East Carolina track and field di­rec­tor Curt Kraft, along with cross coun­try head coach Josey Weaver, will of­fi­cially wel­come 22 new­com­ers to cam­pus this fall to at­tend East Carolina and com­pete for the Pi­rates.

The group features seven men and 15 women, in­clud­ing trans­fers from four dif­fer­ent NCAA Divi­sion I schools. Raleigh na­tive Alex Bose­man is a male dis­tance run­ner who comes as a grad­u­ate trans­fer from UNC Wilm­ing­ton.

There also is a heavy prep in-state pres­ence, which in­cludes J.H. Rose grad­u­ate and dis­tance run­ner Ammah­tul­lah Ab­del-Rah­man.

“She has wit­nessed what Pi­rate Na­tion is all about and we could not be more ex­cited to have her,” Kraft said.

Anna Bris­tle, from Mon­roe High, won the North Carolina out­door 2-A state cham­pi­onship in the 3,200 race and has a per­sonal-best time in the event of 10 min­utes, 52.18 sec­onds. Abby Sweeney (Dis­tance/​Owings, Md.) was a state cham­pion in the 3,200 in out­door and in­door this year.

“This group of ath­letes will have a ma­jor im­pact on our pro­grams for years to come,” Kraft said. “Not only are they great ath­letes, but even more im­por­tant they are great stu­dents.”
