The True To The Cru Crew: Riley Zayas (Left), Luke Zayas (Right)

Welcome to True to the Cru, your 24/7 Source for UMHB Athletics News, Features, Photos and More.

True To The Cru was launched in November of 2020, with the intent to cover one of the nation’s most successful D3 athletic programs, and go in-depth with the latest from Cru athletics.

The site will feature daily coverage, and everything from game recaps, to interviews, to action shots from the latest happenings in UMHB athletics.

The site was started with the goal to do more than just recap games and dive into the stats. True To The Cru believes in ethical journalism and will go behind the score to bring you the stories that contribute to the rich tradition and the family atmosphere of UMHB athletics.

True To The Cru is an independent outlet created by two true fans, but is not directly affiliated with The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
