Margot Adams Cosentino is in her third season as the head coach of the Saint Anselm College men's and women's skiing programs in 2018-19 after being appointed to the role on Dec. 14, 2016.
Through two seasons, Cosentino has led both teams to the United States Collegiate Ski & Snowboard Association (USCSA) National Championships. In her first season of 2017, she led the men to their best-ever finish at the national championships with a fifth-place showing and, in 2018, she guided the women to their first appearance at nationals since 2015 where the Hawks finished in a tie for sixth.
Cosentino has coached three USCSA All-Americans in her two seasons. In 2018, senior Taylor Cudhea earned Second Team All-America distinction in the giant slalom after a 10th-place finish. The year before, senior Alex Gowen (seventh) and junior Benji Page (14th) placed in the top 15 in the slalom in Bend, Ore.
Prior to coming to Saint Anselm, Cosentino served as the varsity ski coach at Timberlane Regional High School from 2010-16 and led the boys to a third-place finish at the state meet in 2016. She has also helped instruct and develop young elite ski racers as the U12 ski coach for Waterville Valley BBTS Ski Club since 2014.
A 2008 graduate of Saint Michael's College with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and a minor in business administration, Cosentino was a member of the Purple Knights' ski team for two seasons. After graduation, she went on to earn a Master of Education from Southern New Hampshire University in 2011.
