Grace’s Remarkable Season Ends at NCCAA World Series

Monday, May 19th, 2014

A memorable 2014 campaign for Grace’s softball team ended on Saturday as the Lady Lancers fell 7-2 to Union at the NCCAA World Series.

The Lady Lancers (29-30) earned fourth place in the national tournament and concluded the season with the program’s most wins since 1994.

After the game, Brooke Shell was named an NCCAA All-American to cap off her outstanding junior season.

Grace was consistent in placing runners on the basepaths against Union’s pitching, but the Lady Lancers struggled to convert runners into runs. Grace notched 10 hits, but the team stranded 10 baserunners in the contest.

Union, who outhit Grace 13-10, plated runs in four different innings. The Bulldogs (31-26) took an early 2-1 lead thanks to a pair of solo home runs.

Brooke Shell scored Grace’s first run in the bottom of the third after reaching base on a leadoff single. After reaching third base on a steal, Shell scampered home on a sacrifice fly from Clarissa Knight. Shell’s stolen base tied the junior for the program’s career steals record. She also increased Grace’s single-season stolen base mark to 38.

Union went on to increase its margin to 7-1 before Grace’s final at-bats. In the seventh inning Hannah Adams lifted a long fly ball to the center field fence, and the ball appeared to cross the temporary fencing. But the potential three-run homer was ruled a ground-rule double as the portion of fence toppled to the ground upon collision. Knight came home to score on Adams’s hit, but the Lady Lancers’ two-out rally ended with two runners on base.

Shell finished 3-for-4 from the leadoff position, and Chelsea Whitesell was 2-for-3.

The 2014 season under head coach Heather Johnson provided a number of milestones. Grace racked up the team’s most wins since 1994, its most league wins ever, and its first national tournament appearance since 1997.

Grace Advances to Final Day of NCCAA World Series

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Grace’s softball team survived its first elimination game at the 2014 NCCAA World Series on Friday to advance to the final day of the tournament.

The Lady Lancers (29-29) were bumped from the winners’ bracket by top-seeded Shorter to open the day, but Grace responded with a 3-1 victory over Campbellsville in the evening to survive and advance.

Grace is one of the final four teams remaining in the tournament. The Lady Lancers will play Union (Tenn.) on Saturday at noon. Grace must win three consecutive games on Saturday to reach the national championship at 6 p.m.

In Grace’s first game of the day, the Lady Lancers were knocked off by the tournament’s No. 1 seed Shorter University, 14-0.

The Hawks (40-10) got their bats started from the onset of the game. Shorter’s first four batters reached base safely and all four scored, capped off by a two-run home run.

Shorter went on to rip off four runs in the second, one in the third, four in the fourth and one more in the fifth. The Hawks had 15 hits, which included four home runs and seven extra-base hits.

Grace’s offense, on the other hand, was stifled by pitcher Maddie Bray. Bray tossed a five-inning shutout, holding the Lady Lancers hitless on two walks. Grace’s best chance to score came in the second inning, but Becky Almack was stranded at second base.

The second contest of the day for Grace was an elimination game against Campbellsville. Senior Tiffany Featherston scored Grace’s first two runs of the game, plating in the opening inning on an RBI single by Tiffany Featherston and in the third inning on an RBI double by Hannah Adams.

Grace moved ahead 3-0 in the sixth when Chelsea Whitesell scored on a drive from Brooke Shell.

Adams took care of the rest from the mound. The freshman hurler displayed a gutsy performance from the mound, limiting the Tigers (44-21) to four hits in a complete-game effort. Campbellsville managed to score a run off Adams in its final at-bats, but the Tigers could not muster anything else.

Featherston, Whitesell and Samantha Johnson notched two hits in the win.

Grace is enjoying a breakout season, securing its most wins in a season and first national tournament appearance since 1997 under head coach Heather Johnson.

Grace College to Partner with Eastern Union Christian College to Offer Higher Education Programs

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Grace College & Seminary has recently partnered with Eastern Union Christian College. This partnership will provide an online associate degree program in Biblical Studies for the Columbus community.

The program begins fall 2014 and will help those seeking to increase their knowledge of the scriptures while becoming better equipped to serve in ministry. Executive Director of Regional Initiatives Dr. John A. Teevan is excited that, “Students will get the Grace online experience – classes that emphasize a biblical worldview, strengthen character, sharpen competence, and prepare them for service.” A sampling of courses from the program include: Exploring the Bible, Introduction to Psychology, Consumer Economics, and Scripture & Interpretation.

