Head Coach Michelle Morgan
Entering her 25th season at Amherst and 13th year at the helm of the women's
golf team, head coach Michelle Morgan - along with former head coach Tracy Mehr - has helped mold the Jeffs into one of the finest Division III programs in the
nation, guiding the team to 10 Massachusetts State Championships, five New
England Championships and a Division II-III National Championship in 1990.
Along the way, Amherst teams have produced eight All-Americans, three
Academic All-Americans, six NCAA Open Championship qualifiers and an
unprecedented three-time Division III National Champion in Amy Hooks '91.
Morgan was a standout field hockey, basketball and softball player at the
Colorado Women's College before graduating in 1974. She later gained valuable
experience as a teaching assistant and three-sport coach at nearby Smith
College, earning a master's degree in Physical Education in 1976. After
a brief stint as the Director of Athletics at the Vail Deane School in
Hillside, New Jersey, Morgan moved to Amherst in 1978 and has since coached
women's squash, basketball, lacrosse and soccer in addition to golf. Morgan
also works as a professor of physical education and athletics and currently
serves as the athletic department's Senior Women's Administrator.
Under her guidance, the women's golf team has qualified for the last two NCAA Championship Tournaments, placing third as a team in the spring of 2002. Morgan also led the women's soccer team to the NCAA Championship game in 2001, earning NSCAA/Adidas New England Coach of the Year honors along the way.
