Bob Credle Inducted To Holy Cross Hall Of Fame

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross Varsity Club has announced the 2013 selections for induction into the Holy Cross Athletic Hall of Fame. Included among the 2013 inductees is former track and cross country runner Bob Credle (Class of 1965).

Credle was a middle distance and cross country runner for Holy Cross from 1961-1965. While serving as a team co-captain during his senior year, he won the New England outdoor championship in the 440-yard run with a time of 48.5 seconds. Credle was also the New England outdoor champion in the 880-yard run as a junior with a time of 1:52.8 seconds. A key part of Crusader teams which captured the New England title in both his junior and senior years, he also placed third  in the 600-yard run at the NCAA indoor championship in 1964 with a time of 1:10.8. With that mark, Credle broke the school record in the 600-yard run, which would stand for eight years.

This year's other inductees are Kevin Hamilton (Class of 2006, basketball), Annie Lavigne (Class of 2001, field hockey), Tyler McGregor (Class of 2006, ice hockey), Jack Whalen (Class of 1962, football, lacrosse) and the 2002 Women's Varsity Eight (rowing).

These new honorees will be formally inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 4, at the Varsity Club's annual dinner, to be held in the Hogan Campus Center.
