Nov. 20, 2003
Virginia’s Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Randy Bungard has announced that four athletes have signed national letters of intent to attend the University of Virginia. All four have won individual titles at their state meets, including two from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Jennifer Beury, Jannea Bridgeford, Sara Ensrud, and Emily Harrison form the core of “a strong class that will help build up our current program tremendously,” according to Coach Bungard.
Jennifer Beury (Roanoke, Va./Hidden Valley) is the 2003 VA State AA Champion in 3200m run. She also placed fourth at 2003 VA AA State XC Championships and has a personal best of 10:39.71 in the 3200m.
Emily Harrison (Front Royal, Va./Warren County) also hails from Virginia and is the 2003 VA State AA Champion in cross country. She was the 2003 VA State AA runner-up in 3200, finishing just behind Beury. She has a personal best of 10:44.52 in the 3200m run.
Sara Ensrud (Gering, Neb./Gering) also won a state title in cross country, winning the Nebraska state title in 2003. Ensrud is also the 2003 Nebraska state track champion in the 800m and the 1600m. She holds the Class B state record in the 1600M run and has personal bests of 2:11.70 (800m) and 4:58.13 (1600m).
Jannea Bridgeford (Upper Darby, Pa./Upper Darby) is the PA state champion in the indoor 60M and the outdoor 100m. She has personal bests of 7.59 (60m) and 11.98 (100m).
“The three distance ladies will be able to come in and contribute right away,” said Bungard. “They have already run good times and will be able to make an impact. Jannea is a variable sprinter who will really be able to take off when she gets to college.”
