On September 21st, 2012, University of Richmond Athletic Director Jim Miller informed the members of the University of Richmond Track and Field program that the University would be cutting the mens indoor and outdoor Track and Field teams. These cuts were made in order that the University could add a Men's Lacrosse team. The Richmond Cross Country/Track program has been the epitome of what the NCAA promotes as Student-Athletes. We have succeeded both academically and athletically. The following are just some of the accomplishments by the Richmond Cross Country/Track and Field program over the past few years.
Spring 2011- Highest Team GPA all DI Outdoor Track and Field Teams
10 consecutive years on USTFCCCA All Academic Team for Cross Country, Indoor Track and Outdoor Track
2010- Qualified for NCAA XC Championships
2010-Top 25 finish in the NCAA
2010- Atlantic10 Cross Country Champions
