Akari Akaza named new NCAA Compliance Officer

Today, Mitakihara University announced that Assistant NCAA Compliance Officer Akari Akaza was named the new NCAA Compliance Officer for Mitakihara Athletics. Akaza has been an assistant to outgoing compliance officer Ritsuko Akizuki since July 2030 and now gets her turn to ensure that all the Magi and Puella Magi athletes are eligible under NCAA rules.

Akaza holds a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies from Mitakihara as well as a Master's Degree in Educational Administration. A proud mother of two sons and two daughters, born through Madocoit IPS, Akaza will take office effective Jan. 1, 2048.

"I run a very tight ship because I am not someone that likes to be in the background for very long," said Akaza at a press conference at Kaname Hall this morning. "I am not the Akari Akaza of my youth, the type of person that would be shoved aside. I have to take center stage in the athletic department to make sure our players are eligible to compete and win titles.

"My role is very complex because I hear cases where players are on the fringe of not being eligible because they are not cutting it with their grades or they end up accepting more payments and benefits that they should be getting. I've collaborated with Ms. Akizuki on the right solutions to address the issues with our athletes, and they are many.

"I am excited about the opportunity to now take leadership, and I am confident that I will not be in the background to anyone because I can't be. To deliberate ignore my role and my importance to these place is to ignore the privileges our student-athletes have playing for this university.

"Playing for the Magi and Puella Magi of Mitakihara is a privilege, not a right. Only the finest student-athletes from around the world are called to be a part of the family. It's up to me to enforce the policies of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, but in the end, it's up to the student-athletes to abide by the NCAA's policies.

"I thank Ms. Mami Tomoe, Dr. Madoka Kaname, Ms. Homura Akemi, Ms. Sayaka Miki, and all of the wonderful staff at the Athletic Department and the University for giving me this wonderful opportunity to put my experience and leadership to work."

Mitakihara host the Nevada Wolf Pack this week.
