It really is good to see Holy Cross moving in the right direction. They have posted their first recruit on the NCAA website and I can tell you that she is an excellent player, having seen her play for several years now. With the Beantown tournament coming up in a few days maybe the new Assistant Coach can find a few overlooked players and continue to move that program into a competitive one at the D1 level.
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- The College of the Holy Cross says it will stop using the image of a knight as a logo and mascot even though trustees last month decided to keep the nickname Crusaders for its athletic teams.
The president of the Worcester (WUS'-tur), Massachusetts, Jesuit college, the Rev. Philip Boroughs, wrote in a letter to students, alumni and staff Wednesday the depiction of a knight with the moniker Crusader is an inevitable reminder of the religious wars and violence that marked the Crusades.
Boroughs says such imagery "stands in contrast" to the college's stated values" but notes the word "crusader," in its modern sense, means someone who stands for positive principles.
In place of a knight, Holy Cross will use an interlocking HC on a purple shield as its primary logo.

pu$$ies are now running the show in these places. GOD help us all. even the wimps that are offended.
maybe the Schultz estate can make up some Peanuts logo for the little pu$$ies
Idk the Crusades were pretty bad lol... I would imagine you would have a problem with a college team naming themselves ISIS.

ya, let both play in ECAC. with Merrimack being added already and now HC and (who is Sacred Heart?) Don't get me wrong, Merrimack got up to speed very quickly but it will be a while for HC or WHO? to duplicate that. just another crumb for the west to eat up when posting how easy the schedule is. it gets old fast.
Holy Cross will be okay. Sacred Heart will be okay. What BC needs is for someone to become almost as good as the Eagles, so they have to break a sweat before March. Ideally that would be a HEA team, but improvement by Harvard would also help. UMD and St. Lawrence will provide competition in some years -- probably not in 2018 -- but those games occur so early in the season.
