Most importantly, she is a great person and that, coupled with her outstanding experience, will be of great benefit to our student-athletes. I am thrilled to be working alongside her.”

“This is a dream come true, to be able to rejoin the UConn family and be back in my home state,” says Crevoiserat. “I’m honored and excited to work in such an amazing program and I’m looking forward to continuing the excellence that has been put into place.”

One of the most accomplished runners to come out of the State of Connecticut, Crevoiserat led the 2012 UConn cross country team to finish eighth in the country overall in addition to its first appearance in the NCAA Championship. She is a three-time All-American who advanced to the NCAA Nationals as well as a Big East and NCAA Regional qualifier in cross country.
