The Varsity Weight Room

2008 1st Team All-Atlantic 10 Conference Pitcher Sherri Thompson is spotted by freshman and Smethport, PA native Diana Phalon. (Click the picture below to watch part of our workout!)

Our student-athletes workout three times a week to prepare themselves for the coming season. They understand that being good is not good enough. Our objective is to be great and the weight room helps us reach our full potential as athletes.

Every lift is over-seen by Head Strength Coach Daryn Fiske and is set up to maximize each player's potential. Lifting also keeps us away from injury as the stronger you are the faster you can come back from an injury or prevent one from ever happening.

Softball Prepares for 2009!

Freshman Brooke Frey works hard to prepare herself for the fast approaching Atlantic 10 season.

"Hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard." - Coach Fiske

Reaching three out of the last four Atlantic 10 Championships and placing 2nd in the 2008 regular season, SBU softball has established itself as one of the elite teams in the A10. We are a very talented team and we will not let anyone out work us.

The weight room is a physical place but more than that, lifting prepares us mentally for the rigors of a hectic schedule come spring. If a student-athlete can excel in the weight room, she will reach her full potential on the field.

A 35 mile view from the top of Rock City Park

Rock City Field Trip

The St. Bonaventure softball team took a day out of their busy fall season to take a trip to Rock City Park. Rock City is about 15 minutes from campus and boasts the worlds largest visible formation of quartz rock. A small jewel that helps make the country setting of SBU one of its many strengths.

The team trekked in vans to Rock City where they hiked along the 1 mile trail and had lunch before returning to campus later in the day. The image above is from a perfect 72 degree day. We make it a priority to understand and experience all that SBU and the surrounding community has to offer.
