Cross Country Releases 2012 Competition Schedule

Harvard will set its sights on the Heptagonal Championships Oct. 27 in Princeton, N.J. (Harvard Athletic Communications).

– The Harvard cross country team announced its 2012 schedule Monday, and the Crimson will compete in seven meets in the upcoming season.  The Crimson kicks off the 2012-13 season at the Bryant Invitational Sep. 8 in Smithfield, R.I. 

“I am really looking forward to this cross country season,” said Jason Saretsky, director of Harvard track & field and cross country.  “The season is laid out where we have a competition roughly every two weeks and I feel confident it should provide a great opportunity for our student-athletes to shine at the end of the season when it matters most.”

The cross country team will travel to New Haven, Conn., on Sep. 14 for the annual HY(P) meet.  On Sep. 28, the Crimson travels to the Paul Short Invitational hosted by Lehigh.   Two weeks later, Harvard will split its squad, sending runners to either the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational Oct. 12 in Madison, Wis., or the Princeton Invitational Oct. 13 in Princeton, N.J.  Following another two week rest, the Crimson travels to Princeton, N.J. for the Heptagonal Championships Oct. 27. 

The NCAA Regionals will take place Nov. 9 in Hammonasset, Conn., and the NCAA Championships and ECAC/IC4A Championships take place a week later on Nov. 17.
