Bucknell Bison Athletics Setting the Standard of Excellence

Bucknell takes great pride in its commitment to excellence on and off the playing fields. From Presidents’ Cups to Academic All-Americans to graduation rates that are ranked annually in the national top-10, Bucknell is clearly at the head of the class when it comes to upholding the scholar-athlete ideal. •

According to federal data released by the NCAA each fall, Bucknell’s student-athlete graduation rate annually ranks in the top 10 among all Division I institutions. Bucknell has led the nation in graduation rates twice in the last 10 years, and it ranked No. 2 in the 2008 study. In the most recent survey in the fall of 2009, Bucknell ranked No. 8 in the nation.

Bucknell has claimed a league-high 118 Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year since the league’s inception as an all-sports conference in 1990-91.

A total of 366 Bison appeared on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in 2008-09 after recording a GPA of 3.2 or better during their sport’s competition season. Among all BU student-athletes, 255 made the Dean’s List with GPAs of 3.5 or better in the spring of 2009.

In addition to the 118 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-Americans produced since 1970, Bucknell has also claimed 293 Academic All-District honorees over the same span, including a school-record 22 in 2008-09 and 17 more in 2009-10.

With a school-record-tying eight Patriot League championships in 200910, Bucknell has now earned 81 crowns in 20 years in the league. In addition, Bucknell has had 109 conference players of the year, 89 PL coaches of the year and a whopping 491 individual league champions from sports such as cross country, track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and golf.

25 of Bucknell’s 27 varsity squads posted team GPAs of 3.0 or better in the spring of 2010.

Bucknell has captured the Patriot League Presidents’ Cup, signifying the league’s all-sports champion, 16 times in the 20-year history of the affiliation, including 12 of the last 13 years. Bucknell claimed the overall, men’s and women’s Cup titles in 2009-10. It was the 13th straight year and the 16th time overall that the Bison took home the women’s title. In 2009-10, Bucknell won Patriot League titles in women’s cross country, men’s soccer, women’s indoor track & field, women’s outdoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field, women’s rowing, baseball and softball. Additionally, the women’s water polo team captured the CWPA Southern Division championship, and the wrestling team sent four student-athletes to the NCAA Championships and produced two All-Americans.

Bucknell ranks FIFTH in the nation (to Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State and Stanford) in total number of ESPN The Magazine All-America selections with 118.

A major element in ensuring Bucknell’s commitment to athletics excellence is the Kenneth G. Langone Athletics & Recreation Center, which opened fully in 2003. One of the finest collegiate athletics facilities of its kind, the center includes the 4,000-seat Sojka Pavilion, the Olympic class Kinney Natatorium, the Krebs Family Fitness Center and the Berger Family Weight Room. A Hall of Fame area, a display of Bucknell’s Medal of Honor recipients, a new Academic All-America wall, a sports medicine suite, modern offices for coaches and staff, and locker room and classroom space are also included in the facility’s layout.

Bucknell Bison Athletics

A National Model in Promoting the Scholar-Athlete Ideal Bucknell Athletics is first and foremost a student-centered organization, one that strives to be a national model when it comes to operating by a true scholar-athlete model. At Bucknell, student-athletes’ academic programs are their first priority, and providing a competitive Division I athletics program only advances the mission, values and residential learning goals of the university. To that end, the Department of Athletics and Recreation proactively seeks ways to assist student-athletes in their daily academic pursuits. Below are just some of the student-athlete support programs currently in place. FACULTY ATHLETICS REPRESENTATIVE: The faculty athletics representative (FAR) is a member of the faculty or administrative staff who is designated to represent Bucknell in its relationships with the NCAA and the Patriot League. Bucknell’s FAR is Mitch Chernin, Professor of Biology. The FAR can enhance the student-athlete experience by promoting a balance between academics, athletics and the social lives of student-athletes, which affords them opportunities to enjoy the full range of collegiate experiences available to students generally. SIDELINE COACH PROGRAM: This program is a truly unique initiative in Division I college athletics, and it involves the invitation of a member of the faculty, administration, staff or community by one of Bucknell’s 27 varsity teams. The participant has the opportunity to discuss the overall program with the respective coaching staff, including practice preparation and strategy for the upcoming contest. The sideline coach attends a practice session and an actual intercollegiate competition, where he/she is introduced to the team and gains rarely seen insight into the relationships that exist between player-coach and player-player. The purpose of the Sideline Coaches Program is to foster a better understanding by the faculty and administration of the roles played by coaches and athletes in the university’s competitive intercollegiate athletic arena. ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT CENTER: In the Fall of 2005, the Department of Athletics opened a study/computer lab for student-athletes on the concourse level of Sojka Pavilion. The center is outfitted with computers, a laser printer, four television monitors and a projection unit with computer, VCR and DVD player. Additionally, the study lab can be used as a meeting place for group projects, tutorial area or just a secluded and quiet study space before or after practice. LAPTOP PROGRAM: The Department of Athletics owns a number of laptop computers that may be signed out by student-athletes for use on away trips. STUDENT-ATHLETE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (SAAC): Representatives from each varsity team comprise the SAAC, which is designed to enhance the total studentathlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare, and fostering a positive student-athlete image. The Committee is an invaluable resource for promoting communication between athletics administration and student-athletes; promoting communication between athletics and campus-wide administration; providing feedback and insight, as well as soliciting responses into department issues and proposed NCAA legislation; building a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletics teams; organizing community service projects and efforts; creating a vehicle for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees; serving as a collective voice of campus student-athletes; and disseminating information to the student-athlete body. OTHER PROGRAMMING: The Department of Athletics, through the identification of outside speakers and periodic “Brown Bag Luncheons,” thrives to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience as well as to educate student-athletes on a variety of issues that may affect them throughout their collegiate career. Some recent topics of interest have been alcohol, nutrition, body image, hazing, sexuality, diversity, career development, study skills, religious life and gambling.

