Carla Criste – Asst. Athletic Director, US Naval Academy

After spending the 27 seasons as the head coach of the Navy women’s track and field program, Carla Criste announced her retirement from collegiate coaching effective August 31, 2018. Criste has remained with the United States Naval Academy as a full-time professor and administrator in the Physical Education department. In her nearly three decades at the helm of the Navy women’s track and field program, Navy earned six Patriot League team titles (three indoor / three outdoor) with 120 individual Patriot League champions and 20 championship relay teams.
 
Criste’s success carried over into Navy’s Star Meet competitions against archrival Army, where she boasted a 33-19-1 record, including an impressive 22-8 mark against the Black Knights over the last 15 years. Under her guidance, Navy has defeated Army in 15 of the last 20 indoor / outdoor Star Meets. Prior to Criste’s arrival, the Midshipmen’s women’s track and field team was winless against the Black Knights in 11 meetings (six indoor / five outdoor).
