Ashley Crane became the assistant golf coach for the Huntingdon men's and women's programs in January 2013 and was named Associate Head Golf Coach in 2016.

Working primarily with the women's golf team, Crane's Lady Hawks have set new standards for the program. During her four full seasons, the women's team has turned in the top four season scoring averages in the nine-year history of the program.

Crane's teams have recorded 20 of the top 22 individual rounds in program history, the top 16 individual 54-hole totals, the top 20 team rounds, the top 18 team 36-hole totals and the top eight team 54-hole totals.

Under Crane's guidance, LeeAnn Cahoon became the program's first All-American and All-Region selection in 2015 and became the first Lady Hawk to qualify for the NCAA Tournament that season. Crane's teams have produced six Women's Golf Coaches Association of America All-American Scholars and 19 Academic All-Conference selections.

The Lady Hawks opened the 2016-17 season with a strong showing in the BSC Southern Shootout. Cahoon's 1-under 69 in the opening round was the first round in the 60s by a Lady Hawk. Cahoon's 2-over 142 for the tournament was the best 36-hole total in program history and marked the first individual tournament win by a Lady Hawk. The team's 615 in the tournament was the best 36-hole total in program history.

The women finished in the top eight in seven of nine tournaments and placed in the top three in three events. Cahoon closed her career by setting a program record with a 77.50 scoring average for the season.

During the 2015-16 season, the Lady Hawks finished fifth or better in six events and finished in the top seven in all nine events. The women placed second in the Montgomery Country Club Women's Intercollegiate and the Joe Duncan Rhodes Invitational. The team set the program's season scoring average record at 318.79.

The Lady Hawks set their single-round record with a 13-over 301 in the second round of the Golfweek D3 Fall Invitational and their 54-hole record with a 941 in the Jekyll Island Women's Collegiate.

The 2014-15 team earned the first tournament win in program history with a first-place finish in the MCC Women's Intercollegiate. The Lady Hawks finished fifth or better in seven of their nine tournaments as Cahoon qualified for the NCAA Tournament. Cahoon earned second-team All-American honors and first-team All-Region honors.

The 2013-14 Lady Hawks placed in the top five in five of their nine tournaments during Crane's first full season. Crane joined the program during the 2012-13 season and led the Lady Hawks during their final four tournaments of the season.

Before joining the Huntingdon staff, Crane served as an assistant women's golf coach at Daytona State College and worked as an assistant golf pro at the Montgomery Country Club. As an assistant at Daytona State, she was part of National Junior College Athletic Association national championships in 2010 and 2011.

Daytona State won six tournament titles during the 2010-11 season. Four Daytona State players were named All-American in 2011 and five of her former players received scholarship offers to four-year institutions or moved on to LPGA Qualifying School.

As a player, Crane was a first-team All-American as a freshman and a honorable mention All-American as a sophomore at Daytona State. She was also the Florida Women's Amateur Stroke Play champion in 2008. After Daytona State, Crane played for Kennesaw State University.

She is married to Matt Crane.
