Christy Morgan is in her third season as the associate head field hockey coach at Wake Forest. She rejoins the collegiate coaching ranks after stints as a head coach at James Madison from 1991-2000 and at Davidson from 2001-02.
While at James Madison, Morgan guided the Dukes to their only NCAA Field Hockey Championship in 1994. In addition, she helped JMU reach the NCAA Tournament five times, including back-to-back Final Fours (1994-95). Morgan coached 16 All-Americans and 31 Academic All-Americans at James Madison, as well.
Before winning a National Championship as a coach, Morgan also won three consecutive NCAA National Championships as a player at Old Dominion from 1982-84. She earned the Honda Broderick Award for the nation's best field hockey player once. Morgan was also named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team all four of her years as a player. Since her time as a player, she has been inducted into the ODU, JMU and USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame.
"Wake Forest is very fortunate to be able to attract a coach like Christy Morgan. She will enhance every aspect of our program, and she will help provide an excellent overall experience for our student-athletes," said Averill. "Her impressive resume is equaled by her character, contagious attitude and dynamic coaching style. Having won a national championship as a coach, she understands both the technical and tactical demands that it takes to reach our expectations."
In addition to her collegiate playing career, Morgan also was a member of the U.S. National Field Hockey Team from 1982-90, played for the U.S. World Cup Team in 1983 and 1986 and was an Olympian in 1988.
Since leaving Davidson in 2002, Morgan has remained very active in the game of field hockey. Since 1994, she has owned CirclePlay Inc. where she hosts field hockey camps and clinics and does motivational speaking. CirclePlay operates summer and preseason camps that teach fundamentals, cutting edge concepts and field hockey game strategies.
