SUNY Potsdam coach Tara Ruckh accepts bucket challenge


Earlier this summer, former Bear, Canton native and current assistant women’s basketball coach at Averett University, Katy Briedis ‘13 challenged SUNY Potsdam coach Tara Ruckh.

All challenged coaches had 48 hours to accept and the challenge. If a coach declined the challenge, they were to donate $250 to the Kay Yow Fund. If they accepted the challenge, they were doused with a large bucket of ice water and donate $50 to the Fund. Ruckh was excited to support a good cause, if not so excited to be soaked in ice-cold water. She passed the challenge on to SUNYAC rival Oswego State Coach Tracy Bruno. The Kay Yow Fund is named for the former N.C. State women’s basketball coach who lost her fight to breast cancer in 2009. The organization partners with the V Foundation and is committed to raising money for scientific research in order to fight women’s cancers. (Submitted Photo)
