Courtesy of our friends from Holy Cross’ athletic department, here is a quick note about today’s theme for the women’s basketball game against Brown University:
On Tuesday, Jan. 8, the Holy Cross women’s basketball team will host its second annual “Get Fit with the Crusaders Day” when it takes on Brown at 11:30 a.m. at the Hart Center. Over 1700 Worcester public school students will be in attendance to cheer on the Crusaders and to learn about nutrition and physical activity.
“We’re excited to again be hosting Worcester public school students,” Holy Cross women’s basketball head coach Bill Gibbons said. “This is a great opportunity for the kids to get to Holy Cross and to see the team play, as well as learning about physical fitness and nutrition. We expect an even bigger crowd than last season and the Hart Center should really be rocking!”
Holy Cross head strength and conditioning coach Jeff Oliver and nutritionist Kathy Eagan will give a halftime presentation to teach the students about eating right and exercise.
