LEWISBURG, Pa. - Bucknell's Department of Athletics has announced its new "Bison Good Sports!" campaign, a sportsmanship awareness program designed to promote appropriate fan conduct at all Bison sporting events.
"It is Bucknell’s strong belief that every single person plays a role in good sporting conduct, and that includes the players, the coaches, the support staff, fans, the band, the students and visiting teams," said Bucknell director of athletics and recreation John Hardt. "Consistent with the ongoing discussions amongst all NCAA member institutions and conferences regarding sporting conduct, crowd control and comportment at our intercollegiate competitions, Bucknell will launch its 'Bison Good Sports!' sportsmanship campaign during the 2006-07 academic year."
“Bucknell aims to set a standard for excellence in academics and athletics, a standard reflected in such successes as our outstanding graduation rate among student-athletes and our 12 Patriot League Presidents’ Cup championships,” said Bucknell President Brian C. Mitchell.
