Pursuing Hope After Career-Ending Injuries

Missouri Baptist University lacrosse goalkeeper Alexis Womble has been forced to support her team from the sidelines as too many concussions and other various injuries have led her doctors to recommend she no longer play the sport she loves most. And the MBU senior is exhibiting mature Christian faith in how she deals with the setback.

Alexis Womble keeps a contagious smile on her face even though she is no longer able to protect the goal she has been used to guarding as a lacrosse player for several years, as she has learned to “let go and let God.”

From Never Playing the Game, to Varsity Volleyball

Missouri Baptist University volleyball player Mason Crabtree came to MBU from a town too small to have a high school volleyball team, so he never played in high school, except working out with the girls team, but now he has managed to make the nationally ranked volleyball team at MBU.

Mason Crabtree played basketball and ran track in high school, but he always loved volleyball, even though his hometown of just over 100 people did not offer the sport at his high school. But through determination and sheer athletic ability, he caught the eyes of coaches at MBU, and the rest is history.
