PHILADELPHIA – The Temple women's track and field team is set for another two-day meet this weekend in Williamsburg, Va. The 2016 Colonial Relays will begin on Friday, April 1 and continue to Saturday, April 2. Across both days, the Owls will be competing in 19 different events including seven different relays.

Last weekend, the Owls notched five top-ten finishes and three personal-bests at the Raleigh Relays. Kenya Gaston posted the highest finish for an individual running event, placing ninth in the 400-meter run with a time of 55.81.
