Women's Cross Country Heads North After A Break
Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 3, at Murray Keatinge Invitational, Orono, Maine, 10:00 a.m.
- The Holy Cross women's cross country team will travel to Orono, Maine for the Murray Keatinge Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 3. The event is slated to begin at 10:00 a.m. The Crusaders look to improve on last year's performance in the event when they finished seventh of seven.
- Last season at the Murray Keatinge Invitational, sophomore Paige Sutherland (Groveland, Mass.) was the second Crusader to cross the line with a time of 18:54.09. It was Sutherland's only race of the season that she was not the top Holy Cross performer. This season, Sutherland continues to lead the Crusaders, as she has been the top Holy Cross performer in both races that she has competed.
- Holy Cross' newcomers are helping pace this season's performances. Nine newcomers have competed for the Crusaders this season. Freshman Stephanie Bray (Fairfax, Va.) was the top rookie performer at the Blue Devil Invitational and the UMass-Dartmouth Invitational, while freshman Elizabeth Harkins (Latrobe, Pa.) was the top rookie finisher at the National Catholic Championship.
