QUEENSBURY — SUNY Adirondack has hired Julie Clark as the college’s new full-time assistant director of athletics.
Clark comes to SUNY Adirondack after serving Adirondack Sports Complex as director of sports programs and field hockey for 11 years. Clark previously served student-athletes in the intercollegiate athletics field for 12 years, mostly as a field hockey coach, according to a news release.
SUNY Adirondack Athletic Director Jonathan Sisk said Clark brings a lot of experience to the table. She is a certified U.S Field Hockey official, working at both the high school and collegiate levels. She is president of the local officiating chapter of New York State Field Hockey Officials Association.
Clark has coached at University of Richmond, James Madison University and Skidmore College. She has served as athletics supervisor for Skidmore College, facility manager for SUNY New Paltz and athletics business manager for Drew University.
“Clark has a history of holding those around her accountable and making her teams better while having unquestionable integrity, which were key attributes we targeted during the search process,” Sisk said in a news release.
Clark graduated from Syracuse University with a bachelor’s degree in health and exercise science while competing in the school’s field hockey program.
