Sean Gustin Garners National Attention for Being a Rare Two-Sport DI Athlete

April 23rd, 2014 by 

Juggling is an art that almost anyone with three tennis balls and some free time to watch a YouTube tutorial can master. However, if you want to try juggling an economics text book, a hockey stick, a baseball glove and your social life, the best person to call for advice is Holy Cross’ own sophomore pitcher and forward Sean Gustin, of Stoneham, Mass.

During his two years at Holy Cross, Gustin has been a member of the men’s ice hockey and baseball teams. This year in particular, Gustin has become an integral cog in the works for both teams. This season, Gustin played in 33 games as a forward on the ice for head coach Paul Pearl. He scored a career-high five goals and posted five assists, including the first assist of his career. Gustin also has played in 17 games on the mound in 16.2 innings of relief for head coach Greg DiCenzo. Gustin struck out the first collegiate batter he faced during his freshman season and has earned a vital role out of the pen coming into clutch innings for the Crusaders.
