CIRCLEVILLE, OH - Amongst their friends, family, and teammates, the OCU women's basketball team was prayed for and commissioned on Thursday night, just hours before flying out of Columbus to their final destination in the Dominican Republic. The team is partnering with Score International in what is sure to be a life changing experience for all involved.
The team is set to arrive in the Dominican Republic at 2:35 PM on Friday and will begin serving on Saturday morning.
