We had considerable success on the playing fields and in the classroom."
"Frank Pergolizzi has done an outstanding job in managing Husson's athletic department over the past decade," said Husson University President Dr. Robert Clark. "His attention to detail is evident in the great execution of the programs and their growth in both breadth of teams supported and the more than doubling of student participation. His selection of outstanding coaches and their recruiting skills have led to Husson's strength in the North Atlantic Conference and the University's other conference affiliations.
