Diplomat Mascots Unveiled

  • newmascots


The new Ben and John mascots made their debut at the Friday, Aug. 31, women's soccer game between Franklin & Marshall and Delaware Valley. The night game was the first played by a Franklin & Marshall team at the North Campus Athletic Field. The Diplomats won the game 1-0.

The Diplomat duo were escorted to the shining new turf facility by Franklin & Marshall public safety officers. The mascots worked the crowd, which chanted "Go Dips!" as the statesmen made their way into the group.

Ben and John are sponsored by the Franklin & Marshall Athletic Support Club, a student-run organization of the Diplomat faithful, and will serve to whip F&M fans into a frenzy at home games this season.
