Fall 2013 was a booming season for OKWU athletics. With a National NAIA Elite 8 appearance, individual NAIA qualifiers, and introduction of a new women’s sport, the Eagles brought glory to God on the court, the field, and the green.
The men’s and women’s CROSS COUNTRY teams both finished third at the MCAC Cross Country Championships. Senior Allie Antrim, a four year qualifier, and Freshman Sarah Sharp both qualified for the NAIA National Championships.
“What you have just seen is the difference between those who voted on the basis of religion versus those who voted on the basis of science.” Ron Reagan, 2004
It was ten years ago: Presidential election night, 2004. Ron Reagan, the left-leaning son of the former president, was serving as a political commentator for CNN. As the polling booths closed and the nation’s votes were being counted, a major newsflash was developing. It was the story of the “values voters”—the millions of people who said in the exit polls that morality, social standards, and, yes, even religion had been a determining factor in their respective votes. It was a story about “red states” vs. “blue states.” In Ron Reagan’s opinion, it was a story about science vs. religion.
