Women’s Soccer Adds Zurmuhlen as Operations Assistant

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's soccer and Chris Hamblin, The Branca Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Soccer, have announced the addition of Kristy Zurmuhlen as the program's operations assistant.

"We are really fortunate to be adding Kristy to our staff," said Hamblin. "As a national champion at Stanford, Kristy knows what it takes to be successful as a student-athlete. Kristy's experiences and expertise in sports performance will be a great addition to our program."

Zurmuhlen comes to Cambridge after spending the past three years as a sports performance and strength and conditioning coach. She was also an assistant coach at Boston College during the 2014-15 season, where she helped the Eagles to a nine-win campaign.

Zurmuhlen was a standout player at Stanford, where she graduated in 2012 after helping lead the Cardinal to the 2011 NCAA Championship over Duke. She was selected to the NCAA College Cup All-Tournament team as a result. She also pushed Stanford to four-consecutive Pac-10 or Pac-12 titles, and to three final fours.

Harvard women's soccer opens its season Aug. 24 at California.
