A portion of the stories appear below, along with links to read the complete articles.
WINONA LAKE – In their second full season under head coach Bill Barr, Grace’s baseball team has transformed its identity. The Lancers are characterized by hard work and fundamentals – two traits that Barr is hoping will translate to success in the 2014 season.
A long, snowy winter has only increased the team’s excitement for baseball season, and Grace is ready to prove itself on the diamond in March.
“I am excited about the culture that is now being formed within our program. The expectation for working hard has become a staple during our fall and preseason practices,” Barr said. “Even though we have had a long winter, our players have handled the demands exceptionally well. They have demonstrated a resolve regardless of the circumstances.”
WINONA LAKE – During Grace College’s spring break, the women’s soccer team will embark on an international mission trip to Nicaragua from Feb. 28-March 10.
The Lady Lancers will be centered in Granada, Nicaragua, assisting The Bridge ministry center.
One of the primary opportunities is in helping The Bridge launch a 32-team soccer ministry for youth and adults in the Central American country.
