The Faculty win! After a disappointing regular season saw the coed faculty intramural softball squad go 0-3, they won when it counted.

Led by team captains Dave Williams and Tim Hawkins, the Faculty team entered tournament play as the four seed and pulled off an improbable upset of the top seeded team in the tournament. They then marched their way onto victory in the championship game by a score of 20-6.

Even though the Faculty squad had an average age nearing 40, they were able to limp their way through the regular season, dropping all three games by a total of four runs.

“We just had to get into the Big Dance and keep a positive frame of mind,” said left fielder Royce Bryan. “Once the tournament came, there was no looking back.”

The Intramural Coed Softball Championship concluded the 2011-12 intramural season. This year coed 7 v. 7 flag football, coed 3 v. 3 volleyball, coed 5 v. 5 basketball and coed softball were participated in by students and faculty alike.

“It was a good year of intramural sports. Next year I hope to build on the successes we have had this year with even more participation and more sports as well,” said Bryan.


This year’s celebrating classes will receive special recognition during alumni weekend, May 4-5-6. Plan to be here with them to help them celebrate. Below is the weekend schedule.

· 7 W, 7 L (not counting JUCO and JV games)

· 2 and 2 in conference play

· Finished 3rd at the national tournament (winning two out of three games at nationals)

· First year to have a chaplain – Sean Austin. We started this role to provide an opportunity for ministry and leadership development. Austin has been encouraging, serving, hard-working, and did a great job of helping us to stay focused on Christ.


Coaching Highlights

· Playing against my childhood soccer hero and improving against his team – Kevin Kewley, formerly of the Wichita Wings and Liverpool.

· Coaching with my life-long friend, Steve Davis, and with associate pastor and coach, Marc Compton.

Senior Spotlight – Eliot Hinshaw

What does it mean to be a leader? To set an example, to show the way to go, and to direct others. Besides leading in scoring and in assists, senior captain, Eliot Hinshaw, lead the team in receiving the most yellow cards. As most soccer fans know, receiving a yellow card is not always a bad thing. It typically means you are competing too aggressively and simply need a cautionary warning.

Eliot also led the team week in and week out by his work ethic. He was inducted to several all-conference teams throughout his career. This year’s honors include: team captain, MCC All Conference Second Team, ACCA Nationals All-Tournament Team, and ACCA All-American. Eliot finished his collegiate career with 34 career goals, 26 assists, a bunch of yellow cards, and many thrilling moments.

One hundred five guests attended the Barclay College Association Dinner on March 24. The college Association was started 1917 by the Friends Haviland Academy Board of Trustees to establish a Friends college. Since that time the Association has been the top legal entity of the college. The board established that anyone who donates $100 to the college during the fiscal year automatically
becomes a member of the Association. In recent years the college has provided a dinner to invite the member of the Association to campus for a special time of appreciation. During the dinner graduating seniors tell their stories of how they happened to attend the college, what the college has meant to them, and to thank the Association for its help in providing for their education.

Graduating seniors who spoke at the dinner were Jacob Newton, Friendswood, Texas; Eliot Hinshaw, Haviland, Kansas; and Caleb Heath, Fairland, Indiana. The Barclay Singers, a ladies quintet, and a guitar ensemble from the college provided dinner music.

Thanks to all who are members of the association and make it possible for people to attend Barclay and get a Bible centered education to live a Christian life of service and leadership.

The Barclay College Bears women’s volleyball team will not only be welcoming in new players for the 2012 season, but also a new head coach. Last year’s assistant coach, Shari Bryan, will be taking on the head coaching duties next season and will be assisted by former Barclay College volleyball player, Traci Ballard.

When asked about her goals as a first year head coach she said, “As I enter my first year as head coach, I plan to build upon what Justin Kendall has established and continue to bring the BC volleyball program to new levels. Last season we finished 6-6 in conference play, I intend for our team to be seeded higher in post-season play and competing for the conference championship. I am excited to help each individual player set goals for this season on a personal level as well as for the volleyball team. Walking through the process of accomplishing these goals with them is an awesome opportunity in which I am blessed to be a part of. Lord willing, together we will accomplish many things!”

Shari also commented on the girls she has returning, saying that she is looking forward to the leadership qualities they will bring as upper classmen and the experience that comes with their time playing at Barclay as well. As of now, “it looks like we will have three new players next season to join us. They will be a welcome help in the back row. I am anxious to meet them all and have they become Barclay Bears!”

All in all Coach Bryan is excited to start a new season with old and new faces on the court. “I am looking forward most of all to being a part of these ladies lives. If it were just about volleyball and the games we win, it would be a waste of time. I want to use volleyball as a way to help them grow spiritually. My prayer is that I will model Christ-like behavior on and off the court. Developing relationships and walking through the season together, I pray, will prepare them for life after volleyball and Barclay College. A life that is willing to follow Christ’s calling”.

 

Barclay College is life changing.  As a young man, a student, a teacher, and now as president, I have watched and experienced this transformation on more than one occasion.  Everything we do at this college is driven by our mission as well as our identity as an Evangelical Friends Christian institution.  We believe our ideas must be put into action, and this is why Barclay College makes a
difference in the world.  It is intellect inspired by faith to produce service.

This is nothing new for Barclay College.  For years we have developed students through our mission to inspire life, service, and leadership in an environment of rigorous academics and a spirit lead faith community.  Professors, students, and staff are partners in a personalized community bonded by the call of Christ to compassion, redemption, and service.

As we move into 2012 I am committed to pursue four pillars of vision.  These pillars – academic excellence, faculty growth, expanding graduate education, and a vital faith community – interface with our mission and will lay the foundation for living our witness in this world.

I am looking forward to this coming year and new opportunities to stir hearts and shape minds. Our Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership program will be offered in the fall in a fully online, asynchronous delivery model. Students will be able to access this program from anywhere around the globe with no residency requirements. Barclay College is truly going into the entire world.

Pray for Barclay College. We are servants of the King and your prayers and support are necessary for us to fulfill our calling. Thank you for being in the Barclay College family and for believing in what God is doing here. Let us commit ourselves to carry forward the faith that has been entrusted to us.
