Bridgeport, Conn.-On the morning of Friday, October 17, student-athletes and coaches from each of the University of Bridgeport’s 13 varsity sports teams came together to take part in the East Coast Conference-wide initiative, Team Up To Clean Up.
UB student-athletes collected almost 30 pounds of trash from Seaside Park which is located adjacent to the University of Bridgeport’s campus. In fact, the Purple Knights’ softball diamond which opened for play last season is located within Seaside Park.
“We feel that Seaside Park is really part of our campus, said Bridgeport Director of Athletics Anthony Vitti. Seaside is part of what makes UB a special place as we have this beautiful green space that borders on Long Island Sound. It’s great to be able to walk out of your office, classroom or dorm and just spend some time in the park, and I’m glad we could do something to help keep it beautiful.”
