Joe Tierney won the IC4A 440 yard title in 1925, and James Quinn won the IC4A 100 yard in 1928 before going on to win an Olympic gold medal in the 4 × 100 m relay. Leo Larrivee is the only other Crusader to earn an Olympic medal when his 3000-metre team finished with the bronze in the 1924 Olympic Games. In the early 1960s, Charlie Buchta and Kevin Kilgallen were prominent Crusaders on the national scene. The Holy Cross men’s basketball team has won two national tournament championships having won the NCAA Tournament in 1947 and the National Invitation Tournament in 1954 at a time when the NIT was considered to be equal to if not more prestigious than the NCAA Tournament. The team also has reached the Final Four in 1948 and the Elite Eight in 1950 and 1953. In 2016, the team captured its first win in an NCAA Tournament game since the 1953 season. Notable former players include Boston Celtics legends and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductees Bob Cousy and Tom Heinsohn.On March 24, 2006, the Holy Cross men’s hockey team made history by defeating the Golden Gophers of the University of Minnesota in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament by the score of 4–3, in overtime. Coined as one of the biggest upsets in NCAA ice hockey history, never since the NCAA tourney expanded to sixteen teams had a sixteen seed beat a number one seed until again in 2015 when the 16th seeded RIT Tigers defeated the first seeded Minnesota State Mavericks by a score of 2–1. In its history, the Holy Cross ice hockey program has seen two NCAA appearances, and has won the Atlantic Hockey and MAAC three times (1999, 2004, 2006). The men’s ice hockey program competes in the Atlantic Hockey Association. Holy Cross has won more than 50 regular season and/or postseason conference championships throughout its Division I history. The majority of these have come in the Patriot League, where it currently competes for most sports. Historically, Holy Cross’ major rival has been the Eagles of Boston College, especially in football. Boston College does not share this view as far as Holy Cross being a “rival”. In 1896, Holy Cross and Boston College played the first football game between the two schools.The Holy Cross Crusaders have a group of loyal fans, sometimes called the “Mount St. James Faithful” or the “Hart Center Faithful”, the nickname coming from the athletic stadium at The College of the Holy Cross.The school color is royal purple. There are two theories of how Holy Cross chose purple as its official color. One suggests it was derived from the royal purple used by Emperor Constantine the Great (born about 275 A.D., died in 337 AD) as displayed on his labarum (military standard) and on those of later Christian emperors of Rome.* – The NIT was widely considered equally prestigious to the NCAA Tournament at the time, particularly because it was played at the high-profile Madison Square Garden.

The other version is attributed to Walter J. Connors, an 1887 graduate, and was printed in the October 1940 issue of the Alumnus. According to the account, there was a disagreement during the 1870s between Holy Cross students from Massachusetts and Connecticut concerning the schools’ baseball uniform colors. Those from Massachusetts purportedly favored the crimson of Harvard, while those from Connecticut favored the deep blue of Yale. Legend has it that a fellow student with a sense of diplomacy resolved the dispute in the chemistry lab, where he mixed copper sulphate (blue) with iron oxide (red) to produce the color of deep purple.
The Holy Cross golf team has also produced some exceptional golfers including Willie Turnesa who won two US Amateur titles (1938, 1948) and a British Amateur (1947), and Paul Harney who, after earning a medal as the stroke play champion at the 1952 NCAA Golf Championship, won six PGA Tour events and was inducted into the PGA of America Hall of Fame.To accommodate larger crowds, the Holy Cross game was routinely held at larger venues off campus, with the 1916 matchup taking place at the newly constructed Fenway Park. A record 54,000 attended the 1922 game at Braves Field, home of the Boston Braves baseball team. On November 28, 1942, Holy Cross beat BC in a huge upset by a score of 55–12, a result that proved fortunate for the losing Eagles. The BC team had booked their victory party for a popular Boston nightclub, but canceled after the upset loss. As a result, the Eagles were not among the nearly 500 who died or the hundreds more who were injured when the nightclub caught fire that night. The name was rediscovered by Stanley Woodward, a sports reporter for the Boston Herald, when he used the term “Crusader” to describe the Holy Cross baseball team in a story written in 1925. The name appealed to the Holy Cross student body, which held a vote later in that year to decide whether this cognomen or one of the other two currently in use – “Chiefs” and “Sagamores”- would be adopted. On October 6, 1925, The Tomahawk, an earlier name of the student newspaper, reported that the results of the ballot were: Crusaders 143, Chiefs 17, Sagamores 7. Holy Cross is a founding member of the Patriot League, with one-quarter of its student body participating in its varsity athletic programs. Principal facilities include Fitton Field for football (capacity: 23,500) and Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field for baseball (3,000), the Hart Center at the Luth Athletic Complex for basketball (3,600) and ice hockey (1,400), the Linda Johnson Smith Soccer Stadium (1,320), and the Smith Wellness Center, located inside the Luth Athletic Complex.The Holy Cross Crusaders are the athletic teams representing the College of the Holy Cross. They compete in NCAA Division I, primarily as members of the Patriot League. In ice hockey, a sport not sponsored by the Patriot League for either sex, the Crusaders are members of two other leagues, with men competing in the Atlantic Hockey Association and women in Hockey East. The men’s rowing team is part of the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges. Of its 25 varsity teams, Holy Cross supports 12 men’s and 13 women’s sports, giving Holy Cross the largest ratio of teams-per-enrollment in the country.

