Tiffany Reid Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior Tiffany Reid (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from April 26-May 2. Reid won two individual events and was a member of two winning relay teams, as the Holy Cross women's track and field team finished in fourth place at the Patriot League outdoor championship.

During last weekend's meet, Reid won the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.05 seconds, and took first in the 200-meter dash with a time of 24.39 seconds. She also ran a leg on Holy Cross' winning 4x100-meter relay team (47.97 seconds), and the victorious 4x400-meter relay team which set a school record with a time of 3:48.97.

Reid earned first team All-Patriot League honors for her finishes in each of those four events, and has now been selected All-Patriot League eight times during her collegiate career. She owns school records in the 55-meter dash (7.27 seconds), 60-meter dash (7.65 seconds), 100-meter dash (11.84 seconds), 200-meter dash (24.26 seconds) and 300-meter dash (41.03 seconds), while running a leg on school record-setting relay teams in the 4x100-meters (47.66 seconds), 4x200-meters (1:42.82), 4x400-meters (3:48.97) and sprint medley (4:06.66).

Holy Cross returns to action this Friday and Saturday, May 7 and 8, when it takes part in the New England outdoor championship in Dedham, Mass.
