ATLANTA – Mary McElroy, beginning her third year as a member of Georgia Tech’s athletics administration, has been elevated to associate director of athletics and senior woman administrator, director of athletics Dave Braine announced Tuesday.
McElroy has spent the past two years overseeing Tech’s NCAA Compliance program, and was named Assistant Director of Athletics in August, 2000. She replaces Kathy Noble, who left the Tech program to pursue other opportunities.
At the same time, Jennifer Condaras, who served as assistant director of compliance the past two years, has been promoted to director of compliance. Monique Holland, an assistant women’s basketball coach since 1996, becomes assistant director of compliance.
“Mary has done a tremendous job over the past two years getting our compliance program in top shape, and she deserves this opportunity,” said Braine. “She’s extremely conscientious and is on top of everything. She’ll do a fine job in her new role. And our compliance department is left in very good hands with Jennifer and Monique working together. Both are very well thought of throughout the athletics department here.”
McElroy previously spent four years at the U.S. Naval Academy, including three with the Naval Academy Athletic Association as Senior Woman Administrator and Assistant Athletic Director for NCAA Compliance. She directed NCAA compliance for 29 varsity sports while directly overseeing the sports of women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s swimming and men’s tennis. She also served one year as the Naval Academy’s Director of Alumni Services.
A native of Great Mills, Md., McElroy earned a B.S. degree from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1987 and then served as a supply officer in the U.S. Marine Corps for five years, attaining the rank of Captain. She completed a master’s degree in 2000 at Georgia Tech while working full-time at the Athletic Association.
She is married to Terry McElroy and the couple has two sons, Darrin and Austin.
Condaras, from Charleston W.Va., has served as assistant director of compliance under McElroy since July of 1999. She served as a graduate assistant in the compliance office at West Virginia University from June of 1997 until her appointment at Tech.
A Cum Laude graduate with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from West Virginia in 1996, Condaras went on to earn a master’s degree in sport management in 1999. She also worked for a year as an accounting clerk for American Occupational Health Management before entering the field of college athletics.
Holland spent five seasons on the women’s basketball staff at Tech under head coach Agnus Berenato, coaching the Yellow Jackets’ guards in addition to other administrative duties.
She enjoyed a successful basketball career at Alabama State, where she earned Academic all-America honors as well as leading her team in scoring (17 points per game), assists, steals and free throws as a senior. Holland graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in therapeutic recreation in 1996, and is currently completing her requirements for a master’s in sports administration from Georgia State.
