Briscoe’s energetic vision of the future has guided Grace Athletics to unparelled success across the school’s varsity programs. His desire to pursue Christ-like excellence through the realm of athletics has led many of Grace’s teams to some of their best seasons ever. Under Briscoe’s guidance, student-athlete aid at Grace increased substantially. He has overseen multiple facility upgrades, including: a new lighted soccer stadium and press box, track and field stadium, strength and conditioning room, press box and scoreboard at Grace’s softball diamond, several new team rooms and a remodeled coaches’ office at the Gordon Recreation Center. Briscoe secured Grace College as the host for the NCCAA Division I National Championships for men’s and women’s basketball from 2012-2017.

\\\\\\\ GRACE LANCERS

2016-17 BASKETBALL ///////

2016-17 preview: bright future for young lancers Grace’s men’s basketball team will look different in nearly every way this winter under head coach Jim Kessler. After graduating five players, including four starters, nearly half of the Lancers’ roster (5 of 12) are freshmen. Kessler, entering the 40th season of his legendary coaching career, recognizes the dangers of a young squad. But he was also optimistic of the talent level. “I’m probably as unclear about this season as I’ve ever been at this stage, but I’m positive at the same time,” he said. “We are going to be young, but our rookies have the potential to be really good. It’s a totally different team.” Kessler believes the team’s shooting will be its primary strength this year. As a result, Grace will employ a faster attack than in previous years to create more shots. In preseason work, Kessler noted that Grace’s hot shooting has caused him to recalibrate every shooting drill to make it tougher. So far, “they’ve made or exceeded every contest,” he said. Leading Grace’s returners is Erik Bowen, who shot 55 percent from the floor last year and averaged 14.5 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. The rugged junior forward ended the year fourth in the nation with 17 double-doubles. Logan Godfrey also returns to the post after hitting 48 percent of his field goals as a freshman, and John Swanson shot 64 percent from the floor. At the guard position, Tre Olive and Chad Hoffer were steady scorers from the wing last year. Both players shot at least 36 percent on 3-pointers. Guards Stephen Halstead and Tim Swanson are two more deep scoring threats for the Lancers. Halstead set a program record last year by making 10 3-pointers in a single game. The Lancers’ newcomers will need to 8

contribute right away for Grace to realize its potential. Braxton Linville will be trusted at the point guard position after a stellar career at nearby NorthWood High School. Kessler lauded Linville’s competitiveness and ability to make plays at key moments. Jaret Sons, a 6-foot-7 forward from Rushville, also figures to play an important role. Sons boasts a true inside-outside skill set with the ability to shoot the 3-pointer at a high clip or score in the paint. He “thinks like a guard but looks like a forward” in Kessler’s words. Charlie Warner is another versatile, athletic wing who has potential to be a matchup problem for defenses. David Holden and Ian Kissell both enjoyed tremendous success in high school, and Martin Schiele will sit the year as a redshirt. “Our rookies all come from winning programs. They believe they can win, and they’re willing to do what is needed to get there,” Kessler said. One area where Grace will need to beef up is on the defensive end. In Kessler’s eyes, the team’s offense is far ahead of the team’s defense so far in preseason. Grace’s success in recent years has largely been from its ability on defense to make the opposition uncomfortable. The Lancers have been mainstays on the Crossroads League All-Defensive Team, including 2015-16 Defensive Player of the Year Brandon Vanderhegghen. Kessler maintained that for Grace to make noise at the national level, the Lancers will need to

be more dependent on their defense than their shooting touch. “My fear is that we will be at the mercy of our shooting percentage. To beat good teams, we’ll have to defend better than where we are at right now. Our shooting right now is good enough to win, so the jury is still out,” he said. Maneuvering through the Crossroads League is always a challenge, especially considering last year’s NAIA title game featured two league teams. But Kessler is hoping that Grace’s unity, along with the team’s mantra of “winning each day” will carry the Lancers through the ups and downs of a long basketball season. The Lancers have already demonstrated considerable camaraderie in the first weeks of practice. With a strong core of upperclassman leadership and an eager crop of rookies, Grace has high hopes for the future. “This could be a really fun team. The men want to be good as a collective unit,” Kessler said. “If a team can play together and play hard, they will be competitive in every game. At this point, we’ve done that. The goal is to get better and win each day.”

