CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia track and field and cross country programs announced eight additions to the Cavaliers' 2015 recruiting class on Monday. Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Bryan Fetzer announced that these eight athletes have either signed a National Letter of Intent or have signed a letter of admission and will join the five women and seven men who signed with UVa in November to form the incoming class of 2015-16.
"We are very excited about this recruiting class overall," said Fetzer. "We continue to build on the previous class. I expect that this group, when added to the signing class in the fall, will set us up for years to come."
The class includes athletes who will compete in sprints, hurdles, distance, jumps and multi-events for the Cavaliers.
