After back-to-back trips to the Collegiate Rugby National Championship, it is safe to say that Christendom has solidified itself as one of the top small rugby colleges in the nation. That fact is thanks in large part to alumnus Patrick Audino
The Crusader athletic teams are back in season, with each of Christendom’s fall sports competing over Labor Day weekend. Both men’s and women’s soccer teams emerged victorious from their opening games, while volleyball competed in the USCAA Tip-Off Invitational and cross-country made a strong showing at the Bridgewater Invitational.
The Crusaders started their season off with a hard-fought win against the Berkeley-New Jersey Bulldogs. Christendom got on the board early, with Sophomore Joe O'Reilly scoring in the 9th minute off of a pass from Freshman Nicholas Foeckler.
Christendom's Cross Country Teams competed in their first meet on Saturday, travelling to Bridgewater College. The men and women of Christendom put in some good numbers, finishing 7th and 5th respectively in the team results.
Christendom freshman Owen Kennedy, at 6-foot-8, towers over most people on campus. His height, athletic talent, drive, and character power him to success both on and off the basketball court – facts that led him to earning the college’s Thomas S. Vander Woude Athletic Scholarship to attend Christendom this year.
