Track and Cross Country
On Friday, a quintessentially Buffalo, N.Y., day of mud and blustery snow, junior Kieran Tuntivate and sophomores Hugo Milner and Lisa Tertsch slogged along faster than the competition to advance to next week’s NCAA National Championships in Madison, Wisc.
With the blink of an eye, junior Kieran Tuntivate raced past the finish line, inching out the Tigers’ Conor Lundy for a first-place finish at the Ivy League Heptagonal Cross Country Championship.
On Wednesday afternoon, Thomas announced she would not be competing for the Crimson squad in her senior season. On Thursday, the tri-captain signed a deal with New Balance. The company announced the deal on Monday.
With the HYP meet occuring last week and an upcoming meet at the Roy Griak Invitational next week, Harvard fielded significantly fewer runners this year than previously before, with hopes of resting the majority of its racers to prepare for later meets.
