Published in the December 7, 2016 issue of The Bells
As Cru football heads into another playoff game, sports fans are hopeful for a championship win and ready to watch other Cru sports teams take the field and the court when the spring semester arrives. From baseball and softball to tennis to golf to basketball, sports fans can expect teams that will represent them well
Cru Baseball and Softball kick off their seasons this coming February. They play various teams throughout their season, which commences in February and finishes up in April.
Having already started their seasons, women and men’s basketball will continue their season into the spring, ending their regular season games in February. Our women’s team leads with a 4-6 record, and our men are right behind with 2-5 record. Both teams are made up mostly of freshmen, which allows for a lot of energy on the court. . And even though the teams are young, they have both proven that they are not easily defeated.
The golf team will also start playing again in February after a brief hiatus. Having placed first in two previous tournaments, the team will continue to strive for the best.
“I’m excited to see what the rest of the season brings,” said sophomore engineering major, TJ Crenshaw. “Overall, we’ve really grown close. It’s been a bonding experience I won’t likely forget, and I’m excited to see how far we can make it in the upcoming games. Go Golf Cru.”
Many students are also preparing to go out and support our teams.
“I can’t wait to go support all of the people I know.” Says junior marketing major Kelly Carlin. “I have lots of friends playing in a lot of the spring sports. Sometimes people forget to come out and support these teams, but it’s a great experience and the teams really appreciate it.”
Spring sports are on the way, so get ready to go out and support the Cru.
