"The field hockey team has been blessed with an outstanding support-base of generous donors and alumnae, and loving friends and family. Without you, our experience and success would not be at the level that it is today. I am beyond grateful to be a UMass student athlete as it has shown me what teamwork, resilience, and accountability truly are. You have made this all possible. Thank you, and Roll UMass!!!"
"Life as a student athlete at UMass has been greatly improved by the generosity of our committed fans and donors. As a member of the hockey team we have experienced the impact of upgraded facilities and know how crucial they can be to success on a national level. Thank you to all of the donors and future donors who help make our experience so exceptional. Your generosity does not go unnoticed. Go Minutemen!"
Women's Track & Field
"Our program is lucky enough to have a strong and committed network of family, friends, and alumni who enable our team to grow constantly both on the track and in the classroom. Spring trips to Florida, the new locker rooms, and perhaps most importantly, our new study room, have given us an important edge up on the competition both athletically and academically. None of this would have been possible without the help of such a dedicated group of supporters. On behalf of myself and the entire track team, thank you for your continued support."
"UMass Basketball is in my DNA. My family and I have seen firsthand the positive impact that this program has had on our lives, due in large part to the benefits at our fingertips. The generosity of our donors through the Minuteman Club provides my teammates and I with first-class support that helps us succeed on and off the court. Your dedication to our program does not go unnoticed, and we will continue working every day to keep elevating our program to make you proud."
"The generous donations our teams' supporters have made continue to move our program forward in all categories. The new equipment and updated facilities have helped to inspire and encourage UMass Women’s Lacrosse to keep pushing and competing at new levels. Myself and my teammates are so grateful for our amazing donors and we're so excited for another incredible year here in Massachusetts!"
Men's Cross Country
"Not only has being a UMass student-athlete help me develop important skills, but it has provided a community to support one another. A community like this would not be possible without the donors and alumni that support our team and help provide us with equipment and expenses. Being on the Cross Country team is truly an amazing experience and I am proud to be a minuteman."
