Tom Fisher resumed his role as the head coach of the Seahawk men's and women's cross country teams in January 2013. Fisher was the program's first mentor when the teams received varsity status in 2009, helping to build the programs from the ground up and repeated as the head coach in 2010.
He relinquished the reins at the end of the 2010-11 academic year to focus on his growing family. Fisher has not stayed far from cross country, spending the last two seasons (2011 and 2012) as an assistant coach.
In his two seasons at the helm of the Seahawk women's cross country team, St. Mary's finished middle of the pack in back-to-back Capital Athletic Conference championships with a fifth-place finish in 2009 and sixth in 2010.
He is an avid triathlete who competes in several triathlons along the East Coast each year such as the Kinetic Half Ironman.
The Wappingers Falls, N.Y. native originally came aboard the St. Mary's athletics and recreation staff in November of 2007 as the director of the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center (MPOBARC).
A 1992 graduate of the State University of New York at Cortland, Fisher earned a bachelor of science degree in physical education with a minor in management. He then completed his masters in sports administration at Eastern Kentucky University in 1995, serving as a graduate assistant intramural sports coordinator and instructor.
