Men’s Lacrosse Drops Turnpike Trophy Game

Jack Godar Editor-in-Chief Friday’s matchup was a big game for the Holy Cross Men’s Lacrosse team for two reason: Senior Day and the Turnpike Trophy game against the Boston University Terriers. Seniors Logan LeBlond, Henry Lilly, Jake Maruna, and Rich Palazzese were honored for their four years of commitment to the program and it marked the first time Holy Cross broke out the black uniforms. However, Boston got off to a strong start, putting up two goals in the first period while the Crusaders scored none. In the second period, the Terriers really pulled away, scoring five straight goals in … Continue reading Men’s Lacrosse Drops Turnpike Trophy Game

Track and Field Impresses at Home Meet

By John Albinson Chief Sports Editor   Last Saturday, the Holy Cross Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams competed at the Holy Cross Invitational, held right here on campus at the track. Plagued by bad weather last year, this season’s meet was a much different story, with sunshine and clear skies holding up throughout the entire day. The Home Meet serves as the pinnacle of the regular season, where (mostly) every athlete is entered into their primary event. Holy Cross showed up on Saturday, with Women’s team winning the meet with 206 points, and the Men taking second in … Continue reading Track and Field Impresses at Home Meet

Project Empathy: A Study in Human Connection

By Meghan Shaffer ‘20 Culture Editor Sometimes, you encounter something that reminds you just how human the people you encounter everyday are and of the beauty and rawness of that humanity. That is exactly the message put forth in “Project Empathy,” which was performed by six Holy Cross students for the first time this past Sunday. The six students—Brandon Brito ‘20, Trishala Manandhar ‘21, Ali Riddell ‘19, Will Walker ‘19, Alyssa White ‘18, and Caylie Whiteside ‘21—were paired with each other and entrusted to tell their partner’s story. The story could be about anything, as long as it was something … Continue reading Project Empathy: A Study in Human Connection

“Jane the Virgin” Season 4 Finale Recap

Anamika Dutta Chief Culture Editor   After a brief hiatus, I’m back to my usual T.V. reviews. The season finale of “Jane the Virgin” premiered last Friday, and fans already knew something big was going to go down (thanks in part to Justin Baldoni’s Instagram, warning fans to stay off all social media at all costs). In similar fashion, I warn you not to read on unless you’ve seen the finale because there will be major spoilers ahead. Or if you’re like me, you didn’t avoid social media and found out what happened before even watching the episode…Oops. So if … Continue reading “Jane the Virgin” Season 4 Finale Recap

The Meek Mill Situation

Luke Walsh ‘19 Culture Editor   Throughout January and February, the entire Philadelphia area centered around two things: the Eagles and Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares.” It was a great two months. But while we were partying (somewhat rioting) in the streets, the man that brought us all together through one song wasn’t with us. Rather, he was in a jail cell because he violated his parole for the gun and drug charges with which he was convicted at 21 years old.   Meek Mill’s situation exemplifies select problems with law enforcement, the judicial process, and imprisonment in this country. … Continue reading The Meek Mill Situation

A Conversation with Chris Fox ’18, Candidate for State Office in New Hampshire

James Gallagher Editor-in-Chief   Q: First off, what led you to the unorthodox decision to launch a campaign while still a senior in college, and what challenges has that presented?   A: It really was a specific moment. I remember I was working at my dad’s office over winter break (medical chart scanning – very mundane) and as I was reading the local news of the day, I saw that the New Hampshire House had voted on party lines by a vote of 170-169 – with the Republican Speaker breaking the tie – to reject a Senate bill that would … Continue reading A Conversation with Chris Fox ’18, Candidate for State Office in New Hampshire

The Supreme Court, Morality, and an “Out of the Box” President

Spencer Caron Chief Opinions Editor   Out of the three branches of government, the judicial branch is the least media-friendly.  The lower courts are collectively known as the place to which busy people hate to be summoned for jury duty.  The appeals process is so complex that even those versed in political science have a hard time making heads or tails of it all.  The Supreme Court has the best chance of making the news, as it annually weighs in on some of the most divisive national issues, but even then, only some issues make for good 30 second media … Continue reading The Supreme Court, Morality, and an “Out of the Box” President
