ND Track and Field: Irish pass on holiday meet, will have month off

Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, December 6, 2011


The Irish will have a longer break from competition than initially expected, as they will no longer be sending any athletes to the Grand Valley State Holiday Open this weekend.

Notre Dame was initially going to travel to Allendale, Mich. for an early season tune-up for the team’s multi-eventers. The weekend off will kick off Notre Dame’s Christmas break a week early, and now they will have over a month off between last weekend’s Blue and Gold Meet and their return to action Jan. 14 at the Bob Eubanks Open.
