ABOUT THE COACH: Head Coach Mary Lou Mulflur was honored as Pac-10 Coach of the Year for the second time in her career following the 1998-1999 season, in which she led the Huskies to a sixth-place Pac-10 finish and a spot in the NCAA West Regional. Mulflur received the award for the first time in 1988 after directing that squad to a best-ever sixth-place finish in the NCAA West Regional. Now in her 17th season at the helm of Husky women's golf, Mulflur looks to lead Washington back to a NCAA appearance after a technicality at the NCAA West Regional kept the Huskies from making a third straight trip in 1999.
