Joshua LaVeck is entering his first year as the Director of Athletic Communications, after serving the past year as the Assistant Director through the 2018-19 academic year.
He serves as the lead on all game-day operations, live-video streaming, social media, website maintenance, graphic design, video production, and more.
LaVeck comes to Marymount after spending two years as the Production Coordinator for The AGAM Group in Elkridge, Md. Before working at AGAM, he spent two years as the Assistant Sports Information Director at Salisbury University, his alma mater.
Before moving into the Assistant SID position, LaVeck spent two years as a Graduate Assistant for the Sea Gulls. He also attended Salisbury for his undergraduate studies, including working in the Sports Information office for three years. He graduated in 2012 with a degree in Communication Arts and a minor in Psychology, before completing Graduate School in 2014 with a Masters in Post-secondary Education.
At Salisbury, he spent time as the primary contact for men’s lacrosse, football, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s track & field, women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s soccer, and men’s and women’s swimming. He covered NCAA tournament runs with men’s lacrosse, men’s basketball, and men’s and women’s track & field.
His work with men’s lacrosse included four NCAA tournament runs, including two trips to the NCAA Division III National Championship game, with one of those trips culminating in the program’s 10th national title in 2012. He helped cover the program’s 11th national championship in 2016, as well.
He also covered the men’s track & field team, when the team traveled to the Division III national championships and finished fourth overall in the country and brought home two individual national titles.
Along with tournament runs with the team’s he specifically covered, LaVeck also helped oversee NCAA tournament weekends and Capital Athletic Conference tournament weekends hosted by Salisbury for any of the Gulls’ 21 varsity sports.
LaVeck spearheaded the growth of the Sea Gull Sports Network’s coverage of Salisbury’s athletic events. He helped build the department into a team of 25-30 broadcasters and camera operators, while covering all of the Sea Gulls’ home events with live video streams. The department produced highlight videos that were released after each home game, as well.
Away from work, LaVeck is a huge Baltimore sports fan of the Orioles and Ravens. He also enjoys traveling, camping, and spending time with family and friends.
