- The Holy Cross women's cross country team took a week off before traveling to the Central Connecticut Mini Meet in New Britain, Conn., on Saturday, Oct. 24. The day's events are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.
- Holy Cross last competed at the mini meet in 2006 with seniors Sarah Croteau (Westminster, Mass.) taking 19th with a time of 12:09, Margaret Fox (Natick, Mass.) in 26th with a time of 12:15, Claire Luke (Delmar, N.Y.) in 34th place with a time of 12:24 and Ariana Coniglio (Revere, Mass.) in 45th place with a time of 12:41.
- The Crusaders were last in action on Oct. 10 at the New England Championship where sophomore Paige Sutherland (Groveland, Mass.) led Holy Cross for the eighth consecutive race, including all four races she has entered this season. Sutherland was named Patriot League Runner of the Week for her team-leading sixth place finish with a time of 18:12.
- The Crusaders will use the mini meet to prepare for the upcoming Patriot League Championship hosted by Colgate on Oct. 31. Holy Cross was selected sixth in the preseason poll and the Crusaders are looking to better that prediction and improve on last season's sixth place finish.
