Coop/Dragon star, Ford, starts new coaching season as a Judge

Coop/Dragon star, Ford, starts
new coaching season as a Judge

A graphic put together by Brandeis University in November welcomes Lucy Ford to the team’s track and cross country programs.

Cooperstown and SUNY Oneonta track champion Lucy Ford took a step up the coaching ladder this school year.

Ford, a former state champion in high school in the high jump and a former SUNYAC champion in the high jump and heptathlon, accepted a coaching position at Brandeis University, a Division III school in Waltham, Massachusetts in November.

Although the job began in the fall, the season didn’t, as the University Athletic Association canceled winter sports for 2020-2021, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the spring season began last month and Ford told Iron String Press that she is happy with her new position.

“It is going pretty well,” she said. “I am having fun.”

Ford graduated from Cooperstown Central School in 2014 and SUNY Oneonta, where she transferred after beginning college at SUNY Brockport, in 2018. She was an assistant track coach at SUNY Delhi from 2018 to 2020, but the college eliminated most paid sports assistant positions during the pandemic.
