Virginia Tech Giving Day 2021
Track & Field/Cross Country

"During my 18-year tenure here at Virginia Tech, our cross country and track and field programs have achieved a high level of success. The numbers tell our story- A total of 15 ACC Team Championships, 17 NCAA individual National Champions, 95 All Americans who have earned a total of 258 All American Honors, 200 ACC individual champions and on 12 occasions since 2008 our teams have placed in the top ten at the NCAA National Championships. Our men's team won the 2019 Indoor and Outdoor ACC championship and with a very young team I believe both our men and women will challenge for ACC team titles again in 2020 and will be very strong at the national level as well."


"The financial support we receive from our supporters is critical to our continued success. We would not be able to give our student-athletes and our coaching staff the tools they need to compete at the highest level without YOU!"

​​- Dave Cianelli - Director of Track and Field and Cross Country
