CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s track & field team opened the outdoor season Saturday by winning seven events at the Virginia Cup at Lannigan Field. The Cavaliers split a pair of dual meet results at the meet, downing Norfolk State 102-34, but falling to Liberty 84-65.

“The performances overall were competitive with a lot of learning involved,” said head coach Bryan Fetzer. “The first meet of the outdoor season is a time for teaching and getting familiar with new events that are not contested indoors. There is a transition shifting from indoors to outdoors. We handled it well and its sets us up for continued success in the season.”
