Davidson commits to Providence

Just a week after becoming the fourth-fastest runner in the nation, Saratoga Springs senior Hannah Davidson made another big leap, committing to run for the next four years at Providence College.

“It was mostly the team and the coach,” Davidson said. “I left there after my official visit and knew that’s where I wanted to go.”

Davidson, finished in fourth-place at the Nike Team Nationals on Dec. 1 running with the Kinetic Running Club. The Saratoga-based running group finished in third place at the national cross country team event in Portland, Oregon.

“I wanted to go somewhere with a strong program, that had a tradition of some sort,” Davidson said. “I’m leaving Saratoga and I wanted to go into another program like that.”

Friars head coach Ray Treacy enters his 16th season at the helm of Providence. The women’s cross country team recently made its 26th appearance at the Big East Championship, earning a second-place finish, the fifth-consecutive year the Friars have finished in one of the top two spots. Providence captured the NCAA Northeast title to qualify for the NCAA meet where the women’s team finished in 26th place.

“A lot of my school choices were not near home,” Davidson said. “Providence was the only one near home.”

Davidson is expected to sign her National Letter of Intent, legally committing her to Providence College during the initial signing period for field hockey, soccer, track and field/cross country in early February.