Returning are the Orange and Blue’s No. 1 singles player, No. 1 doubles team, two All-Patriot League selections and six players who totaled 72 singles victories in 2009-10, but Bucknell men’s tennis will still feature several new faces. Six of the Bison’s 10 players are sophomores or younger, and the Bison are hoping the new-look squad will have what it takes to bring them to their first Patriot League Championship match. Bucknell has advanced Josh Katten to the Patriot League Tournament semifinals in each of the last four seasons. Clearing that final hurdle is the next goal on the team’s list, and ninth-year head coach Rebecca Helt thinks they have the tools to get it done. “We expect Anton (Kovic) to be a big force back in that lineup again. I think it’s definitely going to be a stronger lineup this year,” said Helt, adding that as always, the starting six will make themselves known as the coaches get better feel for their student-athletes’ playing styles during the fall tournament season. “It’s going to be a very different look,” the head coach continued. “We’ve had three major impact freshmen come in. They’ll most definitely make an immediate impact on that lineup somewhere.” The freshman trio of Scott Bernstein, Kyle Rosen and Chris Tortora will join two Bison – senior co-captains Kovic and Mark Malloy – who have already made an impact on the lineup. Kovic moved into the No. 1 position in both singles and doubles as a junior last season and shouldered the load admirably. He recorded double-digit wins in singles for the second time in his career, while accomplishing the same feat in doubles for the third consecutive season. After moving into ninth place in career doubles victories (47-43) at Bucknell last year, Kovic is also knocking on the top-15 list in combined victories (75-77). Malloy will look to move back into the starting lineup after missing his entire junior year after studying abroad. The 2009 Second Team All-Patriot League selection is now expected to reclaim his former success. “He was a very, very successful player his sophomore year. He played No. 3 and just had an outstanding year,” said Helt. “In January right before coming back to school he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He took the semester off and had surgery, but he’s back and he’s playing really well.” Bucknell’s other returning veterans include juniors Gregg Cohenca and Gregory Maxson. Cohenca, who played primarily second singles last year, finished second on the squad in singles wins with a record of 14-16. That marked his first year to date reaching the double-digit mark, while his 15 doubles victories was also a career-high. Maxson has reached double-digit wins in each of his first two seasons in the Orange and Blue while playing primarily at sixth singles. As a sophomore last year, Maxson tallied a 12-12 singles mark, which included a season-high five-match winning streak in March. Bucknell’s youth movement started last season as the Bison brought in a corps of now-sophomores that posted some of the

