The athletics department will see many changes in the upcoming academic school year.

The athletics department will soon have more changes in its leadership. 

Laura Gill, deputy athletic director, will leave her position this summer to serve as the director of athletics at the Winchester Thurston School in Pittsburgh. 

“I’ve established great relationships with student-athletes, great relationships with coaches and other members of the Lab community,” Ms. Gill said. “I’ve just had a lot of fun and I am going to miss this place and all of the laughs so much.”

Physical education teacher and head soccer coach Joshua Potter has been appointed to the new position of assistant athletic director. Mr. Potter will take on this new role in May after his parental leave. 

His job will mainly involve scheduling, communicating with teams and hiring and evaluating coaches. 

“He understands what an athletic department should look like,” Matt Manley, director of athletics, said. “He particularly understands what Lab is, what Lab is like, and what our students are like.”
