The Hendrix College athletics department and Adidas have entered into an agreement. The Portland, Oregon-based company will supply footwear, apparel, uniforms and accessories for the black and orange's athletic teams.

"Signing with an apparel company is something that we had discussed for years but hadn't pulled the trigger on," director of athletics Amy Weaver said. "However, when we were approached by Adidas and Southwest Sporting Goods, it was an offer too good to turn down. Their value of Hendrix College and our athletic department was evident as well as their commitment to the highest quality of gear. We are excited for this partnership as our student-athletes deserve nothing but the best and that is exactly what they are getting."

Hendrix College's intercollegiate teams, coaching staffs will be outfitted in Adidas uniforms, sideline gear, footwear and accessories.

Hendrix joins a select number of universities who are partnered with Adidas, including Arizona State, East Carolina, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina State and Texas A&M.

Adidas also holds agreements with professional sport leagues such as the National Basketball Association (NBA), National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB).

Baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, field hockey, football, men's and women's golf, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, softball, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track and field and volleyball will all benefit from this agreement.