team’s strongest numbers. Josh Katten became Bucknell’s first freshman to earn an All-Patriot League nod, garnering secondteam honors after leading the team in singles (17-14) and doubles (19-9) victories. Katten and classmate Evan Zimmer went 10-1 in doubles together, making them the winningest Bison duo last spring. Zimmer also experienced success in his own right, going 10-4 in singles, including a perfect 5-0 against Patriot League opponents. Kelly Morque, who played his way to the top of the lineup as Kovic’s doubles partner at the No. 1 position, shot out of the gates in his debut campaign. Morque won four of his first five singles matches and five of six contests in doubles when he first took to the courts for Bucknell. He eventually finished his season with a 13-14 doubles record, including an 8-3 mark during the fall tournament schedule. Bucknell’s season gets underway with the Northeast Intercollegiate in Providence, R.I., Sept. 17-19, with the Bison’s first home event – the Bucknell Invitational – is slated for Oct. 1-3. Dual action will get into full swing on Feb. 4 at Niagara before the Bison open Patriot League play in Annapolis, Md., taking on Navy, which knocked them out of the league tournament a year ago. Bucknell’s schedule, including its eight home events, will culminate with the Patriot League Championships April 15-17 in Bethlehem, Pa.

Bucknell women’s tennis continued on its road of success last season, and the Bison see no reason for that to change. A year after claiming a 14-7 record overall, including a 4-1 tally in the Patriot League, and advancing to the Patriot League Championship match for the sixth consecutive season vs. Army, Bucknell is counting on its wealth of Lauren Lucido experience to keep it at the top of its game. “We lost a good amount of talent from last year, but I think we’re still a very solid and deep team,” said Rebecca Helt, who is entering her 14th season as the women’s head coach. “We’ve added three freshmen who have the potential to contribute in that starting six, and we have three seniors in that starting lineup. I think it’s going to be a strong squad. “Having three seniors, there’s a high level of experience on the team,” Helt continued. “We certainly have learned a lot based on our results over the past three or four years of finishing second. Every year we go into the season with more experience and more confidence. Experience is a strength.” The 2010-11 season will see a changing of the guards at the first singles position with the graduation of the reigning Patriot League Player of the Year Tania Varela, but change is not

bad thing for the Bison when they have Lauren Lucido as the replacement. After three seasons, Lucido, who is also one of Bucknell’s three captains this year, is ranked in the top six in program annals in singles (64-26), doubles (67-21) and combined (131-47) victories. Despite playing primarily at No. 2 singles, she also holds a 10-1 career record in at the first position. That proven success is reason for the Bison to smile. “Lucido’s definitely going to be our No. 1,” said Helt of the three-time All-Patriot League selection. “She had an outstanding year last year, just unbelievable. I see her stepping up into that No. 1 spot and having a very solid year. I think she’s looking to chase some records.” Lucido needs 23 singles victories to take over the record from Tanya Sichko, a feat that seems possible after averaging just over 21 wins in her first three years and setting a career-best total of 28 victories as a junior. Although Lucido seems to be the clear choice to take the top spot in the lineup, the remaining starting five are not yet set in stone. “From there down, we’re just going to have to see how it plays out through the fall with the tournaments and see how much people have improved since last year,” said Helt. “We’ll sort through some positions as the year goes on.” Despite the uncertainty in the early goings, Bucknell knows it can rely on Lucido’s fellow seniors and co-captains, Dara Dwojewski and Lauren Rottkamp, to help anchor the team. Like their classmate, Dwojewski and Rottkamp have also broken onto the top-25 lists in victories. Rottkamp, who recorded a career-high 14 wins in singles last year, is tied for 17th in career singles victories with 36, while Dwojewski’s name appears among the leaders in career singles (31), doubles (28) and combined (59) wins. Both took their Army opponent to three sets in the Patriot League Championship match last season as well, forcing one of the closest outcomes in league history. The Bison’s junior class of Courtney Casey and Dumitrita Iepuras also brings its fair share of expertise. Iepuras is the more decorated of the two, having been named Second Team All-Patriot League in each of her first two seasons and posting some of the highest wins totals on the squad. The native of Moldova has 46 total singles victories – 23 each year – and last season became more of a doubles threat for the Bison after improving her performance from three wins as a freshman to 18 a year ago. Casey, who played predominantly at the No. 6 position, finished 10-3 in singles as a sophomore, including a 7-1 mark in dual competition. She also picked up steam in doubles as the year wore on, winning nine of her final 11 matches with former teammate Carlin Calcaterra. In dual competition last season, Bucknell went 43-17 (.717) as a team in doubles. Guiding the squad to that total was Lucido and Varela, who on top of claiming an 18-2 record together, set the program’s single-season mark for longest winning streak (18). Close behind was Iepuras and sophomore Daria Tuzhikova, who teamed up for a 15-5 record in the spring. Tuzhikova ultimately finished her debut campaign with 20 doubles victories, tying her with Varela for second on the team. A youthful quartet will give Bucknell even more options for the lineup in 2010-11. Sophomore Jennie Ciotti and incoming freshmen Kendyl Green, Elizabeth Morgan and Elena Vidrascu provide even more depth for the Bison. Bucknell’s fall tournament season gets started in a hurry as the Orange and Blue will host the Bucknell Invitational Sept. 17-19. Dual competition will get underway in February, leading off with Pittsburgh, while Patriot League action kicks off at Navy on March 27. The Bison will ultimately play for their seventh trip to the league championship with the Midshipmen hosting the tournament April 22-24 in Annapolis, Md.

