Richardson Wins First IC4A Championship, First for Tribe Discus History


By Krystle Bono

It was another history-making event for Broadwater alum and William & Mary graduate student, Preston Richardson, who threw a 49.91 meter (163-9) discus to win his very first IC4A Championship last Saturday in Princeton, N.J., not only earning a first-time IC4A title for himself, but a first in school history in the discus.

He went on to earn All-East honors in the shot put the following day, throwing 16.53 meters (54-2.75) and finishing fourth. His performances helped the Tribe finish third behind Monmouth.

Richardson and the William & Mary team will take a breather for the next two weeks to prepare for the NCAA Eastern Preliminaries in Jacksonville, Fla., which are slated to begin May 23.
