Feature on the Crapolfest
Andrew Crapol was a four-year letterwinner for the William and Mary Tribe men's
soccer team who lost his battle with cancer during the spring of 2009. An
extremely coachable player, the Williamsburg native played in 38 career matches
for the Tribe, scoring four goals, including the game-winner against Coastal
Carolina during the 1999 season. He graduated from the College in 2001, earning
a degree in economics.
The First Annual Crapolfest included social events both nights and culminated
with a tailgate before the Tribe's match with George Mason on October 3.
Earlier in the day, 225 people participated in a 5K run/walk and a 1-mile fun
run that morning. That afternoon, 125 people also participated in a mini-golf
tournament in Williamsburg.
Al Albert, the Associate Director of Development at the College, helped
organize the First Annual Crapolfest, and was more than pleased with the event.
"It was a fantastic first year for the event", he said, "and we all
are looking forward to the event again next fall."
