|Title:||Head Women's Golf Coach|
Nick Crovetti enters his third season as Head Women's Golf Coach. Crovetti is the first-ever women’s golf coach at Merrimack, which started the program back in 2011-12.
After an impressive rookie season, the women's golf team reached even greater heights in 2012-13. The Warriors did not wait long to make noise, winning their first tournament of the year that they participated in en route to a successful fall campaign.
Then, in the spring, Merrimack truly caught fire; the Warriors continued to face off against top competition in the region before deciding to compete in the ECAC Championships due to the Northeast-10 Conference not sponsoring women's golf. In the ECAC's, Merrimack blew away the field by more than 30 strokes, helping the program lay claim to its first-ever conference championship in just its second year as a varsity sport.
That was not all for the Warriors; then-sophomore Ali Reed became the first golfer in program history to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Regionals. She then qualified for the NCAA Division II Tournament in Daytona Beach, Fla., where she competed against the nation's best golfers and finished inside the top-50.
The Warriors competed in 10 events during their innagural season, finishing in the top-10 four times and collecting a top-five finish at the Wellesley Invitational.
Academically, three warriors were selected to the National Golf Coaches Association All-America Scholar Team for 2011-12 and, in addition, Women’s Golf earned the 2nd highest GPA in the country under head coach Nick Crovetti as given by the NGCA annually.
As a 2004 graduate of Central Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance, Crovetti was also a four-year scholarship member on the men’s golf team; Crovetti was a three-time Boston Herald and Boston Globe all-scholastic selection and also was an MIAA Individual High School state champion in 1995.
In 2008, he earned membership in the PGA of America, and also received the distinction of being named as a top-50 teacher by U.S. Kids Golf, a national award given annually. In addition, Crovetti is a member of the Women’s Golf Coaches’ Association, and Titleist Professional Staff. He has held golf professional positions at some of the top clubs in the country including: The Fox Club, Palm City, Fla.; Salem Country Club, Peabody, Mass.; Bellevue Golf Club, Melrose, Mass.; and, most recently, as General Manager/Director of Golf at Beverly Golf and Tennis Club.
