CULLOWHEE, N.C. – Western Carolina head track & field coach Jesse Norman today announced the addition of 12 student-athletes for the 2022-23 school year. The newcomers will compete in sprints, distance, pole vault, and jumps and consist of nine freshmen and three transfers including one graduate transfer.

“The coaching staff welcomes this incoming class of recruits to Catamount Nation. This year’s class was sought after as a group that could help close the gap on our competitors within the Southern Conference,” explained Norman. “We aimed to find student-athletes that were hungry to win team championships and would be willing to hold their teammates accountable to that goal. The search was far and wide which led us to land some great future leaders in this class that will help our pursuit of again winning the Southern Conference team championship.”
