Nick Crovetti will begin his fourth season as Head Women's Golf Coach in 2014-15. Crovetti is the first-ever women’s golf coach at Merrimack, which started the program back in 2011-12.
Crovetti's third full season featured even greater strides for the program, which constantly competed against some of the top Division II regional programs over the course of the year. The Warriors claimed two weekend tournament victories in 2013-14, including the season-opening Wellesley Invitational and the West Chester Invitational in early April.
Merrimack finished the season ranked 10th out of 12 teams in the East Region, while two individuals ranked in the top-six in the region, as well.
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. 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 second-highest GPA in the country according to the the NGCA.
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.
