple of her school records in the shot put and the discus this Saturday, April 15, at the Phoenix Invitational. Hames had a new personal-best toss of 47’ 11.25” (14.61m) in the shot put and followed with a new personal-record heave of 171’ 7” (52.29m) in the discus. The junior won the title in both events at the meet with both marks ranking No. 1 on the CAA performance list.
