The Royal Crusader basketball team wrapped up their 2013-14 home schedule last weekend with an exciting win over a very athletic GA NW Tech team from Rossville, GA.  Friday evening was Senior Night as we recognized our seniors and expressed our appreciation for their commitment to the Lord and our program for the past four years.

They joined more than 160 other young men who have had the opportunity to compete in college basketball while preparing for the Lord’s work and receiving an extraordinary Christian education.  As a Division II member of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), we invest much time and effort in providing a quality program that is not only competitive on the court, but emphasizes eternal priorities in the lives of our student-athletes.

Senior Night is always a time of reflection and thankfulness as we consider, not only what the Lord has allowed us to enjoy together, but also what lies ahead as these men take their place in the service of the King. The most rewarding part of the Crown College athletic program is not the team and individual accomplishments, but rather the reports of the Lord’s work that we enjoy from former student-athletes who are serving in churches across America and around the world.
