Sunday, September 16, 2012

Annie Young has been named the new head coach at California State Northridge. Young coached the Oklahoma State women from 2008 to 2011.

“Annie’s experience as head coach at Oklahoma State positions our new coach and program for success in the future,” said Cal State Northridge Director of Athletics Rick Mazzuto. “After an extensive search, I am confident that our women’s golf program, under Coach Young’s leadership, will consistently be among the best programs in the Big West Conference.”

During her career at Oklahoma State, Young led the Cowgirls to two top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship and the 2009 Big 12 Conference title. She also coached Caroline Hedwall, the first Cowgirl in history to win the NCAA Championship.

As a player, Young won Big 12 Conference Player of the Year after winning the conference tournament as a senior in 2005 and leading the team to victory. Young played in the 2003 U.S. Women’s Open as an amateur, and was on the victorious U.S. Curtis Cup squad in 2004. She won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links in 2002.

“I am excited and grateful for the opportunity that Rick Mazzuto has given me to coach at CSUN,” said Young. “I look forward to working with the women on the team and helping them reach their goals.”
