Spring Semester Snow

Second semester is in full swing, so I am sure that everyone should be adjusted to their new schedule. The crazy weather has interrupted everyone's agenda a bit, so keep an eye out for makeup work for your classes and rescheduled games for any sports that may have been cancelled last week. Also be sure to apply for graduation ASAP! Go Tigers! - Ally

Champion Accreditation

Champion staff and faculty is in the process of reapplying for accreditation for the next decade of Champions students. Dr. Portugal is ecstatic about the potential opportunities this opens up for Champion and asks that you pray for staff as they take on this huge task.


Last weekend Champion's men's team took to Dallas for 2 games. The first matchup was against Arlington Baptist. Somewhat of a rival for Champion, and with the Tigers winning the home matchup, Arlington was ready to go. After a 2 point half time deficit, playing without Xavier Hall, Josh Walpole, and Kyle Young proved to be too much of a task for the Tigers. Champion would fall 87-72, the lowest point total all year for the Tigers. AJ Williams scored 15 with 9 assists and 9 rebounds. Braylon Hawkins and Jason Garcia both scored 12, shooting 5/10 and 5/11,respectfully.To start the game, it looked like a repeat of the Arlington game. Champion was scoring, but struggling to get stops, and Dallas took full advantage in the first half. Falling down by as many as 18, the Tigers would go into half down 54-44. After, Champion came back, feeding off the energy of the crowd and the bench. After a 12-4 run in the first 5minutes of the second half, Champion was only down 2 After some clutch late game calls by coach Mo Capaci, Champion would end up pulling out the win, 97-93. -Coach Brendan
