April 23, 2014

McPherson College head men’s basketball coach Tim Swartzendruber has announced the dates and times for the 2014 McPherson College Basketball Camp. 

The dates for camp will be June 9-12 with all sessions being held in the McPherson College Sport Center. Sessions will run each day from 9-11 a.m.

The camp is for any boy or girl who will be in grades 2-8 in the fall of 2014. Campers will be divided according to age and ability.

The program will consist of teaching basic basketball fundamentals including:  shooting, passing, dribbling, rebounding, footwork and defense along with team and transition drills.  Contests will held in the following areas:  hot shot, free throw, one-on-one, and three-on-three.

“I have always enjoyed teaching the game of basketball and certainly look forward to working with youth from our area,” Swartzendruber said.  “I believe our camp format is engaging and fun.  We have tremendous enthusiasm at our camp and kids learn a lot. We have a tremendous staff lined up and I believe each camper will have a great camp experience.”

McPherson College women’s head coach Gordon Reimer, along with McPherson College men’s assistant coach TJ Eskildsen, highlight the staff which also will include members of the men’s and women’s teams.  

Each camper who registers by the deadline will receive a T-shirt.  The deadline to enroll is May 30.  Forms are available on the McPherson College men’s basketball website or by contacting Swartzendruber at swartzet@mcpherson.edu or 620-242-0576.

KCAC honors BC's Johnson

By Bethany College Sports Information
April 23, 2014

LINDSBORG — The KCAC has announced the IMA Corp. 2014 Men's Golf Champion of Character Award winners.

Junior Ben Johnson, West Sussex, England, of the Bethany College men's golf team was named an All-KCAC Champion of Character Award Winner.

Johnson is the son of Lorraine Pether, and is majoring in sports management.

"Ben is serving as an RA this year and helping freshmen and some upperclassmen navigate through college," Bethany coach Jon Daniels said. "He is also helpful anytime I need something and has served with our team on various community service projects like the elementary school marathon, the elementary school fall festival, the pancake feed for Kiwanis, and cleaning the ranges on the golf course of 'lost' range balls."

This season, Johnson earned three KCAC Golfer of the Week awards, ranking first in the KCAC in individual standings with 100.5 points prior to the KCAC Championships. Johnson finished fifth in the KCAC Championships, and won both the Swede Invitational March 27-28 and the Bethel Invite March 29-30.

The All-KCAC Champion of Character Award recognizes student-athletes who have demonstrated the five NAIA Champion of Character core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship, and servant leadership in the classroom, field of play and in their approach to life.

Coaches are asked each season to nominate one student-athlete from their team who best demonstrates the NAIA Champions of Character program. The KCAC recognizes one student-athlete on every team throughout 19 conference-sponsored sports.

The criteria for being selected as an All-KCAC Champion of Character student athlete are: a full-time student in good standing; currently participating in a varsity intercollegiate program; one full academic year of full-time status and participation in the varsity intercollegiate sport program; a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher; the nominee has not been ejected for fighting or other sportsmanship reasons during the current season.

Wildcat thinclads take 2nd to Berean

By Steve Sell
April 23, 2014

MOUNDRIDGE — The Moundridge and Berean girls are going to battle for Class 2A supremacy until the time they compete next month at the State Track and Field Meet at Wichita’s Cessna Stadium.

The Wildcats won nine events on Tuesday during a five-team meet they hosted, but Berean’s depth was too much to overcome.

The Warriors scored 161 points to 115 1/2 for the Wildcats. The other teams were basically bystanders, with Goessel (48 1/2), Herington (19) and Marion (14) rounding out the field.

Peri Lange doubled for the Wildcats in the triple jump (32-2 1/2) and 300 hurdles (50.20), as did Anna Stucky in the 100 (13.2) and long jump (15-3 1/2).

Other MHS winners were Rylie Dick in the high jump (4-10), Brooke Holloway in the shot (29-1/2), Ashley Holler in the pole vault (7-0) and Whitney Fiedler in the discus (88-1/2).

The 4 x 400 relay of Stucky, Holler, Lange and Cassidy Siemens (4:16.2) also grabbed the gold.

Berean’s boys flexed plenty of muscle with 215 1/2 points. Moundridge was second with 77 1/2, while Goessel (45), Marion (14) and Herington (12) completed the order.

MHS’ Joel Holloway doubled in the jumps, winning the long (18-11 1/2) and triple (40-9 1/2).

Deshawn Pfeiff went 12-6 to win the pole vault.
