MEDIA, Pa. -- Penn State Brandywine Chancellor Dr. Kristin Woolever announced that Bobbi Caprice has officially be selected as the campus' director of athletics, effective Monday, Nov. 4.
Since graduating from Brandywine in 2013, Caprice has been a member of the athletic staff. For the last three years, she has served as Brandywine's assistant athletic director.
"I'm extremely excited and honored to be appointed athletic director at the campus that has meant so much to me personally for the past nine years. I'm so proud to be part of a program where the No. 1 priority is to ensure our student-athletes are succeeding in the classroom and have the tools they need to do well in college and beyond," said Caprice.
Caprice began her tenure as the athletic recruiting coordinator, while also overseeing the fitness center, student workers and the intramural program. Since becoming a full-time member of the staff, Caprice has helped the department add the Brandywine Games (athletics' annual kickoff picnic), a student-athlete recruit dinner, academic monitoring for all student-athletes and freshman seminar.
She has also aided the Brandywine coaching staff in recruiting over 200 student-athletes during the last five years. This year, the Brandywine athletic department boasts the biggest department in its history with over 170 student-athletes competing on 16 varsity sports.
As a student-athlete, Caprice was a member of the women's basketball, volleyball and cross country teams. A 1,000-point scorer for the women's basketball team, Caprice was the recipient of the John S. Egli Award during her senior year as the top student-athlete in the Penn State University Athletic Conference.
Caprice was a member of 2010-11 conference champion women's basketball team. She served as an assistant coach during Brandywine's back-to-back women's basketball championships in 2016-17 and 2017-18, while also assisting the 2015 softball team to its first PSUAC title.
Since Caprice joined the athletics staff in 2013, Brandywine's teams have won 18 PSUAC championships, a conference high during that time. Brandywine athletics has also earned its first three Chancellors' Cups in its history as the top department in the PSUAC (2013-14, 2016-17, 2017-18) during her tenure.
