Four years ago I lost my best friend and hundreds of others did likewise with the passing of John Tripp. I started to write a blog about John this morning, but I kept deleting what I was writing. I finally decided that what I wrote last year still fits today so if what you read next sounds familiar, it is. I wrote it from my heart a year ago and the words still say everything I want to say today so here it is.
With the college basketball season winding down with the NCAA tournament it is time to reflect on what just happened in Canton, Missouri this past basketball season. For the first time since 1959, The Culver-Stockton men's basketball team made it to the N.A.I.A. National Tournament.
Don't look now, but Culver-Stockton College is back in the top 25 listing for the NAIA Division 1 National Basketball Poll this week. Culver cracked the top 25 earlier this year but a 3 game losing streak dropped them out of the top 25 for a while. A recent 6 game winning streak catapulted them back into the poll this week at number 23, tied with Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma.
Anytime you get a win it is good in athletics. That's why you play the game. Well, Culver-Stockton College (aka."Harvard on the Hill") picked up two wins last week without even playing. It's not the way you want to win, but the Wildcats will take it.
A few weeks ago we asked the question, "which local high school has the coolest mascot?" The response to our poll was overwhelming, so we thought it might be fun to take the same question and apply it to local and regional colleges.
Schools are open and colleges are back in session and the talk about the cost of education starts again. Let's face it, sending your kid to Illinois, Missouri, or Iowa is going to cost you a good chunk of change.
Culver-Stockton College Athletics Director Greg McVey, along with Culver-Stockton President Richard Valentine and Old Hat Creative representative Kristopher Bazen, introduced a brand new logo for the school (see attached logo)
