Scoreboard: 7th of 10 at Central Connecticut Mini Meet, New Britain, Conn., 10/24

  • The Holy Cross women's cross country team will travel to Hamilton, N.Y. for the Patriot League Championship on Saturday, 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.
  • Last year at the Patriot League Championship, sophomore Paige Sutherland (Groveland, Mass.) led the Crusaders with a 23rd place finish and time of 22:21.1. Sophomore Elizabeth Humphries (Siler City, N.C.) was the second Crusader to cross the line in 51st place with a time of 22:34.9.
  • At last weekend's mini meet, senior co-captain Meghan Dunne (Mendham, N.J.) finished the 3k race in 34th place with a time of 11:08.76. This was the second time this season that Dunne has led Holy Cross as she was the top finisher at the UMass-Dartmouth Invitational.
