COLORADO SPRINGS, Co. - Northampton Director of Athletics Troy Tucker has been chosen to be a member of a newly formed national committee to study NJCAA Division III Athletics. The committee, commissioned by the NJCAA, will look at a multitude of items at the DIII level, including eligibility rules, participation numbers and finances.
The Committee, which will be chaired by Mr. Tom Stewart, the Director of Athletics at Holyoke Community College (MA) and the NJCAA Men's 2nd Vice President, will collaborate throughout the year and come up with list of proposals and ideas to strengthen Division III that will be presented to the NJCAA Executive Committee in January.
"I am very excited to have been asked to be part of this committee and represent Region XIX," remarked Tucker, "the Division III level is very unique and many times the challenges we face are quite different than those experienced at the DI or DII levels. I am looking forward to working with Vice President Stewart and an outstanding group of athletic director's to hopefully put the wheels in motion for some changes at the DIII level."
In addition to his role as Director of Athletics at Northampton, Tucker also serves as the Chair of the Region XIX Executive Committee, Chief Information Officer of Region XIX and is a member of the Executive Committee of the National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA).
