Crinion emphasizes empowerment to women’s soccer

Change means a new approach, and as the new head coach for the women’s soccer team, Ciara Crinion understands that her ideas may not be the same as former coach Rick Stainton’s. Each coach has a different belief of how to conduct his or her program, and that is why Crinion is fully aware of her culture shock to the team. “Two coaches are not the same, so we bring in with different ideas a different kind of mentality and we are looking...
