Both the Cavalier men and women are looking to improve upon seventh place finishes at last year’s indoor championships. The Virginia women won the title in 1987, while the men’s best finish was a third-place showing in 2009.
Three Cavaliers who earned All-ACC honors at last year’s ACC Indoor Championships are looking for more accolades this season. Jordan Lavender (Nashville, Tenn.), the 2013 runner-up in the indoor 400m and the ACC outdoor 400m champion, is the top seed in the women’s 400m and the No. 2 seed in the women’ 200m this week. Ryan Satchell (Central Islip, N.Y.), who was third in the men’s triple jump last year, is the No. 2 seed this year. Vicky Fouhy(Buckinghamshire, England) will look for another strong showing in the women’s mile after finishing second in at last year’s ACC Championships.
Anthony Kostelac (Charlottesville, Va.) is another individual title contender for the Cavaliers, entering the men’s 800m as the top seed. Adam Visokay (Ruckersville, Va.) is seeded second in the men’s 3000m and Aaron Worrell(Fort Eustis, Va.) is seeded fourth in the men’s triple jump, giving Virginia two of the top four seeds in that event.
The Cavaliers will conclude the indoor season March 14-15 at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. The team opens the outdoor season the following week when it hosts the Virginia Cup on March 22 at Lannigan Field.
