HAMDEN, Connecticut - Quinnipiac's newly hired Director of Athletics and Recreation Greg Amodio was recently featured in the New Haven Register on Friday, July 24, 2015. The article, written by Chip Malafronte, highlights Amodio's path to Quinnipiac and touches on some of the goals Amodio wants to meet in hopes of raising the school's pedigree to a national level.
Expectations are soaring for Quinnipiac as the Bobcats celebrated trips to the NCAA Tournament in four different sports in 2014-15 - women's basketball, men's ice hockey, women's ice hockey and women's tennis - as well as a trip to the NCAA East Regional for Quinnipiac Female Athlete of the Year Shameal Samuels of the outdoor track and field team. In addition, both Quinnipiac's women's rugby team and the acrobatics and tumbling squad advanced to the semifinal round of their respective sport's national tournaments.
