    Lipscomb baseball documentary wins prestigious Murrow Award

    The eighteen minute and thirty-seven second video documentary captured more than just the story of the iconic Nashville Sounds’ scoreboard — it captured the cherished memories of players, coaches, and the people of Nashville. The Grand Ole Guitar is more than just any old scoreboard. As interviewee and former Sounds pitcher R.A. Dickey said in the video, “in my mind it’s the Nashville landmark. If I could put in my backyard, I would try, that’s how much I think it means to this city.” The Lipscomb University School of Communication team poured hundreds of hours into the video documentary project. The proposal for the video had been selected through a…

    Lipscomb soccer: A championship dream realized

    Months ago, before the Lipscomb men’s soccer team played in the ASUN conference championship final, senior forward Jelldrik Dallmann of Kuhstedt, Germany, mentioned that his dream was to win a championship ring – and had been since he’d come to the United States. (See the pre-final article for more from this interview.) The Bisons then went on to do just that – win the final game and take the title of ASUN champions, and win their rings. Dallmann also went on to be named the ASUN Player of the Year for the 2022 season. Once the championship rings made their way to Lipscomb’s campus, the team held a championship ring…

    Three amazing adventure books for you to delve into

    Republished from Barkley’s Book Recs, March 9, 2023. Adventure — fast-paced action, challenges, quests, battles and heroes. Quite literally… adventures.  I love adventure novels because they keep you invested the entire way with well-crafted stories and great characters. Plus, it’s hard to leave mid-adventure because you want to learn how it ends. Adventure novels can fall into or overlap several other genres, so some of these could also be considered “members” of other genres. But I’ll be highlighting them here. Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo I know I’ve already raved about Leigh Bardugo (see my fantasy books post where I talked about her trilogy Shadow and Bone), but I guess here…

    Lipscomb by the numbers: the bookstore

    Though there may be less Lipscomb by the numbers throughout the summer, as students are off campus and the numbers are therefore inherently less, there will still be a few here and there. This week takes us down to the basement of the Student Center, to our beloved bookstore. The Lipscomb campus bookstore offers everything from school spirit tee shirts and hoodies to notebooks and AirPods. Rachel Measell, the campus store manager, has helped provide some numbers from the bookstore. There are, naturally, a lot of numbers involved with the bookstore. This week will cover a lot of spring semester numbers. Those numbers may turn out to be higher than…

    Lipscomb track and field takes on Music City Challenge at Vanderbilt – a photo gallery

    This past weekend, the Lipscomb track and field team headed to Vanderbilt to take part in their Music City Challenge. The team not only broke three program records, but they took three victories in the individual events, and had a total of 21 top-5 finishes. It’s safe to say that it was a very good weekend for the team. Herd Media was at the meet, and Herd Media photographer Stephen Scarboro took photos of many of the events. Next, the team looks to the take on the outdoor track and field ASUN championship in Jacksonville, FL, from May 11-13th. For a recap of the meet, check out Lipscomb Athletics.

    Three incredible classics for you to give a look

    Republished from Barkley’s Book Recs, March 3, 2023. What crosses your mind when someone says the word “classics”? For me, it’s books like Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane Eyre and Moby Dick. The classics are the books you hear about all the time, that you probably read in school at least once and that your parents or grandparents probably have on their bookshelf or somewhere in their house. They’re classics for a reason, though. They have stood the test of time, and they are ridiculously good. It’s hard for me to pick my top three books or series every post, but picking my top three classics was especially so. I…

    Behind the curtain with Hello Darling

    You never know what might come out of Lipscomb’s music ensemble classes. The band Hello Darling just happens to be one of those things. The band was born when a group of five musically talented people wound up thrown together in an ensemble freshmen year and discovered they all shared a passion for good music. That sounds like the start of any band, perhaps, but Hello Darling is being called “unique.” Herd Media spoke with the two lead singers to find out why. The band is made up of juniors Patrick Armould and Grace Russell, who share lead vocals, junior Amber Sawyer on bass, senior Riley O’Donnell on drums and…
