Jonathan Law High School Has A New Athletic Director

Milford has hired Wallingford's athletic director.

The Wallingford school district is looking for two new athletic directors for its high schools after V.J. Sarullo decided to leave his position as AD at Sheehan for the same post at Jonathan Law in Milford on July 1.

Earlier, Amy Labas left her position as Lyman Hall athletic director to become Coordinator of Athletics and Extra-Curricular Activities for Plainville Community Schools,according to the Meriden Record-Journal.

Sarullo, 35, was at Sheehan for five years and also served as comptroller in addition to his athletic director responsibilities.

"My sole responsibility will be athletics, so I can concentrate on that," Sarullo told Joe Morelli of the New Haven Register and GameTimeCT.com. "I'm also a lifelong Milford resident and it's 5 minutes door to door. It was a unique opportunity and tough to turn down."

Sarullo also said that he will handle the athletic director responsibilities at both schools (Sheehan and Law) until a replacement is found, which he expects to be by late July or early August, according to the Register.

Sarullo told Morelli that while there were several athletic director openings throughout the Southern Connecticut Conference, Law was the only one he applied for.

"I'm sad to leave Sheehan," Sarullo told Morelli. "It's a great place with a lot of great people. I hope to take my great experiences and knowledge and build a program over there (at Law)."

Labas, 38, was at Lyman Hall for four years and told the Record-Journal that leaving the school was a very difficult decision.

"I became part of the Lyman Hall family and I always will be," Labas told the Record-Journal. "I met a lot of great people and coaches during my time. But this was a position I couldn’t turn down."
