BOULDER, CO. — A Niles native and Brandywine alumnus has been awarded with the highest honor in his field of expertise.

Associate Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Adam Ringler has earned the title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach from the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association.

This is the highest honor that can be achieved in the Strength and Conditioning coaching profession. It represents professionalism, knowledge, experience, expertise, and longevity in the field.

Adam Ringler is in his fifth year as a member of the University of Colorado’s athletic department, his first year as an assistant director of strength and conditioning for volleyball and women’s basketball.

Ringler earned his bachelor and master’s degrees in Kinesiology from Michigan State University where he also served as a volunteer and graduate assistant coach from 2006-10. He worked closely with the volleyball team and directly oversaw the strength and conditioning program for wrestling, helping the squad place six NCAA qualifiers and awarding one All-American.
