Anthony Macapugay joined SJC Brooklyn in 2008 and as the program’s first-and-only full-time SID, however, his involvement with the Bears traces back to as early 2001 where he began as a statistician and public address announcer for the men's and women's basketball teams.
He also serves as sport administrator for the women’s basketball and softball teams, providing oversight and guidance for each program to help ensure their continued success in line with the Department’s and College’s goals and mission.
As Manager of Athletic Communications, he is primarily responsible for all the media relations and communication efforts for the Bears’ 14 intercollegiate varsity sports, overseeing the content creation for the department website, social media accounts, and print. Macapugay has helped place student-athletes in the New York Times, Daily News, Sports Illustrated, and Newsweek. In 2015 and 2016, he promoted the selection of SJC Brooklyn’s first two College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-Americans.
A former web developer and corporate intranet manager, Macapugay spearheaded four redesigns of the athletic department’s website, SJCBears.com. He's grown the SJCBears social media presence to over 3000 combined followers for an institution with one of the smallest enrollments in the entire NCAA.
Arriving in Clinton Hill in the first year of the Division III provisional process, the Brooklyn native was heavily involved in assisting the department to achieve full membership on schedule in 2011. He later helped in the planning for The Hill Center—the college’s first on-campus athletic facility—assisting with many of the design elements for the state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot facility which opened its doors in 2014.
Through his internship program instituted in 2009, he has helped start the careers of several former interns who currently hold head or assistant positions in sports information/athletic communications at all levels of the NCAA.
