LYNDONVILLE, Vt. – Director of Athletics Chris Ummer announces the resignation of Morgan Crespo, Head Coach of the Women’s Soccer team and Co-Head Coach of the Men’s and Women’s Track & Field program. Crespo also served as the Administrative Assistant in the Health and Counseling Center at Lyndon State College.
“Morgan has been excellent role model for our student-athletes and will be sincerely missed,” said Ummer. “Her ability to connect with student-athletes is exceptional; and her willingness to assist and help out whenever and wherever possible will be hard to replace. We wish her and her family the best of luck in the future.”
Crespo joined the Hornet family in 2014 as an assistant coach for the women’s soccer team, a role she held for two seasons before earning the Head Coach position. Morgan also led the track and field team through the transition from club to varsity status, and produced a regional finalist (Abby Salvadore ’19) in the women’s javelin in the first year of NCAA competition.
“It has been an honor to coach such quality young women and men over the past three years as an assistant and head coach,” said Crespo. “I would like to thank Chris Ummer and Kate Roy for all their support and for the opportunity they both have given me to start my collegiate coaching career. I will forever be grateful for the relationships that I’ve made and everything that I’ve learned along the way,” she continued. “All three teams have very talented first-year classes coming in, and with the leadership of the upperclassmen I’m confident that each of the teams will be playoff contenders within the conference.”
Crespo was a standout soccer student-athlete for both Southern Maine Community College and New Hampshire Technical Institute where she earned numerous awards and honors. Crespo graduated from Southern Maine Community College in 2012 with an Associates of Applied Science and completed her Bachelors’ of Arts degree from Lyndon in December of 2015. She was the head girls soccer coach at Esparto High School in Esparto, California in 2013. Under her leadership, Esparto won the 2013 conference title.
