Christine Bohan earned All-America honors, finishing 11th in the shot put at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The Cavaliers tallied 11 All-ACC team honorees throughout the year. During the indoor season, Cleo Boyd set a school record in the 3000m race. Emily Mulhern was named to the USTFCCCA All-Southeast Region team.
The Cavaliers have benefited from Lannigan Field’s renovation in 2012 which has allowed them to host the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2012 and enabled the Virginia Challenge to become one of the top meets in the nation, attracting elite teams and Olympians each year. Panorama Farms, in Earlysville, gives Virginia one of the best cross country facilities in the country. The course was home to the 2013 and 2015 NCAA Southeast Regionals and the 2014 ACC Championships, and will host the regional meet again in 2016 and 2017.
Donations to the Virginia Athletics Foundation directed to Friends of Cross Country and Track & Field provide operational and scholarship support for the program.
