Erin Linnehan Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior Erin Linnehan (Litchfield, N.H.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from February 13-19. Linnehan helped lead the Holy Cross women's indoor track and field team to a fourth place finish at last weekend's Patriot League Championship.

At the Patriot League Championship, Linnehan won the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.83 seconds, beating out Taylor Funk of Bucknell by .01 of a second. She earned her spot in the finals of the event by running the third-fastest time in the qualifying heats at 8.93 seconds. Linnehan broke her own school record in the 60-meter hurdles with the time of 8.83 seconds, and has qualified for next weekend's New England Championship in the event.
