Nearly 2,000 Worcester third through eighth grade students packed the Hart Center at the College of the Holy Cross yesterday to watch the women’s basketball team take on Brown University as part the team’s “Get Fit with the Crusaders Day.” 

The goal of the program is to use basketball as a tool to talk about health and physical fitness.
Head Coach Bill Gibbons told reporter Katelyn Tivnan his players are role models for the young fans.  “It’s never too early to start thinking about eating right, getting off the computer, and getting outside for fresh air and exercise,” said Gibbons.

Jeff Oliver, head strength and conditioning coach at the College, who gave a halftime presentation with Dietitian Kathy Eagan said, “The most important time to learn about nutrition and fitness is at a young age.” 

Holy Cross beat Brown 83-66.
