BRIDGEWATER, Va. - Krys Ramsdell, Bridgewater College's first recipient of the NCAA Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant, has been named the Assistant Athletic Director at Fisher College.

Fisher is a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) school in Boston, Mass. that sponsors nine varsity sports. Ramsdell's main responsibilities will include compliance, game operations and the department's Character of Leadership Program.

Ramsdell, a Massachusetts native, was most recently the Coordinator of Student-Athlete Programming and Well-Being at Bridgewater, and an Assistant Field Hockey Coach.

"Krys has been a true asset to our department in her short time at Bridgewater," said BC Director of Athletics Curt Kendall. "We will miss her many contributions and her personality."

As Coordinator of Student-Athlete Programming and Well-Being, Ramsdell has worked with numerous campus groups including Student Life, the Director of Multicultural Services and Career Services.

Within the athletic department, she worked with the Title IX Coordinator to plan student-athlete and staff training, assisted the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.)- including with the new year-end Golden Eagle Awards banquet, and managed athletic laundry service.

Ramsdell was originally hired as Assistant to the Athletic Director/Assistant Field Hockey Coach following Bridgewater's selection as a recipient of the two-year NCAA Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant. Ramsdell assisted the department in a variety of functions, aiding with the ongoing fundraising for the Nininger Hall renovations and various athletic department fundraising projects.

The Eagle field hockey team went 43-35 in her four seasons as an assistant coach, including two appearances in the ODAC title game. In 2015, the Eagles won the program's first-ever ODAC championship and reached the NCAA Sweet 16 after defeating Ramsdell's alma mater, Catholic, in the first round.

Ramsdell graduated from Catholic in 2012 with a bachelor's in history and political science. She earned her master's degree in sports leadership from Northeastern in April 2014.

Ramsdell owns a Level 2 Coaching Accreditation from USA Field Hockey and has been a goalkeeper coach for Region 8 Futures and Rapids Field Hockey.
