Baseball Signs Top Local Pitcher

     The Evangel Baseball program is proud to announce the signing of one of the top pitchers in the Springfield area.  Dustin Sipes of Nixa High School has signed a "Letter of Intent" to continue his baseball career at Evangel University starting in the fall of 2015.  We have had our eye on Dustin since his sophomore year and we are extremely happy to have him in our program.  He will not only help us greatly on the field, but he is also a solid student and great person off the field.  Congratulations Dustin...we are excited you have chosen to become a Crusader.

Fall Semester Comes to Close

     Finals are over and the semester has come to an end.  The fall has definitely been a time of hard work and getting to know each other.  After graduating a large senior class in 2014, there are a lot of new faces in the program.  I am pleased with how our team has meshed together this fall and we are well on our way to producing a positive team chemistry.  We are looking forward to a great season in 2015.
     Before we close out the semester there was something I forgot to post at the end of November.  The annual No-Shave-November Awards were handed out and we had "winners" in two categories.  The first category was "Worst Attempt".  That worst was earned by Jacob Gettle.  He received razors and a can of Barbasol.  The prize for "Best Beard" was won by Ryan Bradshaw.  He received a Si Robertson action figure.  Below is a picture of them with their awards.  Congratulations Jacob and Ryan!

EU Softball

As we finish up semester and off-season workouts, we look forward to January and our preseason workouts for the 2015 season. We had productive practices the previous few weeks of December & November. The team had good energy and focus and on target ready to play fro 2015. We also had to make a change to the opening weekend of the season for February 6-7. We will not be attending or going to Louisiana tournament due to budget constraints and trying to reschedule or refill those dates that works better for the university budget. We hope to have it filled soon and will report the replacement location and opponent when filled. All for now and have a happy holiday season!
