Lee's Gribler, Little Named NCCAA Student-Athletes Of The Week

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Lee University's Haley Gribler and Bernadette Little were named National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of Sept. 16, 2013.

Gribler, a freshman goalkeeper from Springboro, Ohio was instrumental in guiding the Lady Flames to a 1-0 victory over NCAA Division III rival Emory University last Friday.

Gribler recorded eight saves in the contest to preserve the shutout for Lee as she turned away an aggressive Eagles attack that registered 14 shots total in the contest.

The victory was the first in the 2013 campaign for the Lady Flames after dropping a pair of matches in California to begin the season.

Lee will now head back on the road to face their first Gulf South Conference opponent in North Alabama on Wednesday before testing Columbus State in Georgia on Sunday.

Little, a sophomore from Nova Scotia, Canada took home medalist honors at the Smokey Mountain Invitational last week topping Gulf South Conference foe Camila Sellivano from West Florida by two strokes. Little fired a 3-under 69 in the final round to go along with an opening round 73 to claim her first collegiate tournament victory.

"Bernadette played terrific today, and I couldn't be happier for her personally," said a pleased coach John Maupin. "She works so hard and has a great demeanor on the course. She put a lot of time in this summer, and it paid off big today. She earned this win. Against such a strong field she was going to have to play well, and she went out and made it happen. She joins a great group of previous Lady Flames medalists and I am excited for her."

Little helped guide the Lady Flames to a second-place finish in the tournament finishing four shots back of champion St. Leo. The Lee women's golf team will now set their sights to the Lander Lady Bearcat Invitational in Hilton Head, S.C. The 36-hole tournament begins Monday, Sept. 28.

Set Up A Council On Love, Not A Council On Hate

In Mayor Berke's April 19 version of the Berke Bulletin, he announced plans to establish a Council on Hate and indicated a focus on tolerance. I beg of him to reconsider that plan. One problem in Chattanooga and in other places in America is that there are some people who have already established an informal version of a Council on Hate. I suggest that a more productive plan ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Always Know The Facts

I adore the fact so many of America’s high school and college students are very active in our battle against violence in our schools but bemoan the fact that when you combine youth and ‘lack of experience’ they often are misguided and ill-informed. The best example came on Saturday when a reporter for Campus Reform walked around the Cal State-Santa Barbara campus asking the students ... (click for more)
