Carol Green Robertson completed her first year as women's head coach after serving as assistant coach for both men's and women's golf programs.
In 2011-12, her Lady Monarchs won two tournaments (Towson and Hoya Invitational). The women's program placed fifth or better in six tournaments.
The Lady Monarchs not only got it done on the course, but also in the classroom. The Lady Monarchs 3.4 overall grade point average for 2011-12 was the best among ODU's 18 intercollegiate sports. The team also was a recipient of the NCAA APR Recognition award as one of the top performing women's golf teams nationally.

"We are very pleased to have Carol join our golf coaching staff. She brings a variety of experiences as a Collegiate golfer, professional tour player, and also has coaching experience with both men's and women's teams at James Madison. She will be a valuable asset to both our programs." - Murray Rudisill, ODU men's golf coach.
