The USTFCCCA Mourns The Passing Of Sandy Ford-Centonze
HANOVER, N.H. – It is with great sadness that Dartmouth announces the passing of longtime Herbert & Marjorie Chase Head Coach of Women’s Track & Field Sandy Ford-Centonze.
Ford-Centonze passed peacefully Saturday morning surrounded by her beloved family after fiercely battling cancer for several months.
One of the most loved and well-respected coaches at Dartmouth, Ford-Centonze was also one of its most loyal as this marked her 28th season at the helm of the program, coming to Hanover in 1992. She served alongside Herbert & Marjorie Chase Director of Dartmouth Track & Field and Cross Country Barry Harwick ’77 the entirety of her time in Hanover as the two started at the same time and formed one of the most recognizable coaching duos and bonds in Ivy League athletics.
