The Vincennes University Cross Country and Track and Field coaches have had a very busy summer hitting the road, looking to sign VU runners for next season.
Assistant Cross Country/Distance Running Coach Tyler Steigenga has helped sign nine middle and distance runners for the 2022-23 season.
“We are bringing in a lot of talent with this year’s recruiting class, especially on the middle distance side,” VU Assistant Track and Field/Distance Coach Tyler Steigenga said. “It will give us a lot more flexibility with different events on the track. This fall in Cross Country we are looking forward to finishing a lot higher at the National meet than we did last year. Our depth is tremendously better and our frontrunners will allow us to be a lot more competitive this fall. I am very excited to see what we can do.”
The incoming VU running recruits include a North Montgomery graduate. Elijah McCartney, of Crawfordsville, was an individual qualifier at semi-state in his junior and senior seasons. He was first team all-conference all four years.
McCartney has also completed ultra-marathons and many half marathons.
