  • Crusader Soccer-Mackenzie Folk

    I am thankful to have a senior season so I can get on the field and play for my high school again before I go off to college. I also am happy to play with my friends I have made over the years for one last time, some of which I don’t normally play with unless we are together at Faith. For me, having fun while also doing what I love with the team makes it an unforgettable last season to remember.  The thing that makes Crusader Athletics and the Women’s Soccer program great are the people. We have our teammates and coaches supporting us and pushing us to be all you can be. The support off the field carries into the classroom as well. We have a community of people who genuinely care about you, not just while you are playing but as a person as well.

  • Crusader Volleyball-Isabelle Guerrero

    I’m grateful to have a senior season so I can finish out what I started in the volleyball program. I’ve looked forward to completing 4 years on varsity since my freshman year, so I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to complete that in some sense.  I’ve made the best relationships with all people involved in Crusader Athletics which makes every aspect of playing a sport ten times more enjoyable. Being friends with not only my teammates but also the coaches within the athletic department makes the whole experience worth it. Everyone involved in the athletic program has helped make the program feel like one big family.
