About Colleen Fink, CQSports and the College Quest Experience



Colleen Fink

Owner / Director

Colleen Fink was named head coach of the University of Pennsylvania's field hockey program in April of 2010, completing her seventh season at the helm in 2016. Her tenure has sparked a resurgence in the Quakers program, placing them among the Ivy League's top programs.

Penn has won at least 11 games overall in three of the last four seasons, a feat previously accomplished just twice in the first 40 years of the program's history as a varsity program (1973-2012). In both 2013 and 2015, the Quakers entered their final regular-season game at Ellen Vagelos Field playing for a share of the Ivy League title and the league's NCAA Championship automatic bid.

Penn did not have a first-team All-Ivy player from 2008-12; in the last four seasons, the Quakers have had five. After placing just one woman on the All-Ivy teams in Fink's first season (2010) and two in her second season (2011), Penn has had four women receive All-Ivy recognition in four of the last five years. In addition, Penn had the Ivy League Rookie of the Year in 2013 (Jasmine Cole) and 2014 (Alexa Hoover), and in both cases they were named first-team All-Ivy as freshmen, the first times that happened in program history.

Hoover earned NFHCA All-America as both a sophomore and junior, becoming the program's first All-America since 2003, just its third since 1989, and just the third player in Penn history to be a multi All-America selection. At the NFHCA All-Region level, Penn had no players recognized from 2008-12 but has had nine in the last four seasons including four first-team selections.
