Director of Athletics Craig McPhail Monday.
All area youth groups are invited to attend, and all who bring a
church bulletin will receive free admission to the games. The
women’s game is scheduled to tip off at 5:30 p.m., followed
by the men’s game at 7:30 p.m. Shortly after the conclusion
of the men’s game, Lees-McRae will host its weekly Worship on

Ministries offers service trips, small group Bible studies
throughout the campus, and various on and off campus projects.
The Bobcats will also honor two-time national champion cyclist
