Sports Information Office
This office is primarily responsible for coordinating and producing the many media,
both electronic and print, pieces that are disseminated throughout the local and
national markets during the year. The staff members not only take care of
game/match statistical responsibilities, but also coordinate the publishing of the
various media brochures, provide game/match programs for all home contests,
report all statistics to the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference and the NCAA,
update the athletic pages of the BSC web site, and will assist anyone with the proper
usage of the BSC athletic logo.
Athletic Training Department
Three full-time certified athletic trainers staff the main athletic training room, which
is located on the third floor of the Student Services building adjacent to Bill Battle
Coliseum and two satellite training rooms, one in Panther Stadium and the other in
Bill Battle Coliseum. These staff members are a vital part of the athletic program in
that they are responsible for the prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of
injuries sustained by our student-athletes. The Athletic Training department also
coordinates pre-participation physical exams, drug testing, and the referral of
student-athletes who require physician consultation and/or medical procedures.

primary insurance policy will be covered by the college’s secondary insurance
