'Cats Lose Recruit Cotton to Virginia
Not for the first time in the past few years, Villanova has lost a track recruit to the University of Virginia. Villanova was in the running for top 800/1500 runners Robby Andrews and Anthony Kostelac the past two years, but lost out in the end to the University of Virginia program. Andrews won the NCAA indoor 800 meter title this year as a frosh and led UVA to the 4 x 800 title at the Penn Relays. One more name can be added to the list: Dave Cotton of Daniel Hand High School in Madison, CT had verballed to Villanova earlier this spring, but decided recently to attend Virginia, where his father ran in the 1980s. Dave has run 9:35 for 3200 meter, 9:45 for 2 miles, and 16:30 for 5000 meters.
