DURHAM, N.H. –Rob Hoppler, head coach of the University of New Hampshire women's cross country team, has announced that two student athletes have signed National Letters of Intent to attend UNH and run cross country beginning next fall.
Riley Gilmore joins the Widcats after a successful high school career at Haverhill High School in Haverhill, Mass. Gilmore will compete in both cross country and track and field at UNH after competing in cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track for the Hillies. She is a four-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star and owns the 17th fastest 2-mile time in Merrimack Valley Conference History.
Hannah Peterson comes to UNH with intentions to compete for Coach Hoppler on the Cross Country team and Coach Cory Schwartz on the Nordic skiing team. A Durango, Colo. native, Peterson placed fifth in Colorado Region 6-4A Cross Country Championships in the fall.
"We are excited to have both Riley and Hannah joining the New England and America East Champion Cross Country Team," Coach Hoppler said. "We think they will fit in to the tradition of excellent student-athletes here at the University of New Hampshire."
