Noting the Hoos

  • Conor Murphy will become just the second-ever Cavalier to compete in the mile at the NCAA Indoor Championships – Henry Wynne (’17) is the only other tor in the mile at the meet when he won the title in 2016
  • Murphy is set to make his first appearance at any NCAA Championship meet
  • Appleton makes her second consecutive trip to the NCAA Championships after competing as a member of the All-American Virginia DMR squad last season
  • Appleton is second on the UVA all-time list in the mile trailing Mia Barnett by just .28 seconds – Barnett set the record at last season’s NCAA Championships
  • Owayne Owens has qualified for his fourth NCAA Indoor Championships – the four-time All-American looks to join former teammate Jordan Scott as the only Cavaliers to claim the indoor triple jump title
  • Alix Still makes her second appearance at an NCAA Championship meet – she finished 13th at the meet in 2021
  • Each of the four Cavaliers currently hold a Virginia indoor record in an event: Appleton (3k,DMR), Owens (Long Jump), Murphy (Mile/DMR), Still (Pentathlon)
  • Appleton and Still will each look to become the first UVA woman to win an NCAA Indoor title – four Virginia women have won national championships in the AIAW
  • Michaela Meyer became the first Virginia woman to win an NCAA Championship when she won the 800-meter title at the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Championships
