Princeton Day School has named Katie Fay as the school’s new director of athletics and physical education.

School officials announced the decision on March 4.

“With a new facility set to open this fall, the opportunities present today in our athletic program are as rich as at any time in our School’s history. Fay’s charge is broad and comprehensive, spanning everything from incorporating squash and ropes instruction into lower school physical education to ensuring that every college-bound senior who aspires to play sports at the next level is in the strongest position to do so,” said Paul Stellato, the PDS Head of School.

Fay will be replacing director of Upper School Athletics Tim Williams, who will depart PDS at the end of the school year.

“In very short order, we will want to determine conference alignments, review independent school competition at the varsity level, expand wellness programming and offerings across divisions, and, of greatest importance, ensure that the pride we take in the efforts and accomplishments of our athletes is evident throughout the school,” Stellato said. “This work calls for a smart, energetic, disciplined champion. Our School has found her in Katie Fay.

According to PDS officials, Fay joined PDS in August 2009 as the associate director of the Annual Fund. She would go on to rise to director of Alumni Giving, in 2013 she was asked to join the Thrive! Campaign as Director of Capital Giving.
