Dan Ruyle of Southwestern University guided his squad to a conference title and was rewarded with his fourth SCAC women's Coach-of-the-Year honor and first since winning the award three consecutive years from 2007 to 2009.
The Pirates defeated Trinity by four strokes at the 2013 championships, the second-closest finish in the history of the event. The championship was the first for the Southwestern women's golf program since 2009 and the sixth overall, which is just one off DePauw University's SCAC-best seven women's team titles.
The women earned a spot in the 2013 NCAA National Championships in Destin, Florida beginning May 14th. This is the seventh appearance by the Pirates in the Championships, finishing in the top 10 in all six previous showings.
