WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore Paige Sutherland (Groveland, Mass.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 28-October 4. Sutherland led the Holy Cross women's cross country team to a fifth-place finish at last Saturday's Murray Keatinge Invitational in Orono, Maine.
At the Murray Keatinge Invitational, Sutherland led the Crusaders by finishing in 14th place with a time of 17:58.16. She posted her fastest time of the season, and finished in under 18 minutes for the first time in her collegiate career. Sutherland also improved almost a full minute over her time in last year's Murray Keatinge Invitational.
Over the course of her Holy Cross career, Sutherland has now been the team's top finisher eight times in nine races, including all three competitions so far in 2009.
The Crusaders return to action on Saturday, Oct. 10, when they take part in the New England Championship in Boston, Mass.
