Lewisburg, PA. – adidas, a global leader in the sporting goods industry, has signed on as the official equipment and apparel supplier with the Bucknell Men’s Lacrosse team. The Bucknell Bison will take the field using the latest adidas Lacrosse sticks, handles and protective equipment and custom Bucknell uniforms as part of the agreement.
“Bucknell University’s men’s lacrosse team continues a long and storied history as one of the top DI team year after year. Under the tutelage of Coach Fedorjaka it has continued to be a powerhouse within the Patriot league. We are proud to become the exclusive lacrosse specific partner with Bucknell” said George Parks, Director of Lacrosse at adidas Lacrosse.
The Bison have enjoyed a strong run of success in recent years, with national rankings and victories over top-20 programs the norm. Bucknell played in the 2008 and 2009 Patriot League championship games, and with three of their top four scorers, an all-conference faceoff man and the entire defense returning from last season, the Bison have high hopes in 2011.
“adidas has been a valuable partner for all our programs,” said Bucknell Director Athletics John Hardt. “They have been very responsive to the needs and input of our student-athletes and coaches, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with them through the Henson Group to partner in their new endeavor of lacrosse-specific performance equipment.”
