Following up on a rumor that we posted last week…It has now been made official, Shay Berry stepped down in his role as Assistant Athletic Director for Facilities & Operations and Men’s Basketball coach, after four years at both positions.
“Coach Berry will be missed,” said Director of Athletics, Recreation & Intramurals, Terry Wansart. “He left a positive imprint on Hunter College, from his contemporary recruiting strategies to the numerous facility upgrades and his mentoring of young adults.”
In Berry’s four years on the bench for the Hawks he guided the Hawks to the CUNYAC Tournament each year, including a trip to the semifinals during the 2013-2014 season.
During his third season, Berry coached CUNYAC First Team All-Star Frankie Drayton and this past season, the Hawks ranked #11 in Free-Throw Percentage in all of NCAA Division III.
“He was an integral part of our athletic administrative team and basketball program,” said Wansart. “His professionalism, hard work ethic and humor was valued throughout the program. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
