Hannibal, MO – On Tuesday, April 26, HLGU Athletics hosted an indoor sports event for the Mississippi Valley State School in the Mabee Sports Complex.  Approximately 25 students from MVSS participated in several activities involving balls, scooters, mats to play on, and many other activities. HLGU athletes representing all 15 varsity sports participated, totaling approximately 70 student-athletes.  

“This has become an annual event that we plan to continue,” said Jason Nichols, HLGU Athletic Director.  “It represents well our NAIA Champions of Character initiative of instilling ‘servant leadership’ in our athletes, not to mention our motto as a university of ‘knowledge for service.’”
