Athletics Director John Czarnecki Accepts Position at Hartwick College


HAMBURG, N.Y.Hilbert College Director of Intercollegiate Athletics John Czarnecki has accepted the Director of Athletics position at Hartwick College.  Czarnecki’s last day at Hilbert will be July 10.  A national search for his replacement will begin immediately.

“John came to Hilbert with the task of guiding and growing Hilbert’s athletics department,” Hilbert College President Cynthia Zane said.  “His tenure has shown tremendous success both on and off the playing fields and courts, culminating with Hilbert’s first AMCC women’s basketball title and automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.  I have mixed emotions as I wish John success in his new opportunity, but we will also miss his talents here at Hilbert.”
