Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams Geared for Improvement

The soccer season is well underway for both the male and female programs at Greenville. Then men’s team started off their season with an impressive victory against Trinity International on August 31. Greenville hoped to use the momentum from the win in their next game against Dominican (IL), but it wasn’t quite enough, and the Panthers lost a close one in their second battle of the season 0-1. However, the heart of Greenville's squad was really tested in games three and four. Both games went into double overtime, and were tremendous tests of endurance and resilience. The matches both ended in ties, but the Panthers proved their toughness in the extra minutes. Trinity Christian and Rose-Hulman were the teams that tested GC in games three and four. ...

Faith in Sports: Cody Lopez

The world of sports is a riveting place that has captivated the eyes of audiences everywhere since the beginning of human existence. From the day a boy is born, daddy clothes him in a football jersey and subjects him to any sport contest he can find on T.V. As the boy grows up, he picks up several societal messages that tell him sport is life. Unfortunately the people we idolize playing sports on screen don’t always have the best morals. We worship prima donnas, quickly forgiving their antics off the field because they are such gifted athletes. I won’t buy it. I believe that all our worship should go to God and God alone. No, sports are not the devil, like Bobby Bucher’s mother would suggest, and we should not deter kids from playing a game they love. ...

Sports Debates: Pay College Athletes?

Written & Media by Joseph Hubbs. The great Tim Allen once said that college is great because it gives us college football. College sports give copious amounts of joy and pride to countless Americans, especially those who went to the college they cheer for. The athletes involved work their tails off every day for our enjoyment. Our country watches college games, purchases jerseys, and analyzes these so called “amateur” athletes to the point where anyone coming into America would think college sports a critical part of our country. And they are, but what do the athletes get out of the exploitation? Nothing, absolutely nothing. Several influential people have tried actively to find a way to give college athletes, mostly football and basketball, some kind of payment for all the money they bring in to the schools. However, on the other side of the spectrum naysayers prepare to do anything that keeps money out of athlete’s pockets. ...
