A Message from Hannah Munger

Earlier today All-American center Hannah Munger sent President Baker an update on the knee injury she suffered in last Saturday’s NCAA Div. III championship game, and a message for her fans.

President Baker,

First, I want to tell everyone in the Newberg and George Fox community how much your support and prayers have meant to my teammates and I this past season. We have been incredibly blessed to be a part of such a faithful and loving community. This support has been especially encouraging to me during the time of my injury from Saturday’s game. My doctor and the George Fox Athletic Training staff received the results from my MRI and have informed me that I tore my ACL and bruised a bone in my right knee. I am in the process of scheduling an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss what the next steps will be. There are many things I have to consider before making any future decisions so please continue to pray for me as I talk with my family, the coaching staff, my teammates, and the athletic training staff to make these decisions. Ultimately, these uncertainties will become clearer after I meet with my surgeon when I get back from spending time with my family in California for spring break. I will be sure to keep everyone informed as I begin to gather information and make my decisions. Again, thank you to everyone for offering up so much support. I feel truly blessed to be a part of such a community.

-Hannah Munger

Destination Australia

Junior Aaron Swor misses everything about his experience in Australia – even the commute

Alarm goes off, I snooze it. Alarm goes off, I snooze it. Alarm goes off, I look at the time and realize I only have two hours until my first class. Now, normally two hours is more than enough time to get ready for the day and get to class. However, when you are living in Sydney, Australia, and you have to take public transportation to school everyday, two hours is hardly enough.

“If you come to George Fox, who knows where it will take you.”

Junior Chris Lumsden got the chance to follow the George Fox women’s basketball team to the NCAA Div. III Sweet 16 in Fredericksburg, Va. But first there was a stop in front of the White House, followed by a Presidential traffic jam.

By Chris Lumsden

This has been a truly incredible trip. Getting to broadcast a Sweet 16 game in Virginia is one thing, but being able to go visit the White House? Epic. Shortly after recording this video yesterday, my friend Justin and I were leaving town until an SUV cop blocked the road right in front of us. We were so mad. Why is this guy blocking the road? Ten minutes after that, about 30 cops and a big black limo came rolling through the street. Any guesses? It was the President’s motorcade. First we visit his house, then we see him driving down the road. Truly unbelievable. It just goes to show how awesome my experience attending George Fox has been.

2012 Polar Bear Swim

Congratulations to those who survived this year’s plunge! The brave souls dived in on a cold February night at Camp Tilikum, about a twenty minute drive from campus. I’m glad I was behind the camera for this one; the lake water was close to freezing, enough to make even the bravest challenger think twice before jumping in. The few that finally took the leap of faith quickly found refuge at the campfire, complete with a hot chocolate and tea station. While I still don’t envy the participants, I’m looking forward to next year’s Polar Bear Plunge!