2010-11 Bucknell Tennis


Tennis Alumni in Bucknell Athletics Hall of Fame William C. Bartol (1887): William Bartol, a pioneer of baseball and tennis at Bucknell and head of the mathematics department for 46 years, is generally given credit for creating the nickname “Bisons” for Bucknell athletic teams. An outstanding student and athlete as an undergraduate, he also served as head of the engineering department and as director of the observatory. Bartol played on baseball teams that lost only one game in four years while helping raise funds in support of the Athletic Association. About 1910, he suggested that the nickname “Bisons” be adopted for Bucknell teams because of the proximity of the campus to areas populated by the American bison in the late 1700s. Bartol, who died in 1940 at the age of 92, was connected with Bucknell longer than any other person in its history as a student, teacher and university historian. Bartol entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1987.

Steve Baird

Malcolm E. Musser (’18): A basketball and tennis player as an undergraduate and later varsity basketball coach and freshman football and baseball coach, Musser probably coached, taught and watched more Bucknell athletes than any other person. Musser entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1979. Thomas A. Thompson (’60): A three-year starter in baseball and basketball and captain of both teams, Thompson pitched in the Detroit Tigers system and has coached baseball, basketball, golf and tennis teams at Bucknell. Thompson entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1986.

Malcolm Musser

Alexander Anderson (’71): A three-year letterman in tennis and captain his senior year. Anderson had a career singles record of 38-2. He continues to hold the school record for consecutive match victories at 33, and is third in career singles match winning percentage at .950. Anderson entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1999. Stephen W. Baird (’72): The 1971 MAC fall tennis champion, Baird was an Eastern singles semifinalist and doubles finalist in 1972 and had a career 38-1 singles record. President of the American Platform Tennis Association, Baird is a five-time national champion in the sport. Baird entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1983.

Ed Hess

Alexander Anderson

Marjorie A. Deck (’73): Co-captain of the field hockey and basketball teams, Deck was also undefeated in tennis dual matches in her career and ranked fifth in the East as a senior. Deck is often referred to as one of the pioneers of women’s tennis at Bucknell having played on the team before women’s sports gained varsity status in the fall of 1973. Women’s tennis was given varsity status only months after Deck’s graduation. Her success on the club team had much to do with the upgrade of women’s tennis to varsity status. Deck entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 1989. Ed Hess (’90): One of the best tennis players in Bucknell history, Hess held the school record for singles victories at 60 until the fall of 2007, while accumulating only three singles losses during his career. He stands eighth on the singles-doubles combined win list at 101 and is 13th on Bucknell’s all-time doubles victories list. Hess won the East Coast Conference singles title in 1987, 1989 and 1990, in addition to two conference doubles titles. His teams won three ECC team championships, posting a 38-12 record in those seasons. Hess entered the Hall of Fame with the Class of 2003. Rose Ewan: One of Bucknell’s leading promoters of women’s athletics, Ewan was involved with Bison Athletics in various capacities for 25 years. As head women’s tennis coach for 18 years (1979-97), she compiled a 183-120-1 dual-match record and led the Bison to Patriot League championships in 1992 and 1994. Ewan also was named the Patriot League Coach of the Year following both championship seasons. From September 1991 to October 1992 the team won a school-record 25 straight matches. The 1991-92 team finished 16-1 and was part of a five-year stretch in which it went 64-9. Upon arriving at Bucknell in 1978, Ewan served as head coach of the field hockey and women’s lacrosse teams for one year, coordinator of women’s athletics in 1980, associate director of athletics in 1990 and eventually associate athletic director for recreation services prior to her retirement. Most importantly, Ewan successfully guided women’s athletics at Bucknell through a difficult transition period, including the merger of the men’s and women’s athletic departments. Ewan will enter the Hall of Fame with the Class of 2010.

