Kyle Gurganious enters his fourth season at the helm of the athletic communications department in 2018-19.
He is the primary contact for all 19 Marymount athletic teams, while running game-day operations, ticket sales, live video streaming, social media, website maintenance, graphic design, video production, and more. He additionally is the lead on the Marymount Athletics Hall of Fame, the All-Athlete Kickoff and the annual Saintspys, an award show produced for the student-athletes at the end of the year that he helped create in 2017.
With the assistance of the Director of Athletics Jamie Reynolds, he took on the school's first athletic brand efforts to create the first official athletic logo in 2017. Following the new brand, he took on his second website redesign with PrestoSports in three years, launching a brand new site at the beginning of 2018. Additionally, at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, he joined forces with SuperFanU to create the school's first athletic application to help boost the fan base and attendance at home events.
When he arrived to Marymount in 2015, his first task was to get live video underway. With a basic setup in the beginning, after three years, he has progressed the broadcast to multiple camera angles, in-game graphics, on-court interviews, commentary, and instant replay.
A social media fanatic himself, he more than tripled the presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the Saints. With the assistance of photographer Chris Radcliffe, he was one of the first Division III social media accounts to utilitize posed 'hero' pictures of student athletes in graphics back in 2015, a fad that most schools have grown to use today.
Beyond his work at Marymount, he finds time to assist other schools in the D.C. Area, working with schools such as Georgetown, Catholic, Gallaudet, and Howard.
Prior to arriving Marymount, he was a graduate assistant for two years at DIII Salisbury University on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. During his time as a Sea Gull, he was the primary contact for men's soccer, men's and women's swimming, women's basketball, and women's lacrosse. He hosted several weekends of NCAA tournaments with soccer, basketball and lacrosse, but his two greatest memories came with an Elite Eight trip with women's basketball in 2015 and a national championship with women's lacrosse in 2014. He graduated with a Master's degree in Post-secondary Education in 2015.
Throughout his two years in Salisbury, he also worked for the local newstation, WMDT 47 ABC, in the sports department, and with the local newspaper, The Daily Times, writing recaps and feature stories on high schools and colleges in the Delmarva area.
Gurganious attended York College of Pennsylvania for his undergraduate studies, graduating in 2013 with a degree in Sport Management. During his tenure as a Spartan, he worked two and a half years in the Sports Information department where he worked with most of the sports, primarily with men's and women's soccer, men's and women's basketball, and men's and women's lacrosse. He put on the headset for soccer and lacrosse on a consistent basis to broadcast for the live online stream, while also having the opportunity to broadcast the men's and women's basketball games on the radio on countless occasions. He also helped create a weekly video show for the athletic website, while producing feature videos for conference championships for men's golf and men's soccer.
While attending YCP, he also worked an internship at Division I Loyola University of Maryland, where he was the primary contact for men's and women's tennis. He also wrote press releases and feature stories for other sports such as basketball and lacrosse. One of his bigger projects while with the Greyhounds was creating a 25-minute season recap for the men's soccer program.
During the summer of 2012 while at York, he became the Baseball Information Assistant with the minor league baseball team, York Revolution. He organized and assisted with statistics and game notes for each game, while interviewing managers, coaches and players, some of which were former major leaguers such as Roger Clemens. He also was color commentary for the radio on all home game broadcasts.
Additionally, he is currently a member of CoSIDA, ECAC-SIDA, and VaSID. He is also the VaSID All-State Coordinator for women's lacrosse.
Outside of work, he enjoys everything sports. He is an avid Philadelphia fan when it comes to the Sixers, Flyers and Phillies. He resides just down the street from campus in Ballston.
