New Athletics Identity Updates the 'Bucs'
Atlantic Cape also unveiled its new athletics identity this fall, a red and blue Buccaneer pirate ship sailing on a sea of blue. As a secondary mark, the ‘Bucs’ teams will sport crossed cutlasses with the linked letters “A” and “C” on their athletic uniforms.
“Having a strong athletic identity is a key component in being a great athlete,” said Carmen Royal, dean of students. “Atlantic Cape’s new athletic identity clearly defines who we are. Both men and women athletes can proudly call themselves true Buccaneers.”
The college’s new athletics identity is the Buccaneer pirate ship.
The new look, prompted by Dr. Mora’s push to expand the college’s intercollegiate athletics program, was the result of a creative interaction between Student Government Association leaders, athletics, and college relations staffers.
In the last three years, Atlantic Cape has gone from two intercollegiate sports--co-ed archery and men’s basketball--to seven with the addition of men’s soccer, women’s basketball, men’s baseball, women’s softball and women’s volleyball. In addition, a co-ed golf team is expected to debut as a club sport in spring 2011 with full intercollegiate status expected in 2012. The team will be based at the Mays Landing Golf and Country Club.
“It is very important to note that our commitment to expanding sports and fitness programs is based on providing opportunities for student engagement with the college outside of class,” Dr. Mora said. “The literature in higher education strongly indicates that increased opportunity for student engagement, as provided by sports and fitness programs along with other types of activities, will contribute to higher levels of student retention and graduation. Support for sports and fitness programs is an investment in student success.”
