Britanny Kochenderfer, athletics program assistant, is moving from a nine-month position to a 12-month position. Britanny will provide support to both Sydney and Quinn as needed, and will help to manage Sparks memberships as we pivot to re-opening the facility to the community. In addition, she will provide support to sports camps and facility rentals during the summer months.
