Quinnipiac director of athletics and recreation Jack McDonald has been named by the NCAA Championship Cabinet to the Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee for a four-year term beginning Sept. 1, 1998. He replaces outgoing committee member Bob DeGregorio, the athletic director at Merrimack.
McDonald, who spearheaded the formation of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference’s ice hockey league, founded both the Denver and Quinnipiac Cup holiday tournaments, and was a member of the NCAA Western Region ranking committee from 1992-94. He has also guided Quinnipiac through its transition to Division I status.
“I am very excited to be named to this prestigious committee. The nomination is great for Quinnipiac College and the MAAC hockey league as we begin our first year of Division I competition,” said McDonald.
