NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Yale women's cross country team will begin the 2008 season at the Fairfield Invitational, hosted by the Stags of Fairfield University.

The 5,000-meter women's race will take place at 10:30 a.m. and will feature Fairfield, Fordham, Sacred Heart, Bryant, Rhode Island, Southern Connecticut State, New Haven University and, of course, Yale.
