Bisons’ Trace Willhoite earns national recognition for 2023 after strong season in 2022
Hitting a baseball is a refined skill. It’s a skill that takes a mix of power, awareness, hand-eye coordination, and plate vision. For some, all of these attributes mix perfectly and with enough dedication and hard work can mold into a skill that can subsequently mold into a potential career. This is no different at the collegiate level, and there aren’t many better examples than Lipscomb’s Trace Willhoite. Willhoite, a sophomore third-baseman from Georgetown, Kentucky, was recently named to the watchlist for the 2023 Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award. Introduced in 2017, the award is presented to a Division I player that exemplifies high-quality performance [specifically hitting], academic performance, and…

Ken Dugan Field and Draper Diamond Field are ready
Colby Ralls is one of the groundskeepers at Lipscomb in charge of taking care of Ken Dugan Field, Draper Diamond and the Lipscomb Soccer Complex. He has been working full time at Lipscomb since 2017. Before that he did some game-day prep for baseball in previous seasons. A normal day as Ralls puts it, "everyday is a new day out here, it always depends on what field is being played on that week and what time of year it is." He continues with "On a game day we are focusing on mowing it and getting whatever preparations are required, as far as dirt work, grass work. Non-game days prepping the…
Three Big Ten teams to watch out for in March
Republished from The 5 Banner Blog, March 9, 2023. The Hoosiers are well on their way to March Madness for only the second time since the 2015-2016 season. The reason they are the number one threat out of the Big Ten is because of their three major wins on the season and they firepower they have on their roster. Players to watch: Projected first-round-picks Jalen Hood-Schifino and Trayce Jackson-Davis. Jackson-Davis is a first-team All-Big Ten selection and Hood-Schifino won Big Ten Freshman of the Year. There aren’t many Big Ten teams that have two projected first round picks on their team and that is what separates the Hoosiers. The resume: Indiana’s best five wins are:…
The Bisons vs. Volunteers, a rivalry!
On March 14th the Bisons travel to Knoxville for their date with the currently third ranked, Tennessee Volunteers. This will be the 15th time the Bisons and Vols face off.

A Lopsided History The first-ever matchup between the Bisons and the Vols took place in 1979 at Nashville where the Bisons fell to the Vols 5-3. Three…
A look back at the special 2022-2023 Lipscomb Women’s Basketball Team
Devastatingly, the Lipscomb women’s basketball team fell to Liberty 84-56 last Wednesday in the ASUN semifinals, officially concluding their season. Although it was a loss by a wide margin, the result is not how we should remember this team. The way we should is a team that reached the 20-win threshold and went high above expectations. As we reflect on this special Lipscomb team, let’s examine this past season and three things to prepare for next year. Looking back at early November, no one had much faith in the Bisons. They had finished the past season with a 10-20 record while losing three starters: Jordan Peete, Maddie Cook, and Casey…

A final look at the 2022-23 Lipscomb men’s basketball team
The Lipscomb Bisons’ season concluded this past Thursday in the ASUN semifinal as they fell to Kennesaw State in an emotional, hard-fought battle in Kennesaw, Georgia. The team never lost sight of their goal even at some of the most challenging junctures of the game. This hard-nosed mentality was evident all year, even more so considering how far they had come. Before we bid farewell to this team, let’s reflect on this year’s season and consider three things for next year. Flashback to November when hardly anyone believed in this Bisons squad. They were picked to finish sixth in the ASUN Coach’s Preseason poll and eighth in the media poll.…

Lipscomb falls to FGCU in regular-season finale
A close game between the Lady Bisons and Florida Gulf Coast Wednesday night turned into the biggest Lipscomb loss of the women’s season. The Eagles won 101-59 in both teams’ final regular-season game. This was not how anyone expected the Lady Bisons’ final game of the season to go. FGCU (29-3, 17-1 in the ASUN) is No. 24 in the nation and enter the postseason first in the ASUN. The Lady Bisons (19-11, 13-5) are seeded third in the conference and have a first-round bye in the ASUN championship. The Lady Bisons led the Eagles 25-20 by the end of the first quarter, but the Eagles would rally back tremendously…
