— Bev Lewis, who has spent 32 years as a coach and athletics administrator at the University of Arkansas, announced Monday she will retire in June.

Lewis was the school's women's athletics director for 19 years until the men's and women's athletics departments merged in 2007. She has since served as an executive associate athletics director, handling the administrator position for 10 of the school's 19 sports.

Lewis is the school's former women's cross country and track & field coach. She won the school's first conference championship in a women's sport during the 1988 cross country season and she was a three-time Southwest Conference coach of the year in the 1980s.

The Bev Lewis Center was opened on the UA campus in 2003, housing administrative offices and workout facilities for female student-athletes. Lewis was a 1998 inductee into the University of Arkansas Hall of Honor and has served on multiple NCAA committees.
