Congrats to the Holy Cross Crusader Football Team!
It was cold. It was rainy. It was worse than rainy. It was down pouring. Yet, we arrived at Fitton Field with positive minds and anticipation. We were hoping that the Holy Cross Crusaders would come out victorious. They did.
The game was exciting. Because of the rain, we wore rain ponchos and still were soaked, but it was worth it. I was surprised at how many people were in attendance with the poor weather, but I felt such a sense of pride going to Holy Cross in that moment. I was so happy to be a member of the Holy Cross community, and the passion in the atmosphere was ubiquitous. The players were slipping and sliding, the crowd was erupting, and the stadium was roaring with cheers and applause for the team as they advanced and are playing next week in South Dakota.
At halftime, we went to Kimball to warm up, refuel, and eat before returning to the stadium to see the Crusaders come out victorious. I saw the excitement on the players’ faces, and I was happy to see that all of their hard work had paid off. I was starstruck, and I could not believe that I actually go to school with these people, some of whom are my friends. This community facet is another great component of Holy Cross, and I am grateful for the opportunity to say that I attended a historical game to witness great people do great things.
