A Look Into Hidden Data: Using Biometric Data to Optimize Bucknell Field Hockey Team Efficiency
In the new era of  technology, there have been innovations created to benefit all generations.  For example, phones for communication, GPS systems for navigation, and for  sports, biometric systems. Biometrics is the technical term for body  measurements and calculations. This information can allow coaches and  statisticians to assess physical and physiological information of a  players’ performance and recovery in their given sport. In the sport of  field hockey, as the game becomes more competitive, high-level programs are  beginning to rely more and more heavily on the statistics and data produced  by games and practices. In working alongside Coach Jeremy Cook, an analysis  of individual players’ fitness and in-game performance was conducted. We  will discuss the results of our study and recommendations that we were able  to make to improve team efficiency.

How to Dance: The Most Effective Ways for College Basketball Teams to Make the Tournament
Data analytics is becoming much more prominent in the world of sports. The data collected and the statistics calculated can help coaches learn more about their individual players and their collective team.  We conducted a study with the Bucknell men’s and women’s basketball teams to determine which statistics contribute most directly to wins (mens) or rating percentage index (womens).  Results of our study and recommendations that were made to the coaching staff regarding their teams performance will be presented.

Maximizing Bucknell Baseball's Dinger Potential
In this day and age, the world of sports has become ever more reliant on statistics.  When done correctly, the analysis of a team's statistics can help to show the strengths and weaknesses of players.  For our project, we analyzed game data from the university's baseball team from games played last season, collected by the team's FlightScope tracker.  This presentation will discuss what we discovered about which players had the best overall performance in a number of categories, such as launch angles and exit velocities of hit balls, and whether certain variables explain the on-field performance of the players.

Math & Football, An Unlikely Pairing: How statistical analyses help coaches make in-game decisions
Analytics is taking over the world of sports, including football. Teams on the professional and collegiate level are relying more and more upon statistics to give them a competitive advantage over their opponents. Our task in helping the Bucknell football team was to analyze four different areas: possession and ten efficiency, first down efficiency, third and fourth down conversion efficiency, and red zone efficiency. Not only did we analyze data for all of the games this season, but we attended practice to record important data on our own. We will share the results of our analyses and our recommendations to the coaches, which influenced their play calling in the final games of the season.