In 2016, the men’s varsity four finished fourth at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championship. The women’s team competes in the Patriot League and also holds membership in the Eastern College Athletic Conference. As the NCAA and Patriot League do not sponsor men’s rowing, the men’s team was granted an acceptance into the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (EARC), which is composed of the traditional Ivy League schools plus other select universities.
The Holy Cross baseball team won the NCAA National Championship in 1952 and remains the only team from the northeastern part of the United States to have won the College World Series. The Crusaders also reached the College World Series in 1958, 1962, and 1963. In the last two of these seasons, the team featured pitcher Dick Joyce, who briefly made the major leagues, and third baseman John Peterman, who after a short minor-league career went on to become a successful entrepreneur who was parodied on Seinfeld. The Crusaders won their first Patriot League Baseball Tournament title in 2017 and returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1978 where it defeated No. 25 Nebraska.The two schools renewed their rivalry in basketball on November 22, 2010, as part of the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight, a national effort to bring attention to Jesuit education. In a game held at BC’s Conte Forum, Boston College posted a 69–56 victory, the Eagles’ 16th in their last 17 games against Holy Cross. On November 18, 2011, the Crusaders defeated the Eagles 86–64 in Worcester.The last basketball game between the two schools was played on January 17, 2006, a 63–53 win for Boston College at Worcester’s DCU Center. Later that year, BC’s athletic director, Gene DeFilippo, caused a minor controversy when he announced that the school would not schedule any more basketball games against Holy Cross, claiming that it was not beneficial for BC.The women’s ice hockey team competed in the Division III New England Hockey Conference from its creation in 2015–16 until moving to Division I play in 2017. This team competed as a Division I independent during the 2017–18 season as part of a scheduling agreement known as the New England Women’s Hockey Alliance before joining Hockey East for the 2018–19 season.

By the late 1970s the Holy Cross game had become more of a tradition than a rivalry, as Holy Cross football began to cease to be a major power. By 1980, the game was no longer part of the student ticket package, and was mostly attended by alumni. In 1986 Holy Cross changed the direction of its football program, joining the Division I-AA Patriot League, and terminated the series. BC had won 17 of the last 20 games.
The Holy Cross women’s basketball team has also made several appearances in the postseason including 12 trips to the NCAA tournament as well as one appearance in both the Women’s National Invitation Tournament and the Women’s Basketball Invitational. They are 1–12 in the NCAA Tournament with the lone win coming in 1991 as an upset over 6th seeded Maryland. This is the only victory in the NCAA Tournament for any team from the Patriot League.

“I was not planning on coming back once the job offer was given to Michael Alford in December. You asked me to give it a chance which I agreed to do. My salary request was an amount that I thought would allow me to look past working for someone that I didn’t respect and didn’t feel I could trust. After the negotiation process I am more convinced that I was right in how I viewed things in December. A few hours after this email, FSU sent out a press release stating that the athletic department would immediately be starting a national search for Krikorian’s successor. FSU’s original extension offer was to pay Krikorian an average of $510,000 over the next three years, $100,000 more than the next highest paid women’s soccer coach.FSU didn’t agree to this, but did offer one final deal the morning of March 29 which offered Krikorian $650,000 in guaranteed money with more potential bonuses that could take the salary over $800,000.
Krikorian shared in his email resignation letter to members of the FSU media that the university offered him a generous contract and that his decision to resign on March 29 was not based on money.Furthermore, the recent FSU soccer budget shared by public records request showed the Seminoles had the second-biggest budget in the country at $2.79 million for the most recent season trailing only Texas A&M at $3.09 million.
This despite a perceived slight or lack of trust that led to coach Mark Krikorian abruptly resigning and leaving the program on March 29 mere months after winning his third NCAA Championship at FSU.
Krikorian was the highest-paid coach in women’s college soccer at $450,000 annually for the last two years. He was one of two coaches in the country whose annual salary was more than $275,000.
From there, the conversation between Krikorian and FSU shifted to a series of one-year deals as it became increasingly more obvious that the coach would not be staying at FSU long-term.The Democrat reached out Krikorian for comment on the release of these email records, and he has not responded. Alford and McCullough similarly were contacted and declined comment on the matter, instead focusing on the future of the program.
