Bill Cupelo '09 (Hopkinton, Mass.) Baseball "Giving back to the baseball program — that gave me so much — is very rewarding. I learned valuable life lessons playing baseball at Holy Cross, one of which was the importance of supporting your teammates. After witnessing the passion and energy of our alumni while playing at Holy Cross, I started the Baseball Diamond Club, with the help of the school and fellow alumni. Our mission is to support the current team through a mentorship program and sponsorship of numerous activities throughout the season. Our hope is to inspire the next generation of alumni to carry on the Club's mission." Joseph Weber '05 & Maggie (Fontana) '05 (Clifton Park, N.Y.) Hockey and Basketball "Our experiences as student-athletes provided us with important lessons and relationships that shaped who we are. Through our experiences on the basketball court and ice at the Hart Center, we learned teamwork, perseverance, loyalty, and dedication; values that we incorporate into every facet of our lives and hope to instill in our kids. The relationships we developed provided us with an extended family that remains a significant part of our lives today. We donate to CAF to continue the tradition of giving, providing resources to enhance the experience for current and future Crusaders in the same way former Crusaders did for us." F. Shannon Sweeney '08 (Washington, D.C.) Swimming "Swimming was an integral part of my wonderful Holy Cross experience. To compete as a Division 1 athlete and have the support of Coach Parenteau for my participation in R.O.T.C. is something for which I will always be grateful. Balancing swimming, class work and R.O.T.C. duties prepared me well for the multiple demands of working on a ship at sea. The leadership lessons from my coaches and teammates directly influenced my ability to lead a division of 20 sailors at my first assignment. I give back so that today's student-athletes can be better men and women for others after graduation." NONPROFIT ORG.
