GO Bears!

home page

Welcome Fellow Bears,

This site is dedicated to the University of Northern Colorado Bears 1996-1997 National Championship teams, and special dedication goes to my father Chuck Runge. He spent countless hours collecting and cataloging everything written about the Bears from 1994-1998, and I hope we all can appreciate how much time and effort he put into scrapbooks to remember these years by.  I’m very happy to be able to share this with all of you, and hope you enjoy reading through these as much as I do.  My dad’s work was all done with scissors, glue, and scotch tape, and I hope that my efforts to digitize these come out alright.  If you come across anything that doesn’t look great, or could use some clean up, let me know, and I’ll work on getting a cleaner version.  Also, I’m sure many of you have pictures or other mementos that would be a great addition to the site.  Leave me a message at colinrunge@gmail.com and we can figure out how to get them added.  Hope that everyone is doing well, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this fall.

Thanks and in the words of our fearless leader, Powder River – Let ‘er Buck,

#67 Colin Runge
