Caltech Brings Aboard Three New Staffers
PASADENA, Calif. – The Caltech department of Athletics,

to its administrative team.
“This department supports a wide range of activities. The addition of these three individuals to our staff will help us in many different aspects in assisting those people. Each of them brings different strengths and abilities that will balance our team,” athletics director Betsy Mitchell said.

She also has three years of administrative experience at Vassar College (NY) where she spent two years as the recipient of an NCAA Division III ethnic minority and women’s internship grant. Duties included serving as the assistant women’s basketball coach. That opportunity led her to being named the head coach of the women’s basketball program as well as the assistant athletic director.
Mason received her bachelor’s degree from Butler University in May of 2004. She also competed as a member of the Bulldogs basketball team during her time at the Indianapolis, IN school.
She earned her master’s degree in sports management from California University (PA) in May of 2007. She is currently pursuing her Ed.D.degree from Northcentral University in Scottsdale, AZ.

The native of Dowagiac, MI earned her bachelor’s of science degree in exercise science from Western Michigan University in 2000. Two years later, Lillie earned a master’s degree in physical education from the university.
Lillie culminated her academic endeavors in 2007 when she received her doctorate degree in exercise and sports science from the University of Utah with a focus in exercise physiology and an emphasis in health promotion and education.
