The NCCAA Division 2 National Tournament was held last week with Grace’s Midwest Regional rival Maranatha Baptist earning the National Championship Trophy. Grace Head Coach Rich Renzema was in attendance for the basketball activities in Circleville, Ohio and saw a large dose of the 2013-2014 opponents his Lady Tigers will be facing.
The Lady Tigers will be playing against the reigning champions from Maranatha on the road in February and will face runner-up Manhattan Christian on the road in November. To add to the schedule, Grace will face the winner of the previous six championships, Kentucky Christian, in two different tournaments, one at home and one in Grayson, Kentucky. Throw in a game against Ohio Christian, who finished fifth in this year’s tournament, and you have yourself a very challenging schedule and one that will put the Lady Tigers to the test early and often.
