In 2001–02, Matthew Crispino was chosen as captain of the Tribe men’s swimming team as well as its Most Valuable Swimmer. In 2014, he was named Swimming Coach of the Year by the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), making him the first Tribe mentor to win a men’s swimming coaching honor (he would win Coach of the Year again in 2015). Between his time at William & Mary and his return to his alma mater, he earned a master’s degree in physical education and coached swimming at Florida State University, West Point and Colgate University. Crispino’s swimmers count NCAA, U.S. National and Olympic Trials bids among their accomplishments. And under his mentorship, the Tribe men’s team won the 2015 CAA Swimming and Diving Championship, its first-ever conference title.
