LCCC hires new athletics director

Laramie County Community College is pleased to announce Scott Noble as its new director of athletics and campus recreation.

Noble comes to LCCC from Cheyenne’s South High School, where he currently serves as that school’s first athletics director.

“We are excited to have Scott join us at LCCC for several reasons,” LCCC Vice President of Student Services Judy Hay said. “His experience as an athletic director at South High School, where he had the opportunity to build that athletic program from the ground up; for his coaching experience at the high school and collegiate levels; for his experience with building and construction of athletic facilities; and his reputation in the community of Cheyenne. Mr. Noble is someone our staff are excited to work with and who we believe is a great match for our programs and our interest in all areas of athletics and recreation.”

Noble will finish the school year at South High School, and he will begin his duties full-time as the LCCC director of athletics and campus recreation on June 8.

“I am personally excited about Mr. Noble because of his interest in seeing both athletics and recreation continue to grow and improve, and his focus on students and the roles athletics and recreation can play in their lives,” Hay said. “He just matches LCCC and where we are going very well.”

Noble joins LCCC as only the second full-time athletics director, following Pete Cautilli, who was in the position the past two years. Prior to that, head basketball coach Jason Ficca split his time between coaching and directing. The move to a full-time director came as the college wanted to see more recreational opportunities for all students and attention to fundraising and facility improvements. All three have seen significant steps forward under Cautilli’s leadership, and Hay has great confidence in Noble to keep the forward momentum going.
