San Diego Christian College to Add Softball Starting in 2013-2014


Mon., March 25, 2013

EL CAJON, Calif. - The San Diego Christian College Athletic Department has announced the addition of softball starting in 2013-2014. Softball will be the ninth athletic program offered by SDCC, and the first addition to the department since baseball was added in 2007.


“We are excited for the opportunity to bring in more female athletes to train in godliness,” said SDCC Athletic Director Chris Bando. “We have some outstanding coaching candidates committed to spiritually mentoring young women and assembling a competitive softball team.”


The Lady Hawks will compete in the Golden State Athletic Conference and will be the sixth athletic program to feature softball, joining Arizona Christian University, Biola University, Concordia University-Irvine, Hope International University, and Vanguard University.


“This is a great opportunity to add yet another competitive program to the already strong Golden State Athletic Conference,” added Bando. “The talent level for softball in Southern California is unmatched and recruiting top talent to compete in an elite conference is a top priority.” 


“We are looking forward to contributing to Christ-like competition in women’s athletics in the GSAC.”


The SDCC Athletic Department is currently in the process of an extensive search for a head coach. Applications are currently being accepted. In addition, SDCC is collecting information from any potential recruits who may be interested. 


SDCC currently competes in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, and volleyball.

Gentleman's Agreement

On Thursday night, March 21, 2013, fifteen students packed into the SDCC Movie Theater for a showing of "Gentleman's Agreement" - the 1947 Academy Award winning film about anti-Semitism.  Hosted by the History Department, the movie night sought to engage students with a different side of history - history through Hollywood. While movies don't always provide the most accurate portrayal of academic history subjects, this particular movie deserves credit for its portrayal of how Americans saw and experienced their relationships with Jews in the years following World War II.  Gregory Peck stars as the protagonist tasked with writing a series of articles on anti-Semitism.  Looking for a unique "angle" on the topic, Peck's character decides to "play a Jew" and the subsequent experiences he has painfully exemplify that anti-Semitism was alive in American society in the late 1940s.  The film won Best Picture and many students in attendance that night agreed it did rightfully so.  Many were also made aware of how far society has progressed in the past 60 years and how they experience clashes of race and culture in different ways today.  However, the night itself proved to be a valuable learning experience for students in both the specifics of post-WWII racism, and the larger constructs of race today.  Next month the History Department will host another movie night, showing "October Sky", a touching picture about the Cold War era in American history.
