On Friday, February 6, 2015, St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary and her sister school St. Vladimir’s Seminary faced off once again for their annual basketball game. The evening began with a joint Vespers served in the Saint Nicholai of Zicha chapel located on the campus of St. Tikhon’s Seminary. After Vespers, Fr. Steven Voytovich, Dean of the seminary, thanked those from St. Vladimir’s for joining with us for the upcoming game and expressed his support for the players.
The game itself was held at the gymnasium of a local evangelical church in Honesdale, PA, just a few minutes away from St. Tikhon’s. Both teams gave it their all, but in the end St. Vladimir’s Seminary “narrowly” won out against St. Tikhon’s with a score of 42 to 30. After the game, everyone enjoyed pizza, soda, and fellowship. This annual game is geared toward fostering brotherly love between the seminarians, and among their families. We would like to thank all those who had a hand in making this game possible, especially Seminarian Andrew Nelko who handled all of the planning and organization for the event.
