Deptford Twp. – The Gloucester County College Roadrunners captured another national title as Under Armour named Ron Case the 2013 Athletic Director of the Year for two-year colleges.

The only four-time winner in the award program’s 15-year history, Case was lauded at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics James J. Corbett Awards Luncheon held June 15 in Orlando, Fla. He previously attained this accolade in 2003, 2006 and 2009.

During his 22-year tenure at GCC, the Roadrunners have won 25 NJCAA Championship titles and achieved 60 top-three national finishes. The College earned its fourth-consecutive NATYCAA Cup in 2013 for the best Non-Scholarship NJCAA program in the country. Additionally, the College has won 11 CAANJ Cups for possessing the best overall two-year collegiate sports program in the state of New Jersey.

Case’s career reached its culmination this year when GCC received the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup — the highest honor an athletic program can attain — during the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics conference. GCC celebrated alongside Stanford University (Division I), Grand Canyon (Division II), Williams College (Division III) and Oklahoma Baptist (NAIA).

“This is a great honor both personally and professionally, and for Gloucester County College, to maintain a reputation of excellence nationwide,” said Case. “We’re proud to have cultivated a high level of respect for both our college and our talented student athletes from within the community. We possess a national reputation of which people on a local level might not even be aware.”

            “Ron Case is an asset to Gloucester County College and its student athletes,” said GCC President Frederick Keating. “His selection of coaches, staff and athletic programming is why the College’s athletic department is revered nationwide, and our students have gone on to have successful careers at four-year universities.”

Case was inducted into the Gloucester County Sports Hall of Fame in 2009. He also received the highest NATYCAA honor, the L. William Miller Award in 2002, the CAANJ Garden State Award in 2007 and GCC’s Medallion Award for Service to the College and Community in 2007.

Gloucester County College’s 250-acre campus is located on Tanyard Road in Deptford, just off Exit 56 of Route 55.
