According to a press release from Ball State Athletics:
Tuesday, June 14, 2022, Ball State Women's Golf head coach Katherine Mowat announced she is stepping down from her position after 18 seasons. She is set to take a position in the health and wellness industry.
A search for the next head coach of the program is already reportedly underway.
“It has been an incredible personal and professional experience to lead this program for the last 18 years,” Mowat said (from Ball State Athletics' press release). “I am thankful for the many colleagues and administrators I have had the pleasure of working with.
“I am thankful for the Ball State and Muncie community, who have been wonderful to me and my family over the years. Most of all, I am thankful for the tremendous women who I have had the privilege of coaching at Ball State. Thank you for your dedication and thank you for the memories. I wish the Cardinals and the women’s golf program much success moving forward.”
During her 18 seasons as head coach, Mowat won the Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year twice, as well as 20 tournaments. Mowat coached the Cardinals to runner-up finishes at the MAC Championships in 2010 and 2012.
Mowat coached Jenna Hague and Brittany Kelly as they made NCAA Regional appearances and coached Katie Sundberg and Hague as they became MAC Championship medalists. She also coached each of the top five players on Ball State's all-time list for career scoring average -- Kelly (76.43), Manon Tounalom (76.89), Hague (77.22), Kelsey Sear (78.53) and Rachael Pruett (78.78).
Over the course of Mowat's career, the Cardinals posted 11 All-MAC team selections, including the past two seasons with Hadley Moritz and Liz Kim. Kim was also named the MAC’s Sportswoman of the Year for back-to-back seasons under the guidance of Mowat.
