Randolph Names David Heberger New Sports Information Director
LYNCHBURG, VA - Randolph College has announced the hiring of David Heberger as its new sports information director.
For the past three years, Heberger served as sports information director for Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pa. During that time, he assisted Juniata's athletics department in hosting five Landmark Conference Tournaments, a 2014 NCAA Field Hockey First Round game, the 2015 Women's Volleyball NCAA Regional, and a 2017 NCAA Men's Volleyball First Round match.
Heberger's resume also includes seven years as an assistant sports information director for four institutions in New York—Hartwick College, Union College, State University of New York at Potsdam, and the University of Rochester. Heberger earned a B.S. degree in computer science from the State University of New York at Brockport in 2004, and a second B.S. degree in sports management from St. John Fisher College in 2008.
"We're excited to have Dave join our team," said Randolph Director of Athletics Tina Hill. "He brings with him nearly 10 years of sports information experience that will serve us well. He will also serve as an excellent supervisor for our new NCAA intern and will be a great resource in the development of new undergraduate internships for our communication studies majors."
"When I arrived on campus for my interview, I could feel right away what makes Randolph a special place," Heberger added. "I look forward to meeting and working with the athletics staff and telling the stories of the student-athletes that represent this institution."
Heberger will oversee communications for Randolph's 19 intercollegiate athletics programs, including supervising the department's website, social media accounts, and printed materials. In addition, he will hold crucial roles with game management, statistics, and media relations, and will supervise and mentor an NCAA grant-sponsored intern and student employees.
Heberger replaces former sports information director Ryan Killilea, who held the position for the past two years, and is moving to Raleigh, NC.
