Donna Crone has been appointed Interim Athletics Director, following the passing of Joe Nadicksbernd last month. She has been Senior Woman Administrator for the past 12 years and Assistant Athletics Director for Compliance for the past four years. Assistant Athletics Director Mike Nienaber and Administrative Assistant Susan Fuller will also share more responsibilities in the Department of Athletics.
A 1983 alumna, Crone played basketball and tennis as a student at CBU. She served as head softball coach for 10 years, coaching 16 All-GSC players and two GSC Freshmen of the Year. In her first season, her team set an NCAA record which still stands with seven triples in a game. Crone, the school’s all-time winningest coach, led CBU to its four highest win totals.
