New athletic director for Christendom

Christendom College in Front Royal has hired Patrick Quest (Christendom '08) as athletic director. Quest will oversee all intercollegiate and club sports teams and athletic events.

"It's great to welcome Patrick Quest back to Christendom," said Chris Vander Woude, dean of student life. "The experience and enthusiasm that Patrick brings to the position will be a huge positive for both the student-athletes and the entire campus community."

A basketball star while at Christendom, Quest was awarded the inaugural Pate Quest Athletic Leadership Award for outstanding leadership by a scholar-athlete. After earning his bachelor's in history, Quest served as athletic director of St. John Academy in McLean. He also coached basketball for St. John and Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington.

Quest replaces Josh Petersen who will continue at Christendom as head women's volleyball coach.
