Hokies sign three-time VHSL mid-distance champion

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech track and field and cross country director Dave Cianelli announced Tuesday that Clint Gault has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Hokies for the 2018-19 season.

“Clint has won quite a few races at Poquoson,” head cross country and distance coach Ben Thomas said. “I like how he races, and he has shown good range from 400m to 5k XC. I am really excited to see how fast he can go in our program and am looking forward to working with him.”

A native of Poquoson, Virginia, Gault comes to Blacksburg as a three-time state champion in the VHSL’s outdoor 800 meters and indoor and outdoor 1,600 meters. His personal bests are a time of 1:56.64 minutes in the 800, 4:14.64 in the 1,600 and 4:16.14 in the mile.

“I chose Virginia Tech because I wanted to be part of a great school, academically and athletically,” Gault said. “Also, I wanted to be a part of a championship winning team and I think I got that with Virginia Tech."

The Hokies will open their 2018 indoor season at the Nittany Lion Challenge from Jan. 12-13, held at Penn State’s campus in State College.
