KRISTY HARTMAN MUMMA RESIGNS AS HEAD FIELD HOCKEY COACH
Hartman Mumma had just completed her sixth season at UMBC, during which time she compiled a career record of 19-71. She has been the program’s only head coach since it returned to the varsity level in 2000, overseeing its jump from the Northeast Conference to the much more competitive America East. Her best season at the helm was 2002, when the team posted a 6-10 overall record, including 5-7 in the Northeast Conference, narrowly missing postseason play.
A former member of the Retriever club field hockey team as a student at UMBC, Hartman Mumma has also overseen strong academic success on the field hockey team, as a total of 21 of her athletes have been selected to the National Field Hockey Coaches’ Association (NFHCA) National Academic Squad for maintaining a grade-point average of 3.3 or higher. In addition, the Retrievers earned the National Academic Team Award in 2004 for maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA. This past season, three field hockey players were named to the inaugural America East All-Academic squad, as well.
“We’re indebted to Coach Hartman for her contributions and all she’s done to the program,” Brown said. “She gave the program a great start through her hard work and recruiting of excellent student-athletes that fit well into the UMBC profile.”
A national search for her successor will begin immediately.
