Bulldogs to Kick off 2008 Season at Fairfield Invitational

Sept. 11, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - This weekend, the Yale men will begin the year's cross-country season at the Fairfield Invitational. The 8,000-meter race, held at Fairfield University, will take place at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday. The promising Yale squad returns all but one of its top five scorers from last season, including this year's captain, senior Jake Gallagher.

This will be the Elis' first appearance at this invitational; they opened last season with a loss to Harvard. This year, the annual Harvard-Yale dual meet is scheduled for the end of September at Yale, giving the team a chance to tune-up at Fairfield before its first Ivy League competition.

Results from the Fairfield invite will be posted on the Yale Athletics website at the conclusion of the meet.
