Andy Biladeau, the 2005 ACC Cross Country Freshman of the Year, has played a significant role in Virginia’s rise to the national scene since his arrival. After helping the Cavaliers capture the 2005 ACC Cross Country title and earn back-to-back berths in the NCAA Championships, Biladeau continues to shine for Virginia. His 11th-place finish at the Roy Griak Invitational in 2007 helped the Cavaliers upset Michigan State en route to a fifth-place finish as a team.
