A two-year letterwinner and member of Bucknell Class of 1980, Jim Knight begins his 14th season this spring working with the current Bison steeplechase runners. Much of Knight’s own collegiate success came in the steeplechase as he placed second in 1979 and third in 1980 in the event at the East Coast Conference Championships.
Knight also had his share of success on the cross country course. In the fall of 1979, one year after taking 22nd at the ECC Championships, the Vestal, N.Y., native won the individual title at the conference meet besting teammate and second-place finisher Rick Sayre by 18 seconds. Knight went on to finish 31st at the NCAA District Two Championship later that season.
Knight currently works at Bucknell as the Senior Associate Director of Energy and Utilities.
