New Athletic Director

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that Matt Harrod has graciously accepted the position of Athletic Director for St. Paul. I want to thank him for taking on such an important and meaningful position and I know he will do a great job for the community. Matt will not be taking over until sometime in May so please direct all questions and concerns to myself until that time. Matt will be learning the ins and outs of behind the scene parts of the position over the next few months so please allow him with the opportunity to learn everything before we ask too many questions of him.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say it has been a blessing for me to be involved with the St. Paul sports program over the last eight years and thank the entire community for allowing me to serve with the Sports Committee for these past several years. It has truly been a wonderful experience and I hope the success and tradition will carry on for many years to come and as always, GO RAIDERS!!
