Huskies golf coach Mary Lou Mulflur to be inducted into Hall of Fame
Northwest sports roundup
University of Washington golf coach Mary Lou Mulflur will be the 45th inductee into the Women’s Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame this December.
“I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” said Mulflur. “I never dreamed to be in this position when I started coaching. It is very special.”
Mulflur is in her 31st season as the Huskies’ head coach. She has led UW to 20 straight NCAA regional appearances and nine trips to the NCAA championships. She just returned from Tokyo, where the No. 12 Huskies earned a 50-stroke victory at the Topy Cup.
Several of Mulflur’s players have gone on to play professionally, including Paige Mackenzie and Nancy Kessler-McDaniel.
“It almost seems boastful to be telling people about it,” said Mulflur. “I am just so honored and never thought I would be in this position.”
