Sterling College has announced its eight Homecoming King and Queen Candidates for the SC Homecoming weekend on October 16 – October 18, 2008.
Candidates are selected by fellow classmates and employees of the College. Candidates must have a least a 2.5 gpa, be in good standing with College and must be a senior or a junior who plans to graduate in the spring.
This year’s King Candidates include:
Sterling College will be presenting the Homecoming musical, Fiddler on the Roof, at 7:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, October 16-18, 2008, in Culbertson Auditorium on the SC campus. It is directed by Gordon Kling and choreographed by Diane DeFranco-Kling.
Sterling College will welcome alumni and friends to campus for the annual Homecoming festivities on Saturday, October 18. The Sterling community is invited to participate in the day’s events as well.
New this year is the first annual “Run with the Warriors” 5K run, which will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the McCreight Track. Those wishing to participate in this run can contact Jack Dillard at 620-278-4224.
Sterling College senior Ryan Covey has been named NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics), Men’s Soccer “Offensive Player of the Week” after his two stellar performances in Sterling’s victories last week.
Covey led Sterling to a 2-0 record last week, scoring six of his team’s ten goals last week and tallied two assists.
Sterling College will be dedicating its two newest residence halls on Saturday, October 18, at 11:30 a.m. during the Homecoming festivities. The halls, formally known as just X and Y, will be officially named “Douglas Men” and “Douglas Women,” together called “The Douglas Residences,” in honor of SC’s 10th President, Dr. Bruce Douglas, and his wife, Dee.
Seldom do football games go the way they predict on paper, but on Homecoming Saturday, the Warriors of the gridiron showed why they were the favorites going away over the rebuilding Moundbuilders of Southwestern College, victorious by a 42-14 margin.
Ironically, one year ago the Warriors used the aerial attack to best Southwestern putting up 42 points as well, but as the personnel changed, so did the Sterling attack as the offensive amassed a pummeling 316 yards on the ground on 55 carries on the day, QB Tyler Degenhardt leading the way gaining 144 yards on just 18 carries.
The days of dominace in the KCAC have drastically changed when the once perennially strong Swedes of Bethany suffer a lopsided shutout from the Warriors of Sterling College. Change is welcome as the Warriors continue a drive for postseason play defeating the Swedes 47-0.
Sterling College’s Debate and Forensics Team continues its success story with back-to-back wins this past weekend at the Coyote Thunder Debate Tournament, held at West Texas A&M. Competing against University of Texas El-Paso, Kansas Wesleyan, West Texas A&M, University of Oklahoma and other colleges, the team came in first in forensics and debate on both days of the tournament. Sterling’s debate team is undefeated this season.
