For the first time in school history, Grace College was awarded the NCCAA Presidential Award.
Grace President Dr. Bill Katip and Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe were present at the 2021 NCCAA national convention to receive the all-sports award.
The Presidential Award is calculated based on team finishes at NCCAA national championship events. Grace had a memorable year at NCCAA competition, claiming three national championships.
Men’s soccer won the NCCAA crown in the fall. Men’s tennis and men’s track and field won their respective NCCAA banners on the same day during the spring (May 14).
Grace received runner-up points for women’s soccer and women’s track and field. Women’s golf, men’s basketball, volleyball and women’s basketball also earned important points in route to Grace’s Presidential Award.
“This accomplishment is a direct reflection of the dedication to Christian excellence from the Grace College administration as well as our coaching staff,” Briscoe said. “We deeply believe in the message of the NCCAA as we seek to build champions of character on and off the field of competition, so we are honored to receive the Presidential Award.”
Grace earned 83.5 points across all sports with Dallas Baptist in second place with 78. — from grace.edu
