"We are excited about her ability to lead our program, to serve as an advocate for athletes and athletics, and to promote the quality of the student-athlete experence at a D-I institution like IPFW."
Hartley Hutton said: "I am both excited and humbled to be chosen for this position. I am looking forward to helping this department continue to move forward, both academically and athletically. My immediate priority will be to continue to build relationships with our fans and donors, and grow the base of support."
