Lincoln Christian University
will host its annual Hall of Fame inductions and men's alumni
basketball game on Saturday at the Laughlin Center. Everyone is
invited to this free public event.
The day's events will open with the men's alumni game at 10 a.m. LCU
alumni will have the opportunity to showcase their finesse against
athletes from varying generations of the Preachers and now the Red
Lions basketball squad. Notable Red Lions alumni participating
include Brady Cremeens, all-time LCU 3-point record holder, and
current athletic director and men's basketball head coach Mac
Ingmire, fourth in all-time assists and second in steals.
Following the alumni game, the Red Lions will take on the Kuyper
College Cougars, with the women's game beginning at 1 p.m. and the
men's game at 3 p.m.
The Hall of Fame ceremony will commence after the women's game,
at approximately 2:45 p.m. This year's inductees are baseball
notables Tim Knight (1980-1984) and David Lingle (1985-1986). Both
men were starters for their baseball squads.
During his career, Knight had a .402 batting average, with an
on-base percentage of .485 and an average of 1.13 hits per game.
Lingle had a career batting average of .470, an on-base percentage
of .518, 36 single-season hits, 30 single-season runs and six
single-season home runs.
Guests are invited to cheer the Red Lions on, congratulate the
inductees or just brag about the old days.
Any alumni men still interested in competing should contact Mac
Ingmire at 217-732-3168, ext. 2224, to check status of team
