Cross country season gets under way

Central Penn will field women’s and men’s cross country teams with a total of 13 runners (11 women and two men). They will participate in five events this season, including two intercollegiate invitationals. The first event––the Ben and Tim Day 5K–– is this Saturday, Aug. 25, at Hershey High School.
