In his first full year as Director of Athletics at Wells, Borsz led a department that saw significant growth, both athletically and academically. Under his guidance and direction, the department has expanded to include men's and women's volleyball while the 2012-13 athletic season saw the highest incoming amount of freshmen in department history. Academically, a school-record 37 student-athletes were tabbed as North Eastern Athletic Conference Scholar-Athetes in 2012-13.
Additionally, Borsz has made numerous improvements to athletic facilities and has spearheaded an extensive fundraising campaign that has led to newly-installed permanent scoreboards at outdoor facilities, new locker room spaces for home and visiting teams and improvements to the college's fitness center.
Following a vote of his peers, Borsz was selected as the NEAC Treasurer and has earned placement on the NEAC Board of Athletic Directors' Executive Committee. As one of four administrators on the committee, Borsz will oversee the conference's finances and work in conjunction with the committee to guide a conference currently in a stage of growth. Borsz also serves on the NEAC Strategic Planning Committe and sub-committees for marketing as well as finance for the conference.
Prior to joining the Express, Borsz worked in several roles at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Most recently, he served for three years as the Assistant Athletics Director and Recruiting Coordinator where he was responsible for coordinating the recruiting efforts for all 21 NCAA Division III varsity programs. He also acted as the athletics liaison for several departments on campus, including admissions, financial aid, provost, business, campus housing, orientation, first year experience and study abroad.
He also represented the Cardinals as a member of several committees, including the Academic Probation Appeals committee, the Global Education committee and the university's First Year Retention Experience program.
Alongside his recruiting responsibilities, Borsz also managed all facilities for varsity, club and intramural sports and provided game management for several sports and events, including DC Special Olympics and the NCAA Women's Lacrosse First Round Tournament. Borsz also assisted in the marketing of football games and was directly responsible for all aspects of the department’s annual alumni golf tournament fundraiser.
Borsz joined Catholic in July of 2006, serving as both an admissions counselor and an assistant lacrosse coach before his promotion to Assistant Athletics Director in 2008.
