Katelyn Hartnett Named To Track & Field Academic All-Patriot League Team

WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross junior Katelyn Hartnett (Danvers, Mass.) has earned one of 10 spots on the inaugural women's indoor track and field Academic All-Patriot League team, as voted on by the Patriot League's track and field sports information directors. To be eligible for the Academic All-Patriot League team, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average and be a starter or key player in his/her sport. The Academic All-Patriot League team was added for all sports beginning in the 2010-11 season to honor additional student-athletes who excel both on and off the field.

Hartnett, an Economics and Accounting major, holds a 3.51 cumulative grade point average. She is a two-time member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll. At the 2011 Patriot League Indoor Championship, Hartnett finished second in the 800, re-breaking her school record and posting an ECAC qualifying time of 2:12.32. Hartnett also holds the Holy Cross school record in the 1,000 with a time of 2:53.42.

Qualifying members of the women's track and field team will continue indoor competition at the New England Indoor Championship on Feb. 25 at Boston University.