“We are excited about the partnerships and relationships Grace College is developing in the Columbus, Ohio area,” said Celeste Allen, Grace College Columbus. “We look forward to the movement of the hand of God as Grace offers affordable online education to the Columbus community.”

“We at Eastern Union Christian College are excited about our new partnership with Grace College,” said Dr. Michael A. Noble, president of Eastern Union Christian College. “As we continue to prepare men and women for Christian service, we are confident that our relationship with Grace College will only serve to enhance our efforts and improve the community in which we live.  We rejoice in the spirit of cooperation between Eastern Union and Grace and are even more enthusiastic about the benefits that will be enjoyed by our community through this joint venture.”

Grace’s commuter locations are geared toward the traditional college student who wants a quality, affordable Christian education, but is looking to stay close to home.  Tuition is quoted at a flat-rate charge per semester, placing it significantly lower than most other Christian residential and private commuter colleges.

Grace has accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. Visit columbus.grace.edu for more information.

The Lady Lancers (28-28) erupted offensively in a 12-3 victory over Trinity Christian to open up the 2014 NCCAA World Series on Thursday, held at Botetourt Sports Complex.

The Trolls (26-26) got on the scoreboard first in the second inning, plating three runs on three hits. Freshman Brittany Melzoni got Grace’s offense rolling to lead off the bottom of the second, blasting a solo home run to center field. Tiffany Featherston and Clarissa Knight also drove in runs in the inning as Grace evened the score 3-3.

Grace blew the game wide open in the bottom of the fourth with a nine-run explosion. Olivia Winget, Grace’s all-time leader in hits and home runs, added another career highlight with a two-run home run in the inning. Brooke Shell and Knight notched two hits apiece in the fourth, and Paige Petrone had a two-out, two-run double.

Freshman duo Knight and Melzoni batted 3-for-3 in the win, and Knight drove in three runs. Petrone and Featherston were 2-for-2 as both players had two RBIs. Shell was 2-for-4 with two runs scored, and Samantha Johnson scored twice as well.

Alex Shipley and Hannah Adams combined for the pitching win on the mound.

The Lady Lancers advance in the NCCAA World Series bracket on Friday in the national quarterfinals. Grace’s game against either Shorter or Cedarville is tentatively slated for 4 p.m., dependent on field conditions.

The commencement ceremony at Grace College took place Saturday, May 10 at 9 a.m. in the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center. William J. Katip, president of Grace College and Seminary, lead the commencement ceremony. The ceremony included an invocation by Rev. Keith J.

Grace College & Seminary Honors Dr. William Male with Renaming of Seminary Building

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Grace College & Seminary was pleased to honor Dr. William Male at Saturday’s commencement ceremony for his numerous accomplishments as a faculty member and administrator at Grace, as well as for his recent, significant financial gift toward the purchase of the seminary building. In recognition, the building has now been renamed the William Male Center for Seminary and Graduate Studies.

In the thirty-four years he served Grace Schools, Dr. Male served twelve years as academic dean of the college, eleven years as dean of the seminary, and two years as the acting dean of the seminary’s west campus. He received a Ph.D. degree from Indiana University in 1968. In 1971, he founded the first of the annual institutes for Christian school administrators and teachers, for which Grace has become internationally known in the Christian school movement. After his retirement from his academic ministries at Grace, he served as a part-time planned giving officer for the school from 1989 through 1993.

During his years of service at Grace College and Seminary, Male also served as an interim pastor of a number of churches, including Grace Bible Church of Berne (which he helped establish), the Community Grace Brethren Church of Warsaw, the Grace Brethren Church of Fort Wayne, the Grace Brethren Church of Goshen, the Bethel Brethren Church of Berne, and the Milwood Chapel.

At the annual meeting of the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers in July, 2009, Dr. Male was honored with their “Lifetime Achievement” award.

“We are proud to name our seminary building after Dr. Male,” said Bill Katip, president of Grace College & Seminary. “We have greatly benefited from his work here at Grace as well as his generous giving over these many years.”

Grace College & Seminary to Hold Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 10

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

(MOCC) Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center at Grace College & Theological Seminary.

Grace College & Seminary’s 2014 Commencement will be held Saturday, May 10 at 9 a.m. at the Ronald and Barbara Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center on the Grace campus. The ceremony will include an invocation by Rev. Keith J. Treadway, senior pastor at Bible Baptist Church in Kokomo, Indiana; an institutional welcome by William J. Katip, president at Grace College and a benediction by Rev. C. James Brown, senior pastor at Grace Community Church in Goshen, Indiana. The Lancer Chorus, directed by Thomas Hall, will be performing at the commencement services.

