GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for April 2, 2020.
College Crosse News
With the news that the NCAA has approved an extra year of eligibility for spring sport athletes who had their season short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re starting up a new feature. Honoring and highlighting those seniors who, despite having the opportunity to remain in school for another season, have chosen to move on with the next phase of their life and potentially college careers. Even though the opportunity is out there, it’s not something that’ll work for everyone and those who move on still unfortunately had their season cut short.
So we want to write, talk, and share our memories and thoughts on some of those seniors who blessed us with incredible moments over their careers. And we start it with the one player who so far has announced he is moving on from college; Penn State’s Grant Ament.
Much appreciated thank you guys!— Grant Ament (@GrantAment) April 1, 2020
