Kraft on Sheva:
"Caitlyn has performed at a high level over a great range of races and comes in with the fastest 3,200-meter PR of any recruit we have had here at ECU. Besides good times, Caitlyn is going to bring a lot of positivity to the team. She smiled more than just about any recruit we've ever had come in, so I know she's going to make the hard practices that much better. Caitlyn was a life-long soccer player and will now be able to focus all of her training on one sport. She has a great foundation and I think that we can really improve her speed as well as her strength on the cross country course."
