Out of all of the many great achievements happening at Lubbock Christian University, it is the athletic events that draw the crowds and fill the evenings with school spirit. At this time of year, the campus gets excited for Lady Chap and Chap basketball games. The Honors College is particularly excited and extremely proud of both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. We know that a great athlete is not only well practiced at the game but is also a well-rounded individual, and so we are grateful to have the opportunity to support our Honors College athletes, such as Hannah Harbin, Olivia Robertson, Allison Szabo, Allea Harris, Zach Stepp, Brennen Fowler, and Zach Link.
Hannah Harbin, a senior in the Honors College, is currently one of the starters on the Lady Chaps’ basketball team. In the 16 games she has played, she has averaged 6.4 points per game. In addition, Hannah participates in rigorous classes through the Honors College as she completes a double major in chemistry and math. The Honors College is also home to Olivia Robertson, a sophomore starter who has played 16 games and averaged 6.7 points a game. We love cheering Olivia on as she works towards the net and a degree in criminal justice. Allison Szabo is another of our great female athletes. Allison is another senior in the Honors College, and as a starter in 16 games and an average of 9.4 points per game so far, the Honors College is excited to see where Allison is going and to assist her in any way we can as she works towards a degree in secondary education. Allea Harris, a senior in the Honors College, is another important asset to the Lady Chaps’ team. As a guard, Allea has played 15 games and averaged 1.8 points per game while balancing a difficult class schedule. The Honors College is proud of Allea as she works towards a degree in communications.
While the Honors College is extremely proud of our female athletes, we are just as proud of our male athletes. On the men’s basketball team, Zach Stepp and Brennen Fowler have greatly contribute to an excellent season so far. Zach Stepp, a freshman in the Honors College, plays forward for the basketball team while also taking on a challenging class load. We support Zach in any way we can, and we are excited to help him as he works towards a degree in biology. Along with Zach, the Honors College is proud of Brennen Fowler, a sophomore who is a starter for the men’s basketball team. Brennen has played in 16 games and averaged 12.7 points per game so far. Along with playing basketball, Brennen works closely with the Honors College as he works towards a degree in secondary education. Zach Link completes this triad of male athletes, and as a forward on the Chap basketball team, he is an important team player. Zach is a freshman in the Honors College who works diligently to balance basketball with his academics. The Honors College is proud to support Zach both on and off the court as he works towards a winning score and a degree in finance.
We are proud of the athletes in the Honors College and are rooting for them as they grow into great thinkers, great athletes, and most importantly, great people. With all of this talent, the Honors College is excited to watch the rest of the basketball season and cheer LCU on to victory. Go Chaps!
