Horizon Christian School is revamping 3 programs this Spring. Softball, Baseball, and Track and Field. Softball was slated to play last year, but was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Baseball and Track and Field have not made an appearance for Horizon since 2015.
God has blessed Horizon with amazing coaches who are volunteering their time to see these programs build a solid foundation that will help them become the best versions of themselves.
Tiffany Featherson is a former Grace College Softball player who is ranked #10 in the schools history for hits in a career. She brings an enthusiasm and youthfulness that really resonates with the girls. In addition to being a strong leader for Christ, she is also in her first year teaching art for the school and is excited to continue what has been a historically strong program for Horizon.
Softball opens their season on April 10th with a Double Header, at home, against Calumet Christian.
Mike Lymberopoulos is a former Indiana Wesleyan pitcher who has played the game of baseball since he was 5 years old. He has played in a number of Men’s semi-professional leagues including some time in St. Louis. He is now enrolled at Calvary Chapel Bible College and is ecstatic to be reigniting the baseball program at Horizon. He brings a strong, yet nurturing presence to the field and is excited to build leaders for Christ who can also throw the ball around the yard.
Baseball opens their season against Tindley Accelerated Academy on April 8th.
Kristen McGaughey is a former Indiana Wesleyan Cross Country/Track and Field runner.
