Elizabeth Marvin Wins Women's Cross Country Award

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The women's cross country team held its annual season-end banquet on Tuesday, Dec. 7. Junior Anne Lovelace was elected captain for next year and sophomore Elizabeth Marvin was awarded the women's cross country award.

Lovelace has been a Bulldog since her freshman year, when she was the fourth runner at Heps and the fifth runner at NCAA Regionals that year. This season, she was the team's second finisher at the Penn State National and at Heps. She was also the team's third runner at NCAA Regionals this year, placing 75th out of 247 runners.  Lovelace is a psychology major in Pierson College.

The John Clearly Michael Stanley Class of '54 women's cross country award is given to a competitor who has shown good performance, commitment and dedication to the team. Elizabeth Marvin was consistently a top finisher for the Bulldogs this season, placing first for the team most recently at Heps and NCAA Regionals. She is an undeclared resident of Timothy Dwight College.

Lovelace, Marvin and their teammates will next compete on Jan. 15 at Yale's College Invitational, to be held at Coxe Cage.
