GGC Athletic Director, Dr. Darin Wilson, Talks Sports, 10/29/12

At the Monday, Oct. 29, meeting of the Rotary Club of Lawrenceville, the Athletic Director at Georgia Gwinnett College, Dr. Darin Wilson, brought the group up to date on the current athletic activities at GGC as well as plans for the future.  Dr. Wilson was hired to create a program from scratch and asserted that that offered particular challenges as well as advantages.  He has hired coaches for soccer, tennis, and baseball who have all worked together to determine the goals and mission of the teams.  Student recruiting has been heavily from the Gwinnett County area, and teams have been very successful so far.  He described the plans for the new sports complex located on Collins Hill Road.  The teams are not in a conference right now but are looking to find the best fit.  He and his coaches and teams aspire to be a model athletic program in the country.
