​In one day, we shaped a brighter future.

You showed your dedication to our student-athletes’ journies to excellence, and it was an amazing day of giving. Crusaders across the globe came together to contribute the highest single-day total in Holy Cross Athletics Giving Day history. We look forward to sharing final results next week.

Today, you went All In for Crusader Athletics. You showed the power of the Holy Cross community and committed to the continued development of ethical leaders, champion athletes, and men and women for and with others.

Thank you for your support and dedication to this special family. We wouldn’t be who we are without you, and we are humbled by your generosity.

Our next great moment awaits.

Go All In for Crusader student-athletes today!

May 14, 2021

Today, I’m asking you, and all Crusaders, to go ALL IN.

All year, our student-athletes have dedicated themselves to looking towards the future, growing stronger as individuals and teammates athletically, academically and personally.

With fortitude, we are continuing to prepare our 700 Crusaders to compete at the highest level. Just as they are committed to training and learning, to capitalizing on the opportunities in front of them, we are committed to our vision – delivering a transformative student-athlete experience driven by competitive success. 

Year after year, regardless of the circumstances, one thing remains constant — the strength of Crusaders when we go ALL IN for one another. Every dollar you give today will be dedicated to continuing our tradition of developing champions. And today, thanks to the Hope + Access campaign, all new and increased gifts are being matched 100% for financial aid. 

Together, we are strong. Together, we shape our future. Together, let’s go ALL IN for Crusader student-athletes.

Go Cross Go!

An Update from Head Coach Lindsay Jackson

May 12, 2021

Thanks for all your support during this unique year that we have all been working through. We were so excited to actually have a version of our season! We were grateful everyday and tried to take advantage of every moment we had to train and compete together. As most teams experienced this season, there were multiple unexpected curve balls thrown our way that took many shapes, sizes and severity. Thankfully, we are a better team for it and have worked hard through all these moments!

We finished the season 2-4, with all games being in conference. We made the conference tournament for the 4th time in the past five years. While we were not happy about how our tournament game went, we are very ready to get back at it, make adjustments and attack our season, conference games and tournament again with our fall season just four months away.

The Holy Cross Athletics Giving Day is approaching this Friday, May 14, and we need your support in whatever capacity you can give it! There are many things we are so thankful for that have been recent additions to our program because of your support, and we need to continue to build off of these additions. Because of your continued support, we have been able to consistently hire and have a second assistant for the past three years. It is a part-time position, and ideally we would like to make that a full-time position, but we need your help! From your support, we were also able to purchase wearable technology that allows us to track our distances, overall load, intensity, speed and many other metrics which we can analyze to help prepare us in a way that leads us to our best efforts.

I hope you will join us on Friday in contributing to Holy Cross Field Hockey, and, hopefully, we look forward to seeing you this fall!

March 20, 2021

Unique times call for a unique season, and we are in it! We have six regular-season Patriot League games with a Patriot League championship and NCAA Championship concluding in May this year. We have some restrictions that the league has put on every sport in regards to travel so we are not playing everyone in the league and we only have one game a week. All things considered, we are very excited to have these six games and so happy to be back playing and in a competitive season within the league! You can check out our schedule here.

We have started off with a loss to Boston University in our opening game and a loss is not our desired outcome. However, we came away from that game with a lot of confidence and some pinpointed areas to improve upon. We are motivated and focused as we go into Colgate this weekend and are taking each week and each team one at a time. We believe in ourselves and our ability to be our best and that our best can be the best of this league! We like thinking and performing at our BEST :).

The College has announced that a limited number of fans will be allowed at games and that definitely makes our current parent group very happy! We are planning to be able to broadcast both of our remaining home games on ESPN+ so check us out on game day and let your purple pride shine!

Just a couple dates to have on your calendar, besides our games: Friday, May 14th is our Athletics giving day and the CAF Golf Classic is slated for Monday, June 28th at Wanamoisset Country Club in Rumford, RI - FORE!

We can not do the things we do without your help, so thank you, as always, for your support! We hope to see you soon!

Crusaders All In this Giving Tuesday!

             

Holy Cross student-athletes are dedicated and resilient. When our world — and in turn, our campus life — changed this year, we adapted. Through challenge after challenge, our commitment to our education and our athletics never faltered. And today, we remain focused and hopeful for the future.

This is why we are asking the Holy Cross community to come together right now in support of our student-athletes.

Whether you make a gift to the Fund for Athletics Excellence or to one of our 27 varsity teams, your generosity helps position us for an even stronger return to competition.

In the face of unprecedented challenges, we know that one thing remains constant — the strength of Crusaders when we go all in to support one another. On this Giving Tuesday, your gift is for our future. With your support, our next great moment awaits.

An Update from Head Coach Lindsay Jackson

Greetings everyone! Well, the fall looks quite different for us and all fall sports, as we are searching for ways to be creative to stay connected and continue to train for a hopeful spring season.

Here on The Hill we have been able to take advantage of 1-2 field hockey sessions and 1-2 weight lifting sessions a week for those that have been granted limited access to campus. We currently have 20 out of our 26 team members coming to campus weekly. We are so thankful for these opportunities that we can train together and have been creative with virtual ways to stay connected with the entire roster.

Our first team practice just last week was a reminder as to how impactful and energizing the team atmosphere is and how it truly fuels our souls! We practice an attitude of gratitude every day.

We are still waiting on further guidance from the Patriot League as to what the spring season will look like, but we are hopeful and excited to be pursuing a Patriot League Championship! We have our eyes and hearts set on being the best in the league and use that to motivate us no matter where we are right now.

To stay up to date with us make sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram accounts — @HCrossFH.

We hope that you are healthy and safe and finding the moments in your day that make you smile and keep you moving forward! Happy Fall and all the best!
