ECU, Staff reports

Friday, July 6, 2018

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.”

The Cincinnati Bearcats do not have much time to sulk after losing their marquee game of the college football season, and head coach Luke Fickell was mindful of that on Monday morning, just four days in advance of his team’s home kickoff against East Carolina on Black Friday.

The second…
