WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore Christian Brooks (Nutley, N.J.) has been named the GoHolyCross.com Crusader of the Week, for competition from October 14-20. Brooks helped the men's varsity four to a second place finish at the Head of the Charles Regatta on Saturday.
In the club four race at the Head of the Charles, Brooks navigated Holy Cross through one of the most difficult courses in the country, to a second place finish out of 49 boats. The Crusaders posted a time of 16:39.519, as they earned a medal at the Head of the Charles for the first time since capturing bronze in the 1994 club eight race.
In Holy Cross' only other race so far this season, Brooks helped lead the varsity eight to a first place finish out of 14 boats at the Snake Regatta.
Holy Cross returns to action this weekend, when it takes part in the Princeton Chase Regatta on Sunday, Oct. 27.
