The Extra Mile with Emil Heineking
Heineking helped the Cavaliers finish fourth at the Pre-Nationals meet in Terre Haute, a finish that vaulted the Virginia men’s cross country team to the No. 11 spot in the national poll. A true first-year, Heineking was the second rookie to cross the line at the Pre-Nationals meet, where he finished 33rd overall.
