Brophy named women’s coach at Georgetown

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Katie Brophy has been named the head women’s coach at Georgetown, the school announced June 14. Brophy spent the past five seasons as an assistant coach at Indiana.

“This is a tremendous opportunity at one the world’s finest institutions, and I can’t wait to get started,” Brophy said in a release. “I’ve known of the Georgetown program since competing in the Big East, and I am confident that we can have great success both on and off the golf course.”

A native of Spokane, Wash., Brophy graduated from Notre Dame in 2006. A two-time captain, she recorded a school-record three tournament victories: the 2005 Jeannine McHaney Invitational/Central Regional Preview, the 2003 Big East Championship and the 2002 Peggy Kirk Bell Invitational.

Brophy replaces Mary Mattson, who served as the interim head coach during the 2011 season.

“We are very excited to have Katie join our family at Georgetown,” athletic director Lee Reed said. “She has been a big part of the success of the program at Indiana during her time there, was a tremendous collegiate golfer and has great teaching experience. We think she will be a terrific fit for our program.”
