2006-2007: A great year to have been a Bronco!

June 13, 2007

From the Bronco Bench Foundation

As the 2006-2007 academic year comes to a close, the Bronco Bench Foundation would like to be sure to thank each of our members for your generous contributions. Without your continued support, Santa Clara's student-athletes may not have been able to achieve all that they have achieved in the classroom, in athletic competition and in the community over the past academic year.

* In the classroom, SCU's student-athletes achieved a cumulative GPA that exceeds 3.0 for the first time in recent history, while maintaining a 4-year average graduation rate that is the highest in the conference.

* In athletic competition, the Broncos won the West Coast Conference Commissioner's Cup for the second time in the past three years, while teams and individual student-athletes received a variety of Conference and NCAA awards.

* In the community, Santa Clara's student-athletes shared their talents with others through the Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative, Sacred Heart Nativity School, Homesafe Women's Shelter and a variety of other philanthropic organizations.

These are just a few of the reasons that the Bronco Bench Foundation is proud to be in their 45th year of supporting Santa Clara's student-athletes.

This summer, be sure to check out the new Bronco Bench website at for exciting updates and important news about the Bronco Bench Foundation.

Finally, if you haven't renewed your Bronco Bench membership this year and you still want to have been an integral part of the Broncos' success, there's still time to act. Please call Liz Courter at 408-554-5577 or email her at before June 30, 2007.

And remember...If you're not on the team, the next best place to be is on The Bench!

Go Broncos...
