"What I am excited about is to see how our seniors finished out their careers and have passed the torch to our 'Next up' underclassmen. Our seniors (Madison Laib, Sharon Tomlinson, Erin Edmondson, and Rachel Tomlinson) started this program with me from the bottom up and their commitment and sacrifice is embedded in the foundation of this program. Our future is bright with an abundance of talent on our roster and underclassmen that played valuable minutes for us this year. We have a group of young ladies that are ready to step up and make this program their own as we pursue excellence in this next phase of the program. Our mission is to honor Christ and further the kingdom with the skills and talents that He has given us. And our commitment to this team is based on honoring Christ and laying down our lives for our teammates unconditionally and sacrificially as we strive to be Philippians 2:1-11 teammates."
Dear Freshman Marissa, Graduating from high school and going to college over a thousand miles from home is exciting and kinda scary, but all in all, it is one of the most amazing experiences you are going to have. Don't let this amazing opportunity of going to Bible college and playing college basketball go to waste
Dear Freshman Erin, I really shouldn’t be writing you. As someone who has read plenty of books and watched tons of movies/tv shows with time travel in them, I’m breaking the most important law of time travel: To not interact with your past self, because it could disrupt the entire space-time continuum. Oh, well.
Dear Freshman Sharon, you finally made it to college! I know this is all so new and pretty overwhelming, but get ready for the greatest, most challenging chapter in your story so far. You’re about to meet some of the best friends you’ll ever have, experience some pretty uncomfortable things, learn a crazy amount, and persevere in ways you never knew you needed to or could.
Dear Freshman Madison,
You probably don’t know me. That may sound weird since I am you, but I think you would be really surprised as to who you are at the beginning of your senior year. You’re going to change so much.
