WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Grace College and Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe welcomed student-athletes from the high schools of the Three Rivers Conference for a Champions of Character & Sportsmanship Summit on Tuesday.
Student-athletes from the TRC schools attended the conference, which was designed to educate student-athletes about sportsmanship and character training in athletics.
"We are pleased to be a part of building character at the high-school level through the Sportsmanship Summit," Briscoe said. "We hope it served as a great opportunity to educate and reinforce character education and to help promote the importance of sportsmanship for each student-athlete."
Students from TRC high schools spent the day together working in groups to discuss and challenge one another in sportsmanship and character-building opportunities in the athletic realm. The students worked in team-initiative opportunities to build camaraderie among the schools in the conference.
The Sportsmanship Summit featured sessions from Lake City Radio Sports Director Roger Grossman, Grace women’s soccer coach Michael Voss and Briscoe. Student-athletes also took turns sitting on a panel and answering questions in a peer-to-peer teaching environment.
