Yellow Jackets fall short in tough battle, drop match 3-2
By Julia Swain
As the ball hit the floor with a resounding thud, a collective groan rang through the gymnasium, with the visiting Ohio Dominican Wildcats storming the court following a tightly contested 3-2 win.
Despite this, the Cedarville Yellow Jackets walked off the court with determination as a result of the gutsy performance that was put on, falling just short of the victory.
The Yellow Jackets dropped the first set 25-14. Head coach Greg Smith found this to be one ...
Brads Breakdown: Longhorns, and Sooners and Jayhawks, oh my!

What do birthday parties and September have in common?
Once they’re over the cupcakes are gone.
Technically this Saturday falls on September 30th, but the leaves are turning orange and my neighbors have pumpkin decor on their front door, so I feel justified considering this Saturday to be the 0th of October.
That’s right, conference season hits its stride in week five and we get watchable games in bunches every weekend. No more powerhouses facing Midwestern ...
Brads Breakdown: Buckle your seatbelts and start your engines
By Alan Brads
I like to open with a clever anecdote, something to draw you in, but I’ll resist the urge this week, not because I don’t want to, but because I have to embrace some degree of realism.
Nothing, absolutely no introduction I could give, could possibly be even 10% as interesting as the college football matchups going down this weekend. So why even try? Let’s talk football.
Without further ado, three storylines and five, (that’s right, I couldn’t settle for just ...
Lady Jackets bounce back with second half flurry
By Carolina Zimbron
The Cedarville women’s soccer team shook the crowd with a victory with a second-half scoring avalanche against Lake Erie on Wednesday night.
The Lady Jackets have played Lake Erie eight times and have won every match. This game was definitely no exception.
Despite the loss they faced last weekend at Northwood, Cedarville managed to deliver a winning score of 4-0 to move to 2-1 in conference matches and 5-2 overall.
Despite scoring multiple times during the ...
Brads’ Breakdown: the Calm Before the Storm

Have you ever had a theory that you don’t say out loud because it seems glaringly obvious but no one else seems to have thought of it? It makes you wonder if you’re a genius, going insane, or both. Well here’s mine:
I think it’s possible that the number one reason the NFL is overwhelmingly more popular than college football is not marketing, or parity, or format or even quality of play, it’s that Sunday comes after Saturday.
By the end of Saturday I love ...
Photo Gallery: Cedarville Draws Findlay at Home in Conference Opener
The Cedarville men’s soccer team played the Findlay Oilers, and dueled them to a scoreless draw in their conference opener, moving their record to 3-1-1 on the year.
Despite facing fifteen shots, goalkeeper Jabari Gray earned his fourth clean sheet of the year, and has so far effectively filled the shoes of former standout goalkeeper Jared Zacharias.
Findlay had heavy control of possession, but the Yellow Jacket defense fended them off for 90 minutes to escape with a draw.

Brads’ Breakdown: Pac-12 Supremacy and Southeast Showdowns

I hate spiders.
People say they support healthy ecosystems and help eliminate pests, I say who cares? They’re gross, I hate them and I’m sticking to that. But when I recently saw a spider web in my apartment bathroom I chuckled because it, like most things, reminded me of football.
The beauty of the college football playoff system is that the 14-week schedule is now a tangled web. A week 1 game on a Sunday night tugs at the strands connecting 20 other teams’ ...
CU men’s basketball team experiences biblical history in the Holy Land
By: Esther Fultz
Most students come to Cedarville with at least a basic knowledge of the Old Testament. We know the stories of David, Samuel, and Solomon like the back of our hand – sometimes so well it’s easy to forget that these are real events that happened in real places. Physically traveling to these real places can provide a new perspective for believers and help them grasp the truth of the events that occurred there.
This summer, Cedarville’s men’s basketball team traveled ...
Brads’ Breakdown: zooming into college football’s opening weekend
By: Alan Brads
On Tuesday morning, I stepped outside and was met by the crispest cool breeze that southwest Ohio has felt this year. I smiled, not because the breeze felt good, or the air smelled fresh, but because I knew what that feeling perennially means in my life.
College football is back.
No more conference realignment chatter, NIL debates or transfer portal mayhem, just 14 straight glorious weeks of football for our viewing pleasure.
Yes, I know what all you USC and Notre ...
