Drake Athletics Welcomes First-Year Students To Campus
Drake Athletics officially welcomed the entire class of first-year Drake students to campus on Thursday evening at the Knapp Center.
Many Bulldog student-athletes and staff spent earlier parts of the week helping those students move into their residence halls and on Thursdayinvited them to the Knapp Center to meet the teams and learn about Drake's rich athletic history and traditions.
Director of athletics Sandy Hatfield Clubb, head football coach Rick Fox, head men’s basketball coach Ray Giacoletti and head women’s basketball coach Jennie Baranczyk also addressed the class and offered insight on how athletics does and can play a role in their experience at Drake.
The assembled class also joined Drake’s cheerleaders and the football team in learning and singing ‘The D Song’ before being introduced to the Bulldogs’ fall sports teams by their respective team captains.
