Richmond women's track and field won several events at the Fred Hardy Invitational.

Richmond track and cross country alumnus Jeff Watson, who graduated in 2003, ran in Monday's Boston Marathon and was unharmed despite two explosions near the finish line that killed at least three people and injured hundreds more. "It was pretty surreal," Watson said.
A number of people with University of Richmond track and cross country connections were present either as runners or spectators during Monday's Boston Marathon, where two explosions near the finish line killed at least three and injured hundreds more. The exact number of people with Spider connections is not yet known, but no word of injuries has been reported as of yet, according to Jon Molz, assistant coach for the men's track and cross country programs.
Some of you may have noticed the new banners around campus, draping from the posts along the roadways here at University of Richmond.
Sixty-four roster spots opened after the dismissal of the men's soccer and indoor and outdoor track and field teams last fall.
Imagine running a race, and just after you take off, an opponent spikes you in the back of the ankle, causing you to lose your stride and your heel to pop out of your shoe. Junior Alyson McGonigle and her teammates not only won this race, but helped set a record in it, despite having half a foot in her shoe. McGonigle, seniors Stephanie Paradis and Lydia Morton and sophomore Taylor Clevinger composed one of two successful Richmond women's track relay teams at the Atlantic 10 Indoor Track and Field Championships Friday and Saturday at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, R.I. McGonigle, Paradis, Morton and Clevinger ran the women's 4-x-800-meter relay in an A-10 record time of 9 minutes, 3.71 seconds on Saturday, beating the former record holder and the second-place Rhode Island team by about four seconds. And if McGonigle had run with both shoes fully on, the Spiders might have won by even more time. When McGonigle was stepped on, she said: "I was trying to get my shoe back on for the first two laps but was unable to, so I had to change my gait and try to just keep it on and keep running." As McGonigle passed her baton to Paradis, the Spiders relay team was in second place, just a few seconds behind the Rhode Island team. "I was able to come back a lot in my last lap," McGonigle said.
During the past six months, there have been some changes at Richmond. Have you been paying attention?
Robert Agaba is not a typical University of Richmond student; he is a 28-year-old sophomore from Rwanda, who is about to become a father. Agaba came to the U.S.
A rally for sports teams transitioned into a call for transparency and communication in the aftermath of a student-led protest outside the December Board of Trustees meeting. On Dec.
Bobby Ukrop, one of Richmond's largest donors during the past several years, has resigned from the university's Board of Trustees, as first reported by Richmond BizSense. Ukrop, who graduated from UR in 1969, had served on the board for 13 nonconsecutive years before stepping down at the board meeting on Dec.
The University of Richmond board members were greeted Thursday on the third floor of the Tyler Haynes Commons by wraps, pasta salad, chips, brownies and about 50 students holding signs in support of reinstating the men's track and field and soccer programs. The Board of Trustees members, who made the decision in September to cut the two programs in favor of adding a men's lacrosse team, will meet again tomorrow, where board member Bobby Ukrop will present a case for the teams' reinstatement, said soccer alumnus Bret Myers. Track members originally decided to stage Thursday's protest when a source, who does not want his or her name shared, told the runners where and when the luncheon was taking place, said Kyle Ragan, a senior on the track team. Matthew Groff, a sophomore track member, thought the demonstration went better than expected, he said. "We didn't know how many people were going to come out," he said.
I set foot on campus for the first time in 2007; a gawky kid who wore Target-brand tube socks with sneakers and was blissfully unaware that, unlike his native Australia, America had not embraced jean shorts as a sensible, everyday fashion choice.
My fellow teammates and I are up against a formidable force in our fight to reestablish our team on this wonderful campus. With respect to myself, I have not once on this long, hard journey entertained the idea of accommodation.
The "Daddy Story" takes place in the Richmond "bubble," an imaginary world where leaders are exempt from accountability and dollars trump the truth.
The press conference hosted by University of Richmond soccer alumni on Friday presented a question of right and wrong, said men's soccer coach Leigh Cowlishaw. Maybe the answer will not be reinstating soccer and track, but the decision certainly needs to be scrutinized with all the facts presented, he said. Soccer alumnus Scott Byrnes, '91, led off his speech by acknowledging that people might have seen the amount of work that has gone into fighting the decision to cut the men's soccer and men's track and field teams as overkill.
Computer dying so I'll end this now. Thanks for joining me, I'll provide a quick recap soon with any new information that may come. "You can put new people in their slots," Byrnes says in response to a comment about President Ayers and other board members. Byrnes answers my question about the Washington Post article released yesterday, saying it didn't include all the information he had hoped it would. "We're not gonna stop," Byrnes answers to a question from RTD. Byrnes now taking questions with two other soccer alumni, one of which is Jim Brady, '85. Byrnes finishes his speech, to a standing ovation, by pulling out a Richmond flag and saying, "Carry the Flag, boys." "I ask you to withhold your donations to the University of Richmond until the Board of Trustees makes this right." Byrnes now asking the board to reinstate the soccer and track programs as soon as possible. "You had an organized group of soccer alumni banging on your door to help, and you ignored us," Byrnes says, in spirit to Ayers. Byrnes says that if the soccer alumni had any idea the program was in jeopardy, they would've brought their arguments straight to the Board of Trustees before the decision was finalized, and the "lacrosse inner circle" couldn't afford that to happen. Major Donor refused to engage with soccer alumni because "it would be inappropriate" because he is a member of the Board of Trustees, Byrnes said. "Eliminating a men's sport will not be an option," Byrnes says, quoting an email about a conversation another soccer alumni had with VP of advancement Tom Gutenberger last summer. Neither Ayers or Miller here right now I don't believe.
The alumni of the recently cut Richmond men's soccer and track and field teams have continued their strategic planning efforts, with large parts of those efforts culminating right before Homecoming Weekend. On Tuesday, eight track alumni published and distributed a 28-page paper, titled "An Examination of the University of Richmond's 2012 Athletic Department Reconfiguration." In the paper, the alumni highlight why outdoor track should be reinstated, citing sources for all research and claims, while indoor track and soccer should be given an opportunity to raise the funds needed to remain along with the addition of a women's sport. "We're just trying to organize everything that we've heard from Dr. [Edward] Ayers and his chief of staff [Lori Schuyler] and [Athletic Director] Jim Miller," said Jon Molz, 2008 track alumnus and current assistant coach for the track and cross country teams.
I can remember it like it was yesterday. It was a crisp November afternoon and the fallen leaves were crunching beneath our feet as we made our way down Westham Station. I was out for a run with fellow Spiders Matt Llano, Jonny Wilson and Tim Quinn.
On the morning of Saturday, Sept. 22, the Gottwald atrium was scattered with laptops and cell phones.
