St. Bonaventure Wins Fourth Annual A-10 SAAC Video Competition

Release: 04/01/2014
Send this article to a friend Print RSS

Newport News, Va. – St. Bonaventure captured the fourth annual Atlantic 10 Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) "Commitment To Teammates” Video Competition after the Bonnies won the online fan vote and finished third in the campus SAAC vote.

SBU’s submission focused on student-athletes being there for their teammates on the playing field, in the classroom, on campus and showing support in all the endeavors they will take part in during their time on campus. The video was dedicated to Bonnie Assistant Sports Information Director Brian Moretti and baseball student-athlete Andrew Revello, who both passed away recently.

“Commitment to Teammates” was selected as the theme by the A-10 SAAC.  The videos were meant to express what it means to be on a team, how bonds are formed through sports, and how lasting friendships and relationships are forged.

The annual competition's winner is determined by two equally weighted components: the online fan vote and voting conducted by each institution's campus SAAC organization. Each SAAC has the opportunity to rank their top three videos, which are then assigned a weighted point value (1st – 3 points, 2nd – 2 points, 3rd – 1 point).

“I want to congratulate St. Bonaventure on winning this year’s SAAC video competition, but I also want to commend the student-athletes on each of our campuses for the dedication to SAAC and their participation in this competition,” stated Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade.  “The videos were well produced and communicated the significance of “team” in very different but creative and meaningful ways, I would encourage you to watch!”

Just under 10,000 votes were cast on Atlantic10.com over a weeklong period. SBU garnered 3,178 of those votes, edging second-place Dayton by just 432 votes.  UMass finished in third-place in the online vote with 719 votes. George Washington placed fourth online with 655 votes, while VCU and Duquesne tied for fifth-place online.

SBU then finished third among the campus SAAC votes to conclude the competition with a total of 46 points overall. Dayton placed fifth in the campus vote to take second-place overall for the competition with 36 points.  VCU earned the top spot among the campus votes, placing either first or second on eight of the ballots.   The Rams finished with 33 points total to place third overall, while George Washington finished in fourth-place with 16 points and Fordham finished fifth overall with 14 points.

Aside from the theme, student‐athletes were restricted only by suggested time parameters and the requirement that all videos must be student‐produced. For the first-time ever, all 13 Atlantic 10 SAACs submitted a video for consideration.

George Washington’s fourth-place finish comes on the heels of its winning submission in last year’s competition that focused on the “Evolution of the Student-Athlete.” GW’s submission highlighted the journey of their diverse community of student athletes, explained in their video, “At GW, we start out as individual athletes, and evolve into one community, where in school, athletics and life, we strive to Raise High the Buff & Blue,” a campus‐wide slogan for the Colonials.

“Anti‐bullying” was the theme of the 2012 competition, a theme chosen by a unanimous vote of the A‐10 SAAC that provided the perfect canvas for A‐10 student‐athletes to create compelling messages of hope, compassion and strength. The inaugural video competition during the 2010‐11 academic year involved campus SAACs creating a video that promoted an NCAA or institutional core value (e.g., sportsmanship, sense of community, commitment to service, academic and athletic excellence), or an ideal that student‐athletes are especially proud of or passionate about.
