"This COA partnership with CRN is another step in our continued efforts to promote community college athletics", said COA Commissioner Joanne Fortunato. "It will allow us to showcase our fine programs, extend our marketing and branding to the general citizenry of the state and it fits in nicely with our past electronic efforts, such as television coverage of our COA championships and our website."
