Pioneer Pride Connects Students and Sports

Pioneer Pride is a student led organization at Malone University that supports all 18 sports programs.

The organization itself was founded just a few years ago by Mike Terry, who also served as the Student Body President.

Pioneer Pride’s mission is to get students involved with sports on campus as well as making them aware of home sporting events. Once aware, it encourages student to be active at events by creating themes for home games to bring people together. Our goal is to give as much support as possible to our athletes.

Some of our bigger events include tailgates for some of the home football games and the Red Sea theme for basketball, volleyball and soccer. Other themes that occur for sports games are “white out” and “big blue sea.”

We aspire to bring more exotic themes to the table this year as well as begin a new tradition during the first basketball game of the season. Basketball games seem to get the best turn out for students because of its location in Osborne Hall and the history of success in the program. We would really like to see an expansion of the number of students at our other sports on campus as well.

I am very excited to watch Malone sports this year, and I am excited to see how Pioneer Pride can contribute to them. It is amazing to see what a difference an energetic crowd behind a team can do to their performances.

We hope to deliver that this year, with Pioneer Pride leading the way.
