Head Track & Field Coach Michelle Eisenreich Announces Freshman Throwers

Providence, RI- Director of Cross Country and Track & Field, Michelle Eisenreich has recently announced her incoming class for the 2010-2011 track. 

"I am very pleased with our recruiting class this year," said Eisenreich.  "Our two men have produced the best high school marks of any athlete I have recruited to Brown in the last 10 years. Both women also have strong marks but are undertrained in track and field. I expect to see some huge improvements from them in their first year. More importantly than their high school accomplishments, each of these athletes has a tremendous work ethic and drive to be successful in track and field."
