Christy Morgan played college hockey at Old Dominion, leading them to three consecutive NCAA titles from 1982-84. She was named the Honda Broderick Award winner all three seasons, and in all four of her college seasons, she was named to the NCAA All-Tournament team. Morgan was on the US National team from 1982-90, playing in the 1983 and 1986 World Cup Tournaments and the 1988 Seoul Olympics. She eventually turned to coaching. In 1994 she led James Madison to their only NCAA field hockey championship.

Morgan struggled in the later 1990s with health issues which resolved after work with holistic medicine that revealed she suffered from celiac disease. Changing her diet to a gluten-free one helped and she returned to coaching, spending a few years as associate head coach at Wake Forest, before returning to James Madison as head coach in 2014. She has owned CirclePlay Inc, which hosts field hockey camps and clinics, and Morgan also does motivational speaking.
