Pitt-Bradford has named Matthew T. Lovell as its new sports information director.

            Lovell was most recently serving as the acting SID for Mount Aloysius College, which is in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference with Pitt-Bradford.

            “I am very excited to be joining the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford community,” Lovell said. Working athletics has always been a dream for me. Both my wife, Kelsey, and I are happy to be moving to Bradford to join the university and athletic department families.”

            In addition to his duties as acting SID at Mount Aloysius, Lovell has served as director of residence life at the college since 2015, and served as assistant director of residence life for the three years prior to that.

            Before working at Mount Aloysius, Lovell was the resident director and assistant director of residence life at Juniata College, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in history.

            Lovell is currently nearing completion on earning a Master of Science in sport administration from Arkansas State University.

            Athletic director Bret Butler said, “Matt's passion for collegiate athletes and college sports is evident, and our teams and athletes will benefit from his passion. We are excited to have him aboard, and we all look forward to working with him.

            Lovell began his duties Monday. He takes the place of Ryan McDonough, who left in July.

            Pitt-Bradford boasts seven men's and seven women's NCAA Division III athletic teams as well as club-level hockey and esports teams.
