Beginning in the mid 1970s Brown was fortunate to attract a number of talented women athletes who excelled in more than one sport. Such a performer was Amy Crafts, who garnered first team All-Ivy honors in both ice hockey and field hockey, and retains school records in both sports. Crafts led the ice hockey team in scoring during each of her four years, and ended her career with a total of nine scoring records. She continues to share records for most goals in a game (5), most assists in a game (5), and most points in a game (7). In 1981 she was named Ivy League Player of the Year, and she was awarded Brown's Panda Cup in 1982. She made first team All-Ivy in all four years of play. In field hockey, Crafts still shares the record for goals in one game (3), and career assists (10). She was twice named the team's Most Valuable Player, and in addition she was voted Outstanding Offensive Player in 1980 and - as a testimony to her versatility - Outstanding Defensive Player in 1981. Crafts stayed active in athletics after graduating from Brown. She played on the gold-medal-winning field hockey team at the 1982 National Sports Festival in Indianapolis. She earned a master's degree from Smith, and served as women's ice hockey coach at Dartmouth College in 1985-86. Today Crafts is assistant professor of sport and movement studies at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, where she also serves as head field hockey coach and lacrosse coach.
