Bulldogs Welcome 13 Outstanding Recruits for 2017-8 Season

 

Bulldogs Welcome Incoming Class

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Following a historic 2016-17 season, the Yale women's cross country and track and field program is proud to welcome 13 women to their ranks for the 2017-18 season. These athletes will bring much welcomed depth to a team that has made substantial strides over the course of the past year. The cross country team earned its second consecutive second-place finish at Heps, in addition to its first berth in the NCAA National Championships since 2001. The track and field team saw some of its best performances in years.

The incoming recruits add not just depth but talent across events like pole vaulting and the shot put to help develop a more well-rounded team. These athletes are leaders: two-thirds of them served as captains of their teams. They are also among the best back home: eight of them own multiple school/league records. They have dominated in state competitions, with some even impressing at the national level.

The new Bulldogs will be led by Yale's captains, rising senior Kelli Reagan for cross country and rising senior Dana Klein for both seasons of track and field.

Below is a more detailed description of each incoming student-athlete.
