Christendom College earned the USCAA’s 2019 President’s Cup for Academics this past weekend, as announced by the collegiate sports organization. The award, which is given to the school with the most Academic All-Americans and whose athletes have the best GPA, is Christendom’s first and a testament to the college’s strength in balancing sports success with academic excellence.
From Christendom’s volleyball team reaching its first National Championship to the rugby team earning trips to two separate National Championships, the 2018-19 academic year was full of defining moments for Christendom Athletics. At the center of these moments were 37 senior student-athletes who earned numerous honors during their four years, leaving behind a legacy of sportsmanship and perseverance that the college will remember for years to come.
After a scorching week that saw Christendom’s baseball team go 5-0 and softball team go 5-1, the college’s best players have burst to the top of the stat rankings for the USCAA. Leading in RBI totals, home runs, and more, Christendom’s baseball and softball players are heating up just in time for the second half of the season.
The first innings of Christendom baseball and softball in 2019 are set to begin next week, with the Crusaders and Lady Crusaders beginning their respective seasons. The Crusaders will open their season at home vs. Penn State York on Tuesday, March 12, while the Lady Crusaders will begin on the road against Trinity University on Friday, March 15.
