Spring sports will light up Christendom’s home fields this weekend, with the rugby team and women’s softball team both competing against top-ranked teams this Saturday, April 9. Christendom’s rugby team will take on the University of Richmond at 1:00 p.m. on Crusader Field, while the softball team will play a double-header against Sweet Briar College at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m at Bing Crosby Stadium.
Crusader rugby is riding a wave of momentum going into this weekend, after strong, back-to-back tournament showings the past two weeks, including a sweep of the Four Leaf 15s Rugby Tournament in New York City. With a current record of 14-4, the Crusaders will aim to achieve their first home victory of the season on Saturday against the Spiders of University of Richmond, in anticipation of the 3rd Annual Shield Rugby Match against Franciscan University of Steubenville next Saturday.
Christendom’s women’s softball team is currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak, after double-header sweeps of Trinity University and Valley Forge College. With a current record of 4-2, the young team will look to light up the scoreboard one last time in front of the passionate Crusader fanbase at Bing Crosby Stadium, located in Christendom’s hometown of Front Royal, Va.
