Amber Spencer begins her fifth season, and first as a full-time assistant coach for the men’s and women’s track & field program at Babson College in 2018.
Spencer joined the Beavers' coaching staff after wrapping up a tremendous four-year career at fellow NEWMAC institution Wheaton College in 2014. She earned All-America honors in both the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays at the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships and the 4x400 meter relay at the 2014 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Spencer was also a six-time All-NEWMAC honoree and was twice garnered USTFCCCA All-Academic laurels.
A native of Wellesley, Mass., Spencer has made a major impact since joining the coaching staff four years ago. Both the men's and women's programs have set new records in the 100-, 200-, and 400-meter events, in addition to earning a combined six all-conference honors in sprints since 2016. The men's 4x400-meter squad collected the Beavers' first NEWMAC relay title in 2017, and rising senior Angelina Raffone became the first Babson female to win the 100-meter dash at the league meet last April.
Spencer will also serve as an assistant coach for Babson's men's and women's cross country squads.