Patriot League Now in its third decade as an all-sport conference combining academic and athletic excellence, the Patriot League sponsors championships in 23 men and women’s sports. Initially started as an NCAA Division I-AA football conference in 1986, the Patriot League became an all-sport conference in 1990 and includes American, Army, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh and Navy as full members, and Fordham, Georgetown and MIT as associate members. These institutions are among the oldest and most prestigious in the nation and their alumni have, and continue to play leadership roles in shaping our country. Since 1998, the Patriot League has ranked first each year among all Division I conferences awarding athletic aid in the NCAA Graduation Rate Report. The League finished at the top spot with 96 percent of its teams reporting a graduation rate of 85 percent or higher in the most recent data. In addition, 90 Patriot League teams earned NCAA Academic Performance Program Public Recognition Awards after posting academic progress rate scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. The Patriot League’s mission is simple, to provide successful competitive athletic experiences while maintaining high academic standards, and to prepare its student-athletes to be leaders in society. During the 2009-10 academic year, Patriot League student-athletes and teams have accomplished the following: • 11 Patriot League student-athletes earned CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors, with Army’s Andrew Maisano (Men’s Lacrosse), Erin Anthony (Women’s Basketball) and Elizabeth Betterbed (Women’s Soccer), Navy’s Beth Reed (Women’s Soccer), Alex Buck (Men’s Swimming and Diving) and Mark Van Orden (Track and Field) and Bucknell’s Patrick Selwood (Men’s Soccer) receiving First-Team Academic All-America recognition. • 50 Patriot League student-athletes received CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors. • The Patriot League placed second among all Division I conferences with 90 teams receiving NCAA Public Recognition Awards for their performance in the classroom. • Navy’s Beth Reed and Mark Van Orden received NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships. • Reed was also named the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Women’s Soccer Academic All-American of the Year, and won the Patriot League Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award. • Army’s Andrew Maisano won the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award for Men’s Lacrosse, and earned the Patriot League Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. • Army’s Elizabeth Betterbed was selected as a Rhodes Scholar. • Holy Cross’ Olivia Pruszko earned a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship. • Fordham’s John Skelton became the first Patriot League player taken in the NFL Draft since 1995. • Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum was named the ECAC Men’s Basketball Rookie of the Year and received multiple national freshman honors. • Navy’s Adam Meyer was named the Mid-Major Swimmer of the Year by CollegeSwimming.com, and received Honorable Mention All-America honors at the NCAA Championship Meet. • Bucknell won the 2010 Patriot League Presidents’ Cup. The Bison also won the male and female trophies. It was the eighth time in Patriot League history that a school won the overall, male and female titles. • Every Patriot League team won at least one championship for just the fifth time in League history. • Army Men’s Lacrosse defeated No. 2 Syracuse, 9-8, in double overtime in the NCAA Tournament first round. • Bucknell defeated Princeton in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament. • Three Patriot Leaguers were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, while a pair were chosen in the Major Lacrosse League Draft. • Army’s Garret Thul was named national freshman of the year by Inside Lacrosse.

Bucknell Athletics Mission Statement

The Department of Athletics and Recreation strives to set the standard of excellence for intercollegiate and intramural programs in higher education, thereby advancing and drawing attention to the mission, core values, and educational goals of Bucknell University. The Department believes that student-athletes’ academic programs must be their first priority. It is therefore committed to maintaining Bucknell’s high national ranking for student-athletes’ graduation rates and for producing Academic All-Americans, and to continued leadership of the Patriot League in Academic Honor Roll nominations, based on grade-point averages. The coaches’ and staff’s paramount responsibility is maintaining academic priorities and supporting student-athletes’ education, even while providing the rigorous and serious NCAA Division I athletic opportunities Bucknell student-athletes seek. Further, the Department promotes the personal growth of studentathletes and the general student body by encouraging personal health, development, and balance among intellectual, social, civic, and physical pursuits; by celebrating challenge and competition; and by preparing participants for service and leadership in the world. Coaches and staff direct a rich array of athletic programs and recreational opportunities aimed at increasing student engagement, as well as strengthening character, healthy living, teamwork, sportsmanship, and spirit. In creating shared experiences for students, faculty, and staff, as well as alumni, family, and friends, the Department’s programs add substantially to Bucknell’s sense of community and foster life-long relationships with Bucknell. The Department embraces the University’s decision to compete at the highest extramural level, in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Division I membership is valuable not only because this level of competition maximally challenges student-athletes, but also because it signals clearly Bucknell’s high standards and seriousness of purpose in all extracurricular endeavors and it helps position Bucknell apart from other National Liberal Arts Colleges. Likewise, the competitive success the Department seeks, measured in part by consistent contention for the Patriot League Presidents’ Cup, reflects positively upon Bucknell’s student-athletes and the University alike, and it brings distinction and national recognition to Bucknell. A student-centered operation, the Department is committed to providing equitable opportunities to women and men, as well as members of minority and majority groups of all kinds. The Department subscribes to, and complies with, all principles and regulations of the Patriot League, the Eastern College Athletic Conference, and the NCAA.

