  • The men's track and field team is set to begin its outdoor season this week at the Jerry Gravel Classic, hosted by Westfield State, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 23. This is the first time the Crusaders have participated in this meet, as the annual Husky Spring Open hosted by Northeastern was cancelled this year due to ongoing construction at the team's track.

The team will also host a decathlon on Wednesday and Thursday, April 17-18.
  • Freshman Robert Cacace (Yonkers, N.Y.) was the only Crusader to set a new Holy Cross school record during this past indoor season. The rookie posted a score of 3,968 in the heptathlon at the Crowell Open (1/5) hosted by Army.
