The Cavaliers enter the season as the sixth-ranked team on the men's side according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) preseason poll. UVA ended the 2016 season ranked seventh nationally.

Both athletes secured first-team All-America honors last season, finishing inside the top-8 nationally in their events. Mihaljevic earned the program's first NCAA field title, taking home the NCAA championship in the men's shot put. He also claimed fifth in the discus. Wynne added a third-place finish in the 1,500 meters to help elevate the Cavaliers in the team standings.
