Track and Field
The earliest reference to an organized Track and Field team at the College of William and Mary can be found in the 1906 Colonial Echo yearbook. The 1905 and 1903 yearbooks mention a field day held at William & Mary, but no further information is provided. There is a handbill from a late 19th century field day competition for students at William and Mary in the Athletics Department Records in the Special Collections Research Center, but it appears to have been the sole competition of the year.
