The Brockport News Bureau reports on the following development in Brockport Athletics...

The College at Brockport, State University of New York, announced today that Linda J. (Lin) Case ’89 will retire from her position as director of athletics as of May 31, 2010.

Case has led Golden Eagle Athletics since 1995, when she became the second female athletic director in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC). A 1977 SUNY Cortland graduate, Case taught and coached at the Elmira Heights Central School District and worked at the Penfield Racquet Club prior to becoming the assistant athletic director at Brockport in 1987. She earned her master’s degree from Brockport in 1989 and became the college’s senior women’s administrator until she became athletic director in 1995.

“I will treasure my experience at Brockport. It has been a great ride!” said Case.

In her tenure, Case has been recognized as the ECAC Administrator of the Year, inducted into Cortland “C” Club Athletic Hall of Fame and the Canandaigua Academy Athletic Hall of Fame and truly left a legacy in Golden Eagle Athletics. She was the driving force behind the “College Athletes for a Winning Attitude,” a three-year drug and alcohol education program coordinated with the Brockport Central School District; the implementation of the NCAA CHAMPS Life Skills program; the creation of student-athlete appreciation programs; and built a tradition of student-athlete community service.

"I am indebted to Lin for everything she has accomplished for the College these many years," said Dr. Katy Wilson, vice president of enrollment management and student affairs. "She always has the best interest of our students at the heart of any decision."
