An Amazing Place for an Amazing Race

April 12th, 2015 by Jessica McCaughey


Twenty teams of two gathered outside of the Hogan Campus Center to begin the third annual Holy Cross Amazing Race, sponsored by the Student Government Association and the Office of Recreation, Intramurals, and Club Sports. Teams competed for clues in both physical and mental challenges including completing puzzles, a field goal and more to advance through the on-campus course.


In a second attempt for one of the three cash prizes, student blogger Andrew Cook ’15, right, and cousin Ben Nicholson ’17 represented Team To In-Fitton-y and Beyond, a reference to the Fitton Football Stadium at Holy Cross. Alas, first place was taken by Will Bowers ’15 and Gavin Millay ’15, followed by Joseph Metzger ’17 and Joseph DeVivo ’17 in second place and third to Justin Marino ‘16 and Jeff Daniels ’16.
