“Did they get to that meeting?”
“No. At least, I don’t think so. We were on our way there when we were separated. My father tried to come back for me, but something stopped him.”Read More
The Providence College Men’s Track Team has been incredibly busy since the last issue. The men had an impressive showing at the Big East Championship held at the Armory in New York, N.Y., from February 18-19.
