VU champs to be honored

The Vanguard men's basketball team that won the NAIA national championship this season will be honored by the Orange County Board of Supervisors at a hosted reception on April 29 at 8:45 a.m. at the Hall of Administration in Santa Ana.

An award presentation will immediately follow at 9:30.

Supervisor John M.W. Moorlach, and the County of Orange will honor the Vanguard University athletes with a congratulatory proclamation for their record-breaking season.

In the program's 64-season history, the 2013-14 Lions are the first to earn a Golden State Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament crown in the same season. This year's team also set a school record for wins by finishing 32-6.

Moorlach, the Second District Supervisor, represents Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Stanton, and a portion of Buena Park and Fountain Valley.

The event is open to the public.
