​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!

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 Michael Lucas

I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful and safe fall. Even though our fall season was canceled, our women have been training hard on their tennis games and conditioning this year on courts all across the country. The team is staying connected through Zoom meetings and virtual charity events. We are hopeful to come back in January for our spring season and begin training together indoors.

We again have a challenging schedule in the spring with our Patriot League matches and play against some of the strongest programs throughout New England. Our team goal this spring is to continually improve throughout the season and battle our opponents to the bitter end in every match!

I would like to thank so many of you who supported our program last year by attending matches and making gifts to the Crusader Athletics Fund — we could not do it without you! We have a great group of women who are working hard and are dedicated to improving over the course of the year. We will continue to keep you all updated with our schedule as soon as we are able.

With your help, we are working hard to provide these young women with a wonderful tennis experience, all while maintaining their academic priorities. Our women’s tennis team continues its perfect 100 percent graduation rate again this year, and Holy Cross' athletic teams are tied for first in the nation with eight other colleges and universities with an overall graduation rate of 99 percent. Thank you for your support of our team!

We hope things improve and that you can join us at a match, and if you can, please let me know that you are coming so that I can introduce you to our team! Thank you for your support of our program, and I look forward to reuniting with you during the season. Please feel free to email me at any time — it would be great to hear from as many alumnae as possible!

Go Crusaders!
