    Goalkeeper Coach

Renee Crawford is in her fifth season as the goalkeeper coach for the Saint Anselm College field hockey team. She also serves as the Executive Director of Budget and Planning on the Hilltop.

Last season in 2016, the Hawks had their best season in program history, posting a 17-5 overall record while going 10-2 in the NE10 to earn the Regular Season Championship. They parlayed that into the program's first NE10 Championship appearance, NCAA Tournament appearance and first showing in the National Semifinals. As a member of the coaching staff, Crawford helped coach three NFHCA All-Americans, including goalkeeper Katherine Sears, who also earned NE10 Goalkeeper of the Year honors. 

Crawford played four years of varsity field hockey and softball at Siena College. She played every single minute in the cage her senior year and was the 2009 NCAA Division I Field Hockey Saves Per Game Champion with 11.94 saves per game. Crawford was an NFHCA Academic All-American all four years of her career, as well as a four-time NEC and MAAC All-Academic Team selection.

Crawford lettered in varsity field hockey for four years and also played softball at Timberlane Regional High School in Plaistow, N.H. She led the Owls to the Class L state title game in three of her four seasons and was named the Class L Player of the Year after her senior campaign. She was selected to play in the U16 National Futures Tournament in Virginia Beach, Va., her junior season and also participated in the 2003 Junior Olympics.

Crawford, who graduated from Siena with a Bachelor's degree in business administration in May 2009 and a Master's degree in accounting in May 2010, currently resides in Bedford, N.H., with her husband, Tyler and twin daughters, Carly and Reese.
