LA GRANDE, Ore. — Oregon Tech AD Michael Schell is the Cascade Collegiate Conference Athletic Director of the Year.

The conference announced Thursday that Schell is the winner of the award after OIT won a national championship in men’s basketball and hosted the conference track and field championships, among other accolades.

Schell was also recognized for OIT’s academic achievements, as Tech student-athletes combined for a 3.15 GPA with 10 of the 11 varsity teams meeting NAIA Team Academic Honors.

The new basketball floor at Danny Miles Court was also a reason, as the conference acknowledged how tough funds are for public institutions and gave Schell credit for fundraising to achieve the new court.
