Virginia Redbirds thinlegs to be more competitive
With the addition of Triopia participants to the Virginia track team, the 2015 squad will be far more competitive this year. Coach Megan Smith will once again be at the helm this season, beginning her third year as boys’ head track coach at Virginia.
Coach Smith feels her squad will be more than competitive in the relays, field events, and the sprints, along with the mid-distance events. The Redbirds thinlegs have 14 members participating in 2015.
Senior Dean Arendt (Triopia), according to Coach Smith, has an opportunity to have an outstanding season in the field events, while the relay teams also should excel in the 4x400 and 4x800 events.
