PINEVILLE, La. (WNTZ) – The Louisiana Christian University athletics program is in full swing with the quartet of football, volleyball, and both soccer teams all playing on the same week for the first time in 2023 as football and soccer play host while volleyball participates in a Labor Day Tournament.
