WASHINGTON - Following a successful outdoor season that saw six Hoyas garner All-America recognition, Director of Georgetown Track & Field / Cross Country Patrick Henner is already focused on next season as he announced the incoming class for the 2014-15 season. The class boasts talent from around the country and several national accolades including two high school national champions and six high school All-Americans.
Men's Incoming Class
"With two national high school champions and the fastest 800-meter recruit in Georgetown history, our staff is very excited about the recruiting class arriving on campus this fall," Henner said. "Coach Brandon Bonsey did an outstanding job of gaining commitments from New Balance Outdoor National Mile Champ Christian Alvarado, New Balance Indoor Two Mile Champion Charles Cooper and Joe White who ran 1:48.75 as the silver medalist at the National High School meet. Adding these student-athletes to our young talented team should get the Hoya track & field family excited about the future."
