Dulude '07 elevated to assistant athletic director role at Saint Michael's

COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College has promoted Meggan (Roberge) Dulude '07 to assistant director of athletics, effective Dec. 1, Director of Athletics Geri Knortz announced today. Dulude, whose primary efforts will focus on compliance, finance and sport supervision, served as the coordinator of athletic facilities and student workers since returning to her alma mater at the beginning of the 2010-11 school year. She also becomes the College's Senior Woman Administrator.

"I am very excited and thankful for the opportunity to continue my career at Saint Michael's in a different capacity," said Dulude, a former standout softball player for the Purple Knights who will continue to serve as an assistant softball coach. "I look forward to working with coaches and administration on enhancing our current compliance practices and facilitating a financial model that adapts to the varying needs of both our full-time and part-time staff members."

Dulude graduated from Saint Michael's cum laude with a bachelor's degree in economics, compiling a 3.57 grade-point average, before earning her master’s degree in sports leadership from Northeastern University in 2010, accumulating a perfect 4.0 GPA. As an undergraduate at Saint Michael's, Dulude was lauded as the NCAA Division II Northeast Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2007, becoming one of eight finalists for the national honor. She was also the Northeast-10 Conference Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year as a senior, when she was selected as the College's NCAA Woman of the Year nominee. During her final year, Dulude earned the institution's Victor V. LeMieux '36 Award, presented to an individual who demonstrates a high level of leadership and loyalty to his or her sport.

"In the short time that Meggan has been with us in the capacity of coordinator of athletic facilities and student workers, she has proven herself as a talented administrator who works tirelessly to support the athletics operations," said Knortz. "I am confident that she will excel in her new role."

Dulude, who is also an active member of the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA), earned a vast amount of athletic accolades as an undergraduate. She was a two-time NE-10 Pitcher of the Year and all-conference first team selection, the 2007 Daktronics Division II Northeast Region Pitcher of the Year, the 2007 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division II Pitcher of the Year, and the 2004 NE-10 Freshman of the Year. Dulude still holds virtually every Saint Michael's pitching record, having posted a 63-36 mark, 804 strikeouts and 31 shutouts. She earned 22 of the Purple Knights' 25 triumphs in their record-setting 2005 campaign, when they finished third in the NE-10 Tournament during the program's first postseason appearance.
