Announcing Athletic Director Adam Lonon

Current Associate Athletic Director will lead Trinity's athletic programs effective July 1, 2024
Trinity Episcopal School is pleased to announce the hiring of its next Athletic Director — current Associate Athletic Director Adam Lonon — to lead the school’s athletic programs effective July 1, 2024. 

Over the past seven years at Trinity, Lonon has served Titan Athletics in a broad range of capacities including — program head for varsity girls basketball and golf, scheduling and site operations, and evolving the audio-visual media program into a series of content channels viewed by thousands of supporters across Titan Nation. 

“Through each phase of his career here, Adam has met every challenge with characteristic enthusiasm and grace, always with an eye toward the greater needs of the school and creating opportunities for student engagement,” said Head of School Rob Short in a letter to the Trinity community. ”During the difficult years of the pandemic, Adam and the whole department rose to the challenge of reinventing how we compete and grow through athletics always with a team-oriented approach.”

A hall-of-fame varsity athlete at The Steward School and record-holding basketball player at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), Lonon’s unique perspective will continue to foster high expectations for himself, student-athletes, coaches and the entire Trinity community. 

“I am excited to work with our administration and to use my background in athletics to help guide our students and coaches on their athletic journeys,” says Lonon. “Through community engagement and wellness, my goal is to help our athletes, parents, and coaches navigate the current landscape of high-school athletics. I look forward to continuing a culture at Trinity Episcopal School where people matter and the program is an extension of our mission and values.”

Lonon credits his passion and love for athletic administration to support and leadership from strong mentors along the way: former Steward School AD Janet Rice; current Steward School AD; Bruce Secrest, and current Trinity Episcopal School AD Anna Prillaman. “Witnessing their insights into leading successful athletics programs with integrity and character while handling complex situations with grace and humility has been invaluable,” he said.

Lonon will succeed Prillaman, who concludes her five-year tenure as director in June.  “Anna Prillaman has brought a level of excellence and excitement around athletics at Trinity,” said Lonon. “I am ecstatic for the opportunity to help continue the culture and Titan traditions in place while creating even more experiences for the development and success of Trinity Athletics.”

Says Lonon, “I am also eager about the prospect of continuing to work closely with our dedicated coaching staff, talented student-athletes, and supportive community to drive ‘Ever Onward’ for Trinity's athletic programs.”
