Inaugural Lippy awards filled with laughs and honors

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Instead of the lights coming up for game time at Allen Arena last week, they were dimmed and the spotlights turned on as the Lipscomb Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted the inaugural Lippy Awards.

Following a walk down the purple carpet for the paparazzi, the night honored the best achievements and moments of the year for Lipscomb Athletics.  Lipscomb senior TJ Ojehomon and women’s soccer assistant coach Chris Klotz co-hosted the gala event.  The duo kept the audience on the edge of their seats wondering what the pair might do next and at who’s expense the next laugh would come from.
