Athletic staff presented with conference awards Reply

Zachary Gray – Co-Editor-in-Chief

Athletic Director Kristy Walter and Sports Information Director Todd Montana were both presented administrative awards for the 2012-2013 academic year by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. The conference’s athletic directors named Walter Executive of the Year following a vote, as Montana was tabbed as the GNAC’s SID of the Year.

During the 2012-13 year, Lasell added men’s and women’s track and field to increase the number of sports to 17. Walter also saw the women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse teams capture GNAC Championships.

Fun fact: I’ve never hit a homerun at any level of baseball.

Because my “skill” was short lived, I resorted to fanhood. I’m a Boston sports fan (Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and Bruins) and enjoy seeing the underdog win. There are some things, however, that might seem unusual for a Boston sport fan. More…