The Plan for Bucknell Bucknell is a unique national university where liberal arts and professional programs complement each other, where 3,350 full-time students are educated for a lifetime of critical thinking and strong leadership. For 160 years, the University has remained true to its fundamental purpose: to educate and prepare students for lives that make a difference and have a positive impact on the world. In keeping with that purpose, the University has developed The Plan for Bucknell, which includes its collective vision — “To provide students with the premier undergraduate experience in American higher education.” The Plan comprises five strategies. Strengthen the Academic Core aims to ensure that a Bucknell education is challenging and engaging, with openness to new ideas and a culture of innovation; Deepen the Residential Learning Experience will provide a residential learning and living experience that complements the academic program, integrates the athletics and recreation program and promotes personal growth and development and civic and ethical responsibility; Enhance Diversity is a commitment to diversity in all its forms within a civil and supportive environment of open exchange to prepare Bucknell graduates to live and work in a globally integrated and intercultural world; Build Bridges will bring the world to Bucknell — through visiting scholars and sports teams, international students and alumni, guest speakers, international focus semesters, and electronic communications — and bring Bucknell to the world through strategic partnerships and community engagement activities as well as opportunities for off-campus study and faculty research; Secure Our Financial Future will secure resources necessary to engage new opportunities, lessen dependence on tuition, and ensure our financial future. The Plan for Bucknell was unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees on April 29, 2006, having previously been approved by the students and faculty. We have begun implementing it and are determined to make it a reality over the next decade.

Bucknell Varsity Tennis Courts

The Kenneth Langone Athletics & Recreation Center The Bucknell University Department of Athletics and Recreation prides itself on setting the standard of excellence when it comes to success both on the playing fields and in the classroom. With 16 Patriot League Presidents’ Cups in 20 years, national leadership in graduation rates, 118 Academic All-Americans in 40 years and 118 Patriot League Scholar-Athletes in 20 years, Bucknell is clearly at the head of the class in terms of upholding the scholarathlete model. The addition of the Kenneth G. Langone Athletics and Recreation Center, one of the finest collegiate athletics and recreation venues of its kind, ensures the continuation of that success. The facility enhances each of Bucknell’s 27 varsity programs and greatly expands the scope of its growing intramural and recreational sports offerings. A visually appealing structure located along Moore Avenue on the “downhill” side of campus, the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center was designed to reach out to all members of the campus community, including the student body, varsity student-athletes, faculty, staff and alumni. Three primary venues lie within the facility: the Arthur D. Kinney Jr. Natatorium, the 4,000-seat Gary A. Sojka Pavilion and the Krebs Family Fitness Center. Other features include a new location for the Bucknell Athletics Hall of Fame, a display of Bucknell’s Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, a brand new display highlighting Bucknell’s all-time Academic All-Americans, a sports medicine and athletic training suite, classrooms, modern offices for coaches and staff and increased locker room space for varsity and recreational athletes. The facility is named in honor of Ken Langone, a 1957 Bucknell graduate who, along with his wife Elaine, pledged $11 million toward the center’s construction. Langone was a member of the university Board of Trustees from 1980 to 1996. One of the special qualities of the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center is the manner in which it supplements the pre-existing facilities. The construction surrounds Gerhard Fieldhouse and historic Davis Gymnasium, which has been restored as a competition venue for the Bison wrestling and volleyball teams, as well as intramural, recreation and other varsity practice activities. As Bucknell continues to strive toward its mission of setting the standard of excellence in college athletics, the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center becomes the centerpiece in an already impressive cache of athletics facilities that includes the 13,100-seat Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium and its newly installed FieldTurf and 8-lane track surface; the scenic Bucknell Golf Club; Depew Field, the home of the Bison baseball team; the West Fields softball diamond; and Emmitt Field and Graham Field at Holmes Stadium, the new portion of the West Fields project that includes covered grandstand seats, ticket and concession areas, team rooms, a training room and a press box area for soccer, field hockey and women’s lacrosse.
