MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University men's track and field program has announced the addition of 13 student-athletes for the 2015-16 academic year, including five who will also compete for the men's cross country team.

"The coaches are very excited about this year's recruiting class," head coach Bert Rogers said. "It is well rounded and really fills out an already strong returning team. It is our goal to be a complete track & field team and this year's recruiting class helps us be just that."

The group features individuals from eight different states, including two Wisconsinites and six others from Illinois.

All will be eligible immediately and ready to contribute to a squad that claimed runner-up finishes at both the BIG EAST Conference indoor and outdoor championship meets - the program's highest-ever finish. The Golden Eagle men had seven individual champions combined at both conference meets with 28 earning All-BIG EAST recognition.
