From the Director of Athletics – May 2019


Dear Deacs,

As we approach the conclusion of the spring sports regular season, all seven of our sports are performing well and have either secured or are contending for an NCAA tournament berth. Both tennis teams and golf teams have already secured those berths and have the potential to go deep within their respective tournaments and challenge for NCAA championships. The baseball team is improving weekly and is in a strong position to attract an NCAA tournament bid. Both track teams have individuals who have shown tremendous improvement and have excellent chances of qualifying for the NCAA championships. The next few weeks will be exciting as we follow all of our teams to postseason play.

Congratulations to Megan Anderson, Petros Chrysochos, Jules Grashoff and Mimi Smith for being awarded the Weaver-James-Corrigan postgraduate scholarship. The scholarship is given to student-athletes in the ACC who excel academically and athletically, while also demonstrating exemplary conduct in the community.

On the facility front, the Sutton Sports Performance Center and Shah Basketball Complex are close to completion. Our men’s and women’s basketball staffs and our football staff will move into those magnificent structures over the next couple of months.

Thank you for all you do to support our program and allow us to DEVELOP CHAMPIONS!

Go Deacs!

Ron Wellman
