As Brock’s 50th Anniversary quickly approaches, Brock Alumni Relations continues to celebrate the upcoming milestone by delving into the University’s archives and sharing  photos housed in Special Collections at the James A. Gibson Library at Brock.  Photos were also obtained from the book:  40 Years Brock University Athletics A Pictorial History and Brock Athletics.

Brock’s athletic landscape is vast - thousands of men and women have proudly donned the Badger uniform.  The one thing all Badgers have in common? The commitment, sacrifice and heart that has contributed to Brock’s athletic excellence throughout it’s history.  Here are just a few ‘Let’s Go Badgers’ moments.  Do you recognize any of these athletes?

    What great pics. Skimming over the names of the participants, it gave me a chuckle to see Kirk “Leaper” in the 1989-1990 Cheerleading squad!
