LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. –
Boston University Associate Strength and Conditioning Coach Darcy Gould
was named Master Strength and Conditioning Coach by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches association (CSCCa).
Gould was recognized on May 11, at the association's national conference in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. At the ceremony, BU's Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Glenn Harris
, also a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach, presented Gould with a blue MSCC jacket.
This honor is the highest given in the strength and conditioning coaching profession. Fewer than 200 individuals at the collegiate and professional level have earned this remarkable recognition.
"This is an incredible honor for Darcy," said CSCCa Executive Director, Dr. Chuck Stiggins. "Being named a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach signifies a commitment to the student athlete, the Boston University Athletics program, and the strength and conditioning profession. We are honored to have Coach Gould as a member of our association and to have her join the ranks of the Master Strength and Conditioning Coaches. She is truly a model of an outstanding strength and conditioning professional."
Since joining BU in the summer of 2004, Gould has worked tirelessly with Terrier student-athletes to help them become faster, stronger and better conditioned. Thanks to her efforts, teams such as women's ice hockey, women's lacrosse and softball have consistently made deep playoff runs and competed for conference and national championships. In addition, the men's rowing team has perennially performed well during both its fall and spring seasons thanks to Gould's guidance, in particular at the IRA National Championship Regatta.
"I am extremely happy for Darcy to have earned the recognition of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach, and to have been able to present her with her jacket," Harris said. "Her commitment to improving the performance of our student-athletes, through increased knowledge and experience, has put Darcy into an elite group of strength and conditioning coaches."
