PAST ARTICLES
Samantha (Sam) Hart, a Fairleigh Dickinson graduate and former member of the Knights’ bowling team, has recently joined the
National Ten Pin Coaches Association (NTCA) communications team.

Hart will handle the organization’s social media outlets and assist with tournament promotion and feature writing, especially
interesting stories about D-II and D-III student-athletes or coaches.  The North Greenbush, N.Y. native was a communications and
marketing major at FDU, graduating in the spring, 2020.

Hart was a key member of the Knight bowling teams, earning a host of awards during her career. An honor student, she was
honored several times by the Northeastern Conference and was the NEC champion her freshman year. She won the FDU team’s
sportsmanship award twice and also claimed the program’s award for having the team’s highest grade point average, a 3.9.   Hart’
s older sister, Brittany, bowled for LIU-Brooklyn.

Sam will team with Rod Williamson, the former Vanderbilt communications director, who will be producing feature stories and/or
columns several times a month and is on the lookout for compelling stories about D-I student-athletes and coaches.  

Their goal is to tell some of the interesting stories about NCAA bowling that otherwise may have passed by with little or no notice.  
What makes this bowler – or coach – different from other bowlers?  Articles will appear on the NTCA’s web page
ncaawomensbowling.com) and the NTCA’s Facebook (@NTCAbowling), Twitter (@TheNTCA), and Instagram (@the_ntca) pages.
“We are not necessarily looking for stories about the best bowlers,” Williamson says. “We want good human interest stories about
current or former NCAA bowlers.  We need the assistance of the coaches to bring some of these stories to light.”
