CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia cross country teams announced their 2014 schedule on Monday (July 7). The Cavaliers will host three meets at Panorama Farms, including the ACC Championships.
"We are very excited about our cross country schedule, especially our home schedule," said director of track and field/cross country Bryan Fetzer. "For any of our home competitions, we always want to host the nation's best. The only way to reach our goal to be among the NCAA's top programs, you have to continually increase the level of competition and this year is no exception. Fans and alumni will have an opportunity to see some of the best cross country runners compete in Charlottesville."
The men's and women's programs will host a pair of meets to start the season. The teams debut on Aug. 29 with the UVa Duals as Florida State, Liberty and Norfolk State, along with the women's teams from Duke and James Madison, will compete in the meet.
The Cavaliers return to Panorama Farms on Sept. 26 to host the Virginia/Panorama Farms Invitational. Thee meet will feature a strong field that includes three of the top 15 men's teams (No. 6 Iona, No. 13 Virginia and No. 15 Eastern Kentucky) and three of the top 12 women's teams (No. 2 Arizona, No. 9 Virginia and No. 12 William & Mary) from last year's NCAA Championships.
"When you have a home facility like Panorama Farms that is annually rated as one of the nation's best, you want to show it off," said Fetzer. "Last year, we had some great crowds come out for our home meets and with the level of the teams coming this season, we hopefully can have even bigger crowds this year."
In October, the men and women split up, competing in different events. The men will run on Oct. 4 at the Washington Invitational in Seattle. The women compete on Oct. 17 at the Wisconsin adidas Inivtational in Madison.
The 2014 ACC Championships will be held on Oct. 31 at Panorama Farms. It marks the third time the course has hosted the meet, as it was also the site of the 2006 and 2007 ACC meets.
Virginia will open NCAA competition on Nov. 14 at the NCAA Southeast Regional in Louisville, Ky. The NCAA Championships will be held Nov. 22 in Terre Haute, Ind.