It is a year of firsts for Grace College graduates. Over the past few years, Grace has been implementing new and innovative options to offer an affordable Christian education to more students. This year, Jacob Goodman will be the first graduate from the Grace/Trine Engineering partnership with a degree in applied physics and Caleb Sanders will be the first graduate of the 3+1 blended program with a master’s degree in business administration.  Also walking are first-time graduates from Grace’s new 3-year Reimagine program, the Medical Device Quality Management program, the Exercise Science program, and the Weber schools in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.

This year, Grace asked the senior class to select a faculty member to appear as a special guest speaker during the commencement ceremonies. The students selected Dr. Tiberius Rata, assistant dean of the school of ministry studies at Grace. He will be speaking on the topic of grace.

For the 2014 Commencement, Dr. Katip has chosen Dr. Paulette Sauders, the senior most faculty member, to carry the ceremonial mace. Carrying the mace is a great honor and is traditionally borne by someone who has been singled out for tribute. Dr. Sauders started teaching at Grace in 1965 and is respected greatly by students and faculty alike for her many years of dedication to the college.

During the ceremony, Grace will honor Dr. E. William Male, who served 34 years at Grace as a faculty member and in other key academic, advancement, and administrative roles. In recognition of Dr. Male’s ministry excellence and for the generous gift the Males haven given to the school, Grace’s board of trustees renamed the seminary and graduate counseling building (formerly GBIM/Encompass World Partners) the William Male Center for Seminary and Graduate Studies.

May 10 also marks the completion of the first year of presidency of Dr. William Katip, who stepped into leadership during last year’s commencement. Dr. Katip brings 39 years of higher education experience to the presidency and has been invaluable in guiding Grace Schools through many innovative changes since 2007.

Grace Clinches Berth to NCCAA World Series

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Pictured is Grace's softball team celebrating its 2014 NCCAA Midwest Region championship on Tuesday

Grace’s softball team capped off its best season in nearly two decades by securing a trip to the 2014 NCCAA World Series. Grace defeated Cedarville 9-5 to win the NCCAA Midwest Region championship on Tuesday. The Lady Lancers (27-28) will play in the NCCAA World Series for the first time since 1997. The national tournament is held in Roanoke, Va., beginning May 15.

Entering the regional tournament, Grace was given the No. 4 seed in the five-team field. The Lady Lancers won three straight games on Monday to earn a place in the finals. After losing 7-2 to Cedarville in the opening game on Tuesday, the automatic bid for the World Series came down to one final game between Grace and Cedarville. This time the Lady Lancers made good on their chance, claiming a 9-5 victory to punch the team’s ticket to Virginia.

“The first game we were really tight and played not to lose. We hit the ball but didn’t make things happen,” said head coach Heather Johnson. “My challenge to the girls in the second game was to play for each other, communicate and give it all for each other. That’s exactly what they did, and we played how we were capable of playing.”

The Yellow Jackets struck first in the championship game and maintained a 1-0 lead over the first two innings. Hannah Adams swung momentum back in Grace’s favor with a three-run home run in the third inning. Grace seized control of the game with a five-run fourth, highlighted by two RBIs from Clarissa Knight and a two-out RBI single from Alex Shipley. Shipley, Olivia Winget and Tiffany Featherston made critical defensive plays to keep the Yellow Jackets off the scoreboard until the final inning.

After Winget drove in Grace’s ninth run, Cedarville faced a 9-1 deficit in its final at-bats. The Yellow Jackets managed to score four runs, but Amanda Bowman finished the job from the mound. In the opening game against Cedarville, the Lady Lancers did not warm up their bats until the sixth inning. Grace cut a 4-0 deficit in half as Knight’s drive brought in Brooke Shell and Featherston to score during the sixth. But Cedarville ballooned its lead to 7-2 with three more tallies in the seventh inning, and Grace had no response.

“Reaching NCCAA Nationals was a goal we set at the beginning of the year. Making it to nationals feels like proof that we’ve been doing the right things as a program,” Johnson said. “Our first few years [at Grace] were hard, so you start to question things. But this year has been great in many ways, including seeing spiritual growth since the preseason. We feel like this is proof that if you do the right things off the field, you’ll see the results on the field.”
