  • Sept. 8, 2009 KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Despite a tie in its season opener, Bethel (Tenn.) University holds as the No. 1 team in the first regular season 2009 NAIA Men's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 Poll, the NAIA announced Tuesday. With a 2-0-1 overall record, Bethel totaled 19 out of the possible 22 first-place votes and 617 points. In the opener against Lee (Tenn.) on Aug. 25, the Wildcats and Flames played to a 0-0 tie after two overtimes. Since then, the Wildcats have swiped two wins by a combined score of 9-2. Bethel, the defending national champions, now holds a 17-match unbeaten streak dating back to Oct. 4, 2008.   With two first-place votes and 592 total points, No. 2 Concordia (Calif.) moved up three spots from the preseason poll (Aug. 18). The second spot is the highest for the Eagles since No. 2 on Aug. 19, 2008. Concordia took down then-No. 11 Hastings (Neb.), 2-0, at home on Sunday for one of its two early wins.   No. 3 Notre Dame (Ohio) has sprinted out to a 4-0 start to the year. The Falcons earned 581 points and jumped up four spots. Notre Dame has now been ranked in the top 10 in the last six polls. Through four matches, Notre Dame has out-scored its opponents by a 21-3 margin.   A team that is consistently among the top 5, No. 4 Lindsey Wilson (Ky.), tallied 573 total points and the other first-place nod. Lindsey Wilson, who has been ranked in the top 5 in 12 of the last 13 polls, has yet to allow a goal during its 2-0 start.   Moving up five spots to No. 5 is Azusa Pacific (Calif.). The Cougars own a 4-0 record and were awarded 531 total points in the Top 25 poll. Azusa Pacific owns a 14-3 combined scoring advantage including an impressive 2-1 win over then-No. 15 Simon Fraser (B.C.) on Aug. 27.   St. Xavier (Ill.) reaches the Top 25 for the first time since the preseason poll back on Aug. 17, 2004, at No. 24 - the Cougars are No. 12 this week with a 3-1-0 mark. Bethel (Ind.) has also snapped a long drought with a No. 17 ranking this week. The Pilots last were ranked back on Nov. 1, 2006, in the No. 20 slot.   Two teams that made a big fall out of the Top 25 since the Preseason poll is Mount Vernon Nazarene (Ohio) (No. 4) and Mobile (Ala.) (No. 7). Mount Vernon Nazarene is 3-2 on the year having lost its first two games. Mobile is 1-1 having lost to then-unranked Martin Methodist (Tenn.).   The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, independents and unaffiliated groups.

  •   Melissa Ann Allen of Paris was the first-ever Bethel University graduate on Sunday, Aug. 2 just one day after the school had officially become a university. Allen was among 120 graduates who received degrees during the historic first Bethel University commencement held in Bouldin Auditorium of the Dickey Fine Arts Building.      Allen had earned a bachelor of science.      Sam Suddarth, the moderator of the 179th General Assembly of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, was the commencement speaker.      “All I need to know about life I learned from Star Trek,” Suddarth said.      He asked the graduates, “What is your philosophy of life?”      “Everyone has one whether he or she knows it or not,” he said. “Star Trek’s Spock was a Vulcan. The Vulcan philosophy was I Lead, I See.      “You’ll find in life many things. You’ll see that not everyone’s as smart as you, but you’ll also see that everyone’s not as dumb as you are either.”      Suddarth encouraged the graduates to never stop learning.      “Keep an open mind,” he said. “Always tell the truth and have a reason for what you do. Vulcans don’t lie.”      Suddarth also encouraged graduates to temper their words with love.      “Seek out life in new civilizations – remember building relationships is the prime directive. When it comes to relationships cherish your friends and choose them well.”      According to Suddarth, the graduates would encounter “aliens.”      “You will encounter people who know their environment and you won’t,” he said “Also remember that suffering will happen. Suffering produces character and character produces hope.”      Suddarth closed by encouraging graduates to boldly go where no one has gone before.      “You’ve already done this by being the first-ever class of Bethel University,” he said. “As you embark on life’s journey, how will you make it? Each according to his gifts, live long and prosper.”                 Graduates who earned a Bachelor of Science were: Melissa Ann Allen, Paris; Crystal Tamekila Bailey, Dyersburg; Lewis David Bell, South Fulton; Jennifer Lynn Bishop, Median; Barbara Ann Blakely, Memphis; Lisa A.
