Duke Women’s Track
I realize track/cross country are not on the radar sports for most but track is a sport that makes the ACC as strong as it is. It looks like Duke will have a chance to pick up some Capital One points next year in Women’s Track & Field. This year Duke finished tied for 4th at the ACC Championship meet and didn’t make much noise at the NCAA Championships. Yet it seems that Duke was the leading pick for the top high school distance runners in the country this year. Three of the top four girls in the country have elected to attend Duke. The Meier sisters from Michigan, Hannah and Haley, and Wesley Frazier of North Carolina. This weekend at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals held at NC A&T Wesley Frazier won three national championships (5K, 1 mile, and 2 mile). These three recruits alone could push Duke to great success in the next four years. Maybe even compete with Oregon at the distance events.
