Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College women's cross country team, coached by George Suitor (28th Season), will compete in the NCAA Division III New England Championships on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Bowdoin College. The Bantams have enjoyed a stellar 2019 campaign so far with first-place finishes in both the Tri-State Invitational in Rhode Island and the James Earley Invitational at Westfield State University. Senior co-captain Samantha Feenstra (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) just missed earning New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference honors with a 15th-place finish in the conference championships on November 2.
