Kathleen Colpoys joins New Hampshire after one season as an assistant coach at Stonehill College, where she helped the Skyhawks to a playoff berth in the Northeast-10 quarterfinals.
She will assist head coach Jill Hirschinger and associate head coach Stacy Barnett with the development middle hitters and blocking. In addition, Colpoys will be responsible for all video including break down and tape exchange, team travel, statistics and home game management.
Prior to coaching at Stonehill, Colpoys was a four-year standout at Holy Cross, where she was the first student-athlete in program history to record over 700 kills and 200 blocks. She captained the squad in her senior year and finished her career ranked second in program history with a .236 hitting percentage, while ranking fourth all-time with 214 blocks and seventh with 755 kills. Additionally, she is just one of four players in program history to record 200-plus kills three consecutive seasons. After her senior season, Colpoys remained with Holy Cross as a volunteer assistant, assisting with individual training, team practices, Crusaders’ spring tournaments and recruiting.
An active member in the community, Colpoys has volunteered her time with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and also has served as Eucharistic minister with her local congregation. She also represented Holy Cross as a SADER Representative and has participated in the spring break immersion by volunteering in the hurricane affected areas of New Orleans.
A native of Scituate, Mass., Colpoys graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at Holy Cross in May 2012.
