Sometimes you have nothing more to say. Rest in peace, Hale Ross.
“It is very difficult to make an impact on an NCAA Division I Cross Country Team as a walk-on athlete. Hale came to Yale having played football as an undersized defensive end on the Potomac School’s team. He had only one year of Cross Country under his belt. Through pure effort and determination, Hale worked his way onto our varsity roster as a freshman and into our scoring team this year. But his athletic accomplishments only tell part of the story. He was above all a teammate and friend: eager to contribute to our success in any way possible. We are all privileged to have called him one of our own.” — Coach David Shoehalter.
