Oct. 4, 2003


The women's cross country team defeated Harvard at the 27th annual HYPs at Boston's Franklin Park, but fell to Princeton. Princeton finished with 15 points, while Yale scored 53 points and Harvard amassed 70.

Yale's top runner was freshman Cara Kiernan, who came in 6th place with a time of 17:46. She was followed in ninth place by Melissa Donais, who ran a 17:58, and Rebecca Hunter, who finished in 10th place with a time of 18 minutes.

Princeton handily swept the event, finishing runners in all top five spots. Tiger Emily Kroshus won her third meet in a row, coming in first with a time of 17:08.

"Princeton very strong today," said head coach Mark Young. "Yale was comparably strong against Harvard, and we're happy to beat them for sure."

The Bulldogs will return to Franklin Park on Friday to compete in the New England Championships.
