Rebecca Swisher joined the F&M coaching staff for the 2016-17 season. She works primarily with the team's pole vaulters.
A 2016 graduate of F&M, Swisher graduates as one the program's most decorated athletes in history. During her four years competing for the Diplomats, Swisher earned All-America honors on three occasions, and between indoor and outdoor competition appeared at the National Championships on five occasions. Her victory in the pole vault at the 2016 Centennial Conference Outdoor Championships made her just the second athlete in the conference's history to win eight conference titles in one event, and in 2016 she was named the Karvasales Outstanding Senior Athlete Award, given annually to the female student-athlete that displays cumulative outstanding athletic and academic achievements over a four-year period.
Swisher continues to own the F&M school records in both the indoor (3.81 meters, 12'-6") and outdoor pole vault (3.84 meters, 12'-7.25").
