UAF announced via a press release Friday afternoon that four finalists for the next Athletic Director would be visiting the campus this week for face-to-face meetings and interviews on April 26, 27, 28, and 30. Each candidate will also host a virtual 30-minute public forum live on the UAF website.

The first event was the 200-yard freestyle relay in which Oda Bygdnes, Shannon McCallum, Lainey Lioi and Whitney McArthur represented UAF. That group finished in 6th place with a time of 1:40.83.

Two weeks after sweeping Northwest Nazarene University, UAF split the weekend series with NNU with a loss on Friday and a win on Saturday. The ‘Nooks are now 5-4 on the season.

It was an exciting trip to get there. Friday’s match at UAF was a five-set thriller the Nanooks emerged on top from. UAF dropped the first set, won two straight, lost the fourth, but pulled out the victory in the decisive fifth set.
