Women Win Third ACC Cross Country Championship

Women Win Third ACC Cross Country Championship In October, the Virginia women’s cross country team won its third ACC Women’s Cross Country Championship, its first since winning back-to-back titles in 1981 and 1982. The Cavaliers edged second-place NC State, pulling ahead in the final kilometer of the 6K race. “It was a tremendous effort by the whole team,” Virginia women’s head coach Todd Morgan says. “We were down going into the final kilometer, but we dug deep and finished strong to earn the win.”

Hoos doing an Ironman?

Hoos doing an Ironman?

Serena Bolliger (Col ‘07) and Jay Ward (Col ‘07) finished the Ironman 70.3 California in Oceanside on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Ward is already a full Ironman, having completed Ironman Texas in 2012. He will be doing Ironman Tahoe later this year.

The Ironman race is a 2.4-mile swim and a 112-mile bike ride followed by a marathon run (26.2 miles) and takes anywhere from 9 hours (for a pro) and 17 hours (the cutoff) to complete. The Ironman 70.3 is also known as the half Ironman distance, but it is certainly no small feat.
