Hannah Fisher – Davidson Class of 2018

The Davidson field hockey program is welcoming back one of its own, Hannah Fisher, as an assistant coach, Wildcats head coach Zoe Almquist has announced.

Fisher is a 2018 Davidson graduate and played for the Wildcats from 2014-17. She was a sophomore on the 2015 team that reached the Atlantic 10 Tournament.

“I couldn’t be more excited for Hannah to join our group,” said Almquist, who is entering her fourth season as head coach. “As an alumna of Davidson, she is uniquely equipped to prioritize academic achievement, support social and emotional development and chase athletic excellence without compromise. Her time as an assistant at Central Michigan will give us important markers in our own program’s development, and her experience playing in the A-10 Tournament will help us lay the foundation to take Davidson field hockey back there. I’m so happy Hannah is here.”

Fisher spent the last four seasons at Central Michigan, first as a graduate assistant, then as an assistant coach and, most recently, as interim head coach.

“I want to thank Zoe Almquist, Scott Applegate and the Davidson Athletics administration for this opportunity,” said Fisher. “I’m incredibly excited to return home to a place that made such an impact on my life and am honored to be back at Davidson College in a new role. I know firsthand the dedication and motivation it takes to be a student-athlete at Davidson. I believe in Zoe’s vision for this program and the ability of the team to be top competitors in the A-10.  It’s a privilege to say I’m a Davidson grad who can now be part of developing and inspiring future student-athletes. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the team that competed in the A-10 championships and am excited to work with Zoe to bring this team back there.”

A midfielder, Fisher was a regular in the Wildcats’ lineup for four years, making 56 starts, scoring 15 goals and finishing with 39 career points. She led the Wildcats with seven goals and 14 points as a senior, after totaling six goals and five assists (17 points) as a junior. She scored a hat trick at Colgate on Oct. 16, 2016 and was an A-10 All-Rookie Team member in 2014.

“Thinking about coming back to my alma mater brings up memories of resilient overtime wins, intense A-10 rivalries, lasting friendships, team family competitions and adventures in new cities,” said Fisher. 

Fisher’s ties to Davidson go beyond her own academic and playing career. Her sisters Sarah (field hockey) and Becca (soccer) were also Wildcat student-athletes.
