Gabe Piepergerdes Named ckSmithSuperior Crusader of the Week
WORCESTER, Mass. – Sophomore Gabe Piepergerdes has been named the ckSmithSuperior Crusader of the Week, for competition from May 6-12. Piepergerdes helped lead the Holy Cross men’s outdoor track and field team to a 21st-place finish at the IC4A Championship last weekend.
During Sunday’s competition, Piepergerdes was crowned the IC4A champion in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 52.97 seconds. His time was the second-fastest in Holy Cross history, behind only his own school record of 52.61 seconds set at the Patriot League Championship on May 4. Piepergerdes also became the first Holy Cross student-athlete to win an event at the IC4A Championship in nearly 50 years.
The 2018-2019 season is now complete for the Crusaders.
