NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Connecticut College women's cross country team will compete at the NESCAC Championships on Saturday morning and will look to be competitive against a strong field which features a plethora of nationally-ranked programs. The event will be hosted Tufts for the first time since 2002 and take place at Franklin Park in Boston.
Connecticut College has been led by sophomore Meredith Cronin (Foxborough, Mass.) for the second straight season. She has been the team's top finisher at every meet since her arrival on campus and most recently placed 31st out of 307 competitors at the Connecticut College Invitational two weeks ago.
Beyond Cronin, the Camels have regularly gotten contributions from all four classes among their top five and seven finishers throughout the year. Tarvis Hintlian (Winchester, Mass.), another sophomore, has been the most consistent and was the second finisher for the team at two of the four meets so far this fall. Senior Eva Brydson (Cape Elizabeth, Maine), freshmen Caroline Grape (Weston, Mass.) and Caroline Stevenson (Tarrytown, N.Y.), and junior captain Hannah Noyes (Vinalhaven, Maine) round out the list of the team's top competitors.
The women's 6,000-meter race will commence at 10:00 a.m. and admission to the championship event is free. An awards ceremony is also set to start shortly after the women's results become official.
