Grambo Promoted to Associate Head Coach for Track and Field and Cross Country Programs

PITTSFORD, N.Y. – The nationally-ranked St. John Fisher College track and field program is pleased to announce that Geoffrey Grambo has been promoted to associate head coach following a successful stint as an assistant over the last seven seasons. Grambo, who will also serve as the recruiting coordinator for the track and field and cross country programs, joined Fisher in 2011 as an assistant coach for throws. In that span, the Lyons native has helped build the Cardinals into one of the premier track and field programs in the nation after the men's squad won two individual national championships this year and finished tied for seventh place overall at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships in LaCrosse, Wis. "Coach Grambo has excelled in his role as assistant coach for throws and we are very excited to welcome his promotion to associate head coach for our track and cross country teams," commented head coach Mike Henchen who was named the Empire 8 Coach of the Year during both the indoor and outdoor track and field seasons this year. "He not only brings a tremendous amount of coaching expertise to the position, but also a fresh perspective that I'm sure will contribute to our teams reaching even higher levels of success." Since joining the program, Grambo has overseen the development of numerous student-athletes who have been named All-Conference. Over the last seven seasons, Grambo has coached 31 All-Conference selections in all with 19 coming from the women's team. Additionally, he has coached two Cardinals that qualified for the NCAA Division III Championship with Kyle Koehler earning All-American honors in 2016 after finishing seventh in the shotput. Prior to his time at Fisher, Grambo broke into the coaching field as a graduate assistant throws coach at William Woods University (MO) from 2008-10 while earning his MBA. A native of Lyons, Grambo graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2008 with a degree in History and a minor in Exercise Science. He led the Saints track and field team in shot put as a four-time Liberty League champion, two-time New York State champion, one-time ECAC champion and was named as an NCAA Division III All-American Award Recipient during his senior year. Grambo still holds the St. Lawrence University shot put record. Stay up-to-date with the latest news, scores, highlights and more by following Fisher Athletics on Twitter and Instagram.
