It may only be a few weeks into the new semester, but Bucks’ sports programs are already in high gear. With two teams reigning as last year’s champions as well as a new coach, this season is expected to be a good one.

The Golf team started out early, with their first tournament September 5. Under coach Scott Bradshaw the team is the defending EPCC South Champion. The golfers hope to capitalize on last season’s success and take it even further. Their next scheduled tournament is tomorrow at 11 a.m.

The women’s volleyball team has already played four games this season. Coach Charles Burrage has his girls ready for the long season ahead. They will be competing through the end of October. Come see them take on Harrisburg tonight at 6 p.m.

Soccer is in full swing. They will be playing games through November. Brian Laiacona, the team’s new coach will look to build on last year’s triumphs. Last year’s squad won the State Championship under the coaching of Rick Brownell. They play at 4 p.m. today at Penn State Delaware.

The Hunt Seat and Western equestrian teams will not begin until October. Their first two events take place October 4. Both events are in Saddlebrook PA from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Their season continues through November with eleven scheduled events. Dee Jones will again be coaching both teams.

The men’s basketball team starts its season November 12 against Reading. Their season continues into next semester. Second year head coach Drew Kelly hopes his team will be playing late into February.

Athletic Director Dr. Priscilla Rice has high expectations for all the teams and is calling for the support of Bucks fans.

“I hope that the teams play as well or better then last year,” Dr. Rice said. “They [the fans] would be an asset to the spirit of all our teams.”
