Spring luncheon salutes spring sports participants

The Chillicothe Campus’ student-athletes and coaches were recognized during the recent spring sports luncheon at the Chillicothe Country Club.

Associate Dean James McKean applauded the participants for investing their time and effort to represent the campus on the courts and playing field. He also noted that OU-C’s athletics program is part of the campus’ emphasis on offering students a comprehensive educational experience that extends beyond the classrooms and labs.

“Participating on sports teams allows students to enjoy a challenging, competitive setting that provides a change of pace from the classroom and is part of a well-rounded college career,” McKean said. “Athletics serves part of the overall campus effort to prepare students for their careers and lives after graduation.”

“The qualities of time-management, maintaining poise in a pressure situation, teamwork and coming together for a common goal are assets that are especially found in athletic competition. These are attributes that will be important to you throughout your lives, particularly in your professional careers,” McKean said.

OU-C has a robust athletics program and fields women’s teams in volleyball, basketball, softball and tennis; and men’s teams in basketball, golf baseball and tennis. The Hilltoppers compete against teams of similar campuses in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference.
