Keisha Modi, Jumps

Lehigh T & F has had some significant success tapping into the international talent pool recently.
Keisha is the 1st recruit I know of from India in any sport here.

Her career best of 5.69 M in the long jump would have got her 3rd place in the indoor PL Tournament last year.

Joe Aglione, Hurdles Rumson Fair Haven

Interesting story. He was coming to Lehigh academically and then had a very good season. Now he is on the team.

I wonder how many stories like this we will see. Many of these athletes haven't competed since their sophomore year and they have already made their college choices.
