Sports seasons can be a grind, as athletes give their all to try and help their teams succeed day in and day out. At Christendom, the athletic department is seeking to make these seasons as easy as possible on students’ bodies, resulting in a new partnership with Performance Sport and Spine — a team of sports physicians committed to helping Christendom athletes avoid injuries as much as possible, making them that much more of a force on the field, the court, and in the classroom.
Christendom's student-athletes were awarded top honors by the USCAA at their annual awards banquet on November 8, with two athletes awarded the organization's prestigious Student-Athlete of the Year awards, while numerous others named to the organization's All-American teams. In addition, the Cardinals Collegiate Rugby Conference named six Crusaders to their All-Conference teams, making this fall one of the most awards-decorated in school history.
The Crusaders fought their way to a second consecutive trip to the NSCRO Rugby 15s National Championship Playoffs, defeating Duke University in a thrilling final to win the Cardinals Conference Champions Cup on November 3 and 4 in Roanoke, Virginia.
Christendom’s Lady Crusader volleyball team is heading to the USCAA DII National Championship in Virginia Beach from November 8-10. Earning a berth for the first time in school history, the Lady Crusaders will compete as the #3 seed in the championship after a stellar 2018 season.