Head Coach Jim Kessler Grace College Men’s Basketball has been defined by one man over the last 39 seasons and that man is head coach Jim Kessler. “Coach K” begins his 40th season at the helm of the Lancers basketball program and is currently one of the most winningest active coaches in the nation with 743 victories. He was awarded with the highest honor from the NAIA in 2016 when he was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame. Kessler has led the Lancers to one of their most successful stretches in program history with a national tournament appearance in 10 consecutive seasons: five times at the NCCAA National Championships (2006-07, 2009-10, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16) and six times at the NAIA National Championships (200708, 2008-09, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2014-15). Overall, Grace has made nine appearances in the NAIA Nationals, including the 1992 squad who finished 32-5 and won the NAIA Div. II National Championship. In the past five seasons, Kessler has directed Grace to storied heights, including: the program’s first Crossroads League Tournament championship (2011-12), a memorable run to the NAIA national semifinals as an unranked team (2012-13), a charge to the national championship game of NCCAA Nationals (2013-14), a run to the “Sweet Sixteen” of NAIA Nationals (2014-15) and a third-place finish at NCCAA Nationals (2015-16). Kessler has enjoyed 18 20-win seasons and three 30-win seasons during his coaching career at Grace. He was inducted into Grace’s inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008. He has also been inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame (2016), NCCAA Hall of Fame (1994) and has been both the NAIA Coach of the Year (1992) and NCCAA Coach of the Year (1983, 1992). Recently, he was named the Crossroads League Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2015 and was the NCCAA Regional Coach of the Year in 2012. During the summer of 2013, Kessler was given the distinguished honor of representing Grace at the USA Basketball level. Kessler served as a court coach for USA Basketball’s 2013 World University Games’ Training Camp, helping select the final roster for the US team. He was also invited to host a coaches’ clinic at the 2015 NCAA Final Four. Kessler has led the Lancers on multiple international mission trips over the years, including trips to the Philippines, Jamaica, Bahamas, Egypt, Germany, France and Kenya. He has made extensive contributions on Grace’s campus by establishing campus projects that have raised funds for the college library and for other equipment and programs aimed at enhancing the quality of life at Grace. In the local community, Kessler has organized annual tournaments to benefit local organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and the Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund. For his contributions to the lives of youth in the Warsaw community, Kessler received the 2005 Pete Thorne Memorial Award. In 2006, he received the NABC Guardians of the Game National Award for Service. Kessler is a 1970 graduate of Grace College where he had a four-year playing career with the Lancer men’s basketball team. He is married to Susanne and the couple has four daughters -- Kim, Sarah, Jenny, and Janelle, four sons-inlaw, and 12 grandchildren. Kessler and his wife reside in Winona Lake, Ind.

2016-17 BASKETBALL ///////

2016-17 preview: lady lancers primed for bounce back Grace’s women’s basketball coach Scott Blum has a key theme for his team this year: “Run, run, run, run.” After an 8-22 season last winter, Blum’s Lady Lancers hope to find rejuvenation in 2016-17 thanks to a faster style of play and a deeper bench. After averaging under 60 points per game last year (59.9), Grace is changing its offensive mentality in what figures to be an exciting product on the hardwood. Blum said the team’s new mentality centers on wearing out their opponent. “We want to raise up our tempo to the next level. We want to get out and run, play fullcourt at both ends for all 40 minutes,” he said. As a result, Grace wants to attack more freely and get to the free throw line more often — two facets Blum said go “hand in hand” with an up-tempo offense. Offensively, Blum has slashed the playbook down to the bare essentials. His hope is that sets will lead to a more creative, freeflowing offense. “We want the ladies to read and react. We want them to create their own shot and create shots for their teammates.” A trio of veterans are primed for big offensive seasons for Grace. Haley Richardson is the team’s leading returning scorer at 9.5 points per game. The senior forward seemed to get more comfortable as last year progressed, even scoring in double figures for six straight games in January. Her “relentless energy level,” according to Blum, is key for Grace on the boards and at the defensive end. Kelsie Peterson has developed into one of the team’s strongest leaders on and off the court. Her offense (8.4 ppg, 37 3-pointers) and defense (team-high 37 steals) will be a cornerstone for the team. Darian Patton is the team’s vocal presence and playmaker. Her slash-and-kick ability resulted in 63 assists last year. Patton’s knack for facilitating the ball figures to be an important piece of Grace’s new offensive mindset. Blum is also stressing increased effi-

28

ciency from the Lady Lancers this year, initiating a new points system to track each player’s production throughout the year. Grace plans to turn the ball over less and rebound more to stress the little things that often win games. Although he is a self-described “offensive-minded coach,” Blum has decided to stress defense more than ever this preseason. The squad has spent “probably twice as much time on defensive drills than we have in the past,” Blum estimated. Grace peaked late in the year defensively, holding teams to 64 points or less in five of the last six games. Blum wants the squad to reach that level much sooner this year. “I’m excited for where we are defensively right now. Our defensive mentality is way ahead of where we were last year,” Blum said. “I’m excited to see how that pays off and how we’ll win games on the defensive end. If we can meet our goals defensively, we will win a lot of ball games.” Because Grace wants to outrun its opposition, the Lady Lancers will rely on a deep bench to maintain their stamina. Chloe Pridgen, Pam Miller and Hannah Adams are experienced forwards who possess unique abilities to score and defend. Added to the mix are freshmen Rachel Montgomery and Brooke Treadway. At the guard position, sophomores Brooke Sugg and Lauren Godfrey return as sharpshooting ballhandlers. Freshman Vironnica Drake also figures to play a significant role in the guard rotation thanks to her ability to create shots for others and put pressure on the other team’s de-

