Carolyn Crampton enters her first year as a Graduate Assistant of the Suffolk University Athletics Department and the women’s basketball program.
Crampton brings her talents to Suffolk from Vassar College, where she spent the previous two years as an assistant coach and also earned her Bachelor’s degree in 2011. As an assistant for the Brewers, she was responsible for recruiting, scouting, on-court instruction, film breakdown and all film exchange. During her two seasons, she helped produce a 2015 Liberty League Co-Rookie of the Year and a unanimous First-Team All-Liberty League selection, as well as multiple first and second team honorees in 2016.
Prior to joining Vassar’s program as a coach, Crampton laced up her sneakers as a player. During her four-year career she started 88 of her 99 appearances and captained the 2011 squad to the program’s first-ever Liberty League Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance.
Originally from Reading, Massachusetts, Crampton attended Reading Memorial, where she played basketball and coached for a season as head coach of the junior varsity squad and assistant to the varsity team. Crampton also served as an assistant for Reading’s Varsity team that won the 2013 Massachusetts Division I North title.
