"I want to get into communications, but we don't have that major at Holy Cross, so I picked philosophy," Sutherland said. "It was either that or English, and I love my intern's job because there's a lot of reporting involved and going out to get stories."
Culkeen said shot put is her favorite event because she's being doing it the longest. She excelled all through high school and has continued throwing the shot all through college. Culkeen was named Crusader of the Week in May after helping lead her team to a sixth-place finish at the New England Championships with a sixth-place finish in the shot (12.83 for a personal best) and 13th in the discus.
"That's also the most difficult event to improve on so it gets a bit frustrating at times," said Culkeen, who is majoring in psychology and premed with plans to go to grad school. "I also like the discus because it all depends on your technique. It's difficult to throw a lot during the summer, but we have a workout schedule to follow. I'd much rather be doing it with my teammates pushing me, but right now I'm on my own at the Beverly Y."
Hartnett also had an outstanding year, breaking two of her own school records. At the Patriot League championship, Hartnett was second in the 800, shattering her old mark of 2:11.28 that she had set earlier this year, with a time of 2:09.33.
She was named to the All Patriot League First Team. She anchored the 4x800 relay team that finished first in 8:58.41 and qualified for the ECACs. Hartnett also broke her own 1,000 mark at the indoor New England championship with a time of 2:51.50 to take third. She was named to the Academic All Patriot League team.