fense. Grace’s other guards, including senior Catherine Weaver and freshmen Bobbi Douglas, Broghan Gamble and Myriah Hoffman, give Blum a wealth of options on the wing. After struggling to a losing record last year, Blum wants Grace to regain confidence in their abilities. As evidence, he pointed to a late season win over Marian, a team that went on to win the NAIA National Championship. “I have a lot of confidence in what we can do on the floor. We have as much talent as any team in the country. We have the right players, we just need a consistent offensive and defensive effort,” he added. A necessity, Blum said, is to strive for what he called “perfect effort” at every practice and every game; to be relentless at both ends of the court and dedicate complete effort to each task. “From the first day until now, this has been the best preseason on the court that we’ve ever had. It’s exciting to see where we are. Our goal is to have perfect effort throughout the season and only aim to please the Lord through our play. If the ladies play for the Lord and are confident in themselves and in their teammates, the wins and losses will take care of themselves.”

Head Coach scott blum 13th-year head coach Scott Blum is poised to continue the Lady Lancers’ upward climb to regional and national success. Blum, the program’s all-time winningest coach, has revamped the women’s basketball team over his tenure. Prior to his arrival, the Lady Lancers averaged less than two league wins per year. But under Blum’s leadership, Grace have consistently hit double-digit wins in the ultra-competitive Crossroads League. The Lady Lancers are enjoying the best seasons in program history under Blum’s leadership. Playing in a loaded Crossroads League in 2013-14, Grace achieved their highest league finish (fourth) and best league record (12-6). Blum’s successful recruiting has caused major revisions to the team’s record books. Of the 10 alltime leading scorers in Grace’s history, five of the players were recruited by Blum including All-American guard Juaneice Jackson (1,893 points, No. 1 all-time) and All-American forward Allison Kauffman (1,784 points, No. 2 all-time; 945 rebounds, No. 2). In 2011-12 Blum’s Lady Lancers accomplished their first winning season since 1991-92, and they recorded their first 20-win season when they posted a 20-15 record. During much of the course of the 2011-12 campaign, Grace also appeared in the NAIA Division II Top 25 Coaches’ Poll -- another first for the Lady Lancers. In 2010-11, Blum led Grace to its first .500-season since 1992. As a result, he was named the NCCAA All-Region Coach of the Year in 2011. Blum has also led the Lady Lancers to seven straight appearances in the NCCAA National Championships, including a teambest third-place finish in 2012. Blum has a very special spot in the history of Grace Basketball as a player, as well. As a starting guard in the early 1990s, he was an NAIA All-American and NCCAA Player of the Year. He was also a major component in the men’s basketball team’s national championship in 1992 under Coach Jim Kessler. In high school, Blum scored 1,576 career points at Oregon-Davis and became the only player to have his number retired in school history. He then played two seasons at NCAA Div. I Valparaiso University before transferring to Grace for his final two seasons, where he led the Lancers to a 59-11 record. Blum graduated from Grace in 1993. While his playing pedigree is exemplary, Blum has also shown he knows how to work the sideline as well. In his first stint as an interim head coach at Indiana Wesleyan University in 1995, Blum led the men’s team to the NCCAA National Championship. He also spent four years as the men’s head coach at Trinity International in Chicago and at Lakewood Park Christian School in Auburn, Ind. He also spent two years as an assistant coach for Grace’s men’s basketball team. Blum and his wife Michelle have three boys: Tanner, Connor, and Asher. He is also a professor in the business department at Grace.

Grace College Cheer Team Head Coach jenna carter Grace’s cheerleading team will have a familiar face lead the team this year in Jenna Carter. Carter, a 2006 graduate of Grace, served as the Lancers’ cheer coach from 2009-12. She stepped aside from coaching Grace to focus on starting her family. “I have been blessed with the opportunity to lead the Grace College Cheer Team again,” Carter said. “I look forward to what God has in store for each of these young adults and the future of the program. I am excited for the upcoming season and working with the team to cheer on our Lancers!” Carter served on the Warsaw cheer coaching staff from 2006-08, including a stint as head coach. Her squads earned multiple awards and had a reputation for always being disciplined and structured. “We look forward to Jenna returning to lead our cheerleading program,” said Grace Athletic Director Chad Briscoe. “Her Christian commitment and passion to impact students’ lives through cheer will continue to build our program.”
