CRETE, Neb. (AP) — An athletic department official from Washburn University in Topeka has been named athletic director at Doane College in Crete.

Doane announced Friday the appointment of Jill McCartney as its new athletic director. She will oversee intercollegiate athletics for Doane’ 21 athletics teams.

Since 2009, McCartney has worked as the assistant athletic director for compliance and academics at Washburn.

Doane President Jacque Carter says McCartney has an “exceptional track record as an educator, coach and administrator.”

She holds a doctorate in education from Capella University, a master’s in English literature from the University of Arizona and a bachelor’s in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

McCartney will be the only female athletic director in the Great Plains Athletic Conference.
