Ms. Frances Lyons Named Regis’s First Full-Time Athletic Director

Regis is excited to announce that Ms. Frances Lyons will be joining our community as the school's first full-time Athletic Director.

With more than 10 years of experience in athletic administration and coaching, Ms. Lyons has proven herself as a dynamic leader. Most recently, she served as the Director of Athletics and Advisor at Stuart Country Day School in Princeton, N.J. Prior to that, Ms. Lyons was the Associate Director of Athletics at the Brearley School. Additionally, her experience as a Field House Manager and Youth Sports Leagues Manager at Asphalt Green showcased her ability to oversee large-scale sports programs and facilities.

"Frances brings an impressive background in athletic administration and coaching, and we are thrilled to have her join our team," said Principal Mr. Charlie Heintz. "Frances is passionate about creating a positive and inclusive environment for all student-athletes, a value that aligns perfectly with our mission at Regis."

Ms. Lyons will begin in the role in August.

"I am thrilled to join the Regis community as the next Athletic Director and am eager to embark on this exciting journey," said Ms. Lyons. "With deep appreciation for the rich history and traditions of Regis, I am determined to build upon the strong foundation already in place. My goal is to develop a program that not only nurtures athletic talent but also instills a sense of excellence and provides an exceptional experience for all student-athletes, fostering a culture of perseverance, care, sportsmanship, belonging, and overall development. I look forward to working closely with our student-athletes, coaches, and the entire Regis community to create an environment where everyone can thrive. Go Regis!"

Previously, the duties of Athletic Director were fulfilled by a member of the faculty, most recently physical education teacher Mr. Kevin Cullen. In her role as the full-time Athletic Director, Ms. Lyons will be supported by Mr. Cullen and Mr. Dwayne Edwards, especially in the ways that her role overlaps with the Physical Education Department.

"I am especially grateful to Kevin for his many years as Athletic Director, managing well the many tasks required of the constantly growing role while also teaching and coaching," said Mr. Heintz.
