Longstreth is extremely excited to announce that we have hired Christy Utter to be our Assistant Field Hockey Manager. Christy will be a key member of the Longstreth Field Hockey Management Team. “We are very proud to have Christy Utter join our staff at Longstreth,” says Jana Withrow. “She has been and continues to be a hardworking, knowledgeable, loyal ambassador to the sport of field hockey. She brings great enthusiasm to her work, she is a people person, and she is driven to succeed.” A two-time NCAA Champion and 1996 graduate of North Carolina, Christy has spent the past four years serving as the top Assistant on the field hockey staff at Brown University. Prior to Brown, Christy spent eight seasons at the University of Louisville, including her last year as the Associate Head Coach. With Christy’s help, Louisville won back-to-back MAC Championships (2003 & 2004) and made their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

In 2008, Christy received her Level II Coaching Accreditation and was also active with the USA Field Hockey's High Performance Training Center. As an Assistant Coach for the Midwest Team, Christy helped to guide the team to a third place finish in the 2006 National Championships. Prior to coaching the Midwest Team, Christy was active in the Futures Olympic Developmental Program, serving as the Head Coach for the Houston site (1997 & 1998) and the Head Coach for the Louisville site (1999 to 2006).

A 1996 graduate of the University of North Carolina with a BA in Communication Studies, Christy helped to lead the Tar Heels to back-to-back NCAA Championships (1995 & 1996), and was Co-Captain on the 1996 squad. An ACC All-Conference selection in 1996, Christy was named to the 1995 NCAA All-Tournament Team as the Tar Heels capped off an undefeated season with a national championship.
