Leary Named UCLA Women's Golf Coach
By: UCLA Athletics

June 11, 1999

LOS ANGELES - Carrie Leary, who began her collegiate golf career as a walk-on player, earned a scholarship after her freshman year and was a member of UCLA's 1991 NCAA Championship team, was named coach of the UCLA women's golf team today, the athletic department announced.

Leary, 28, has served as head women's golf coach at Cal State Northridge for the last three years, where she was named the 1998-99 Big Sky Coach of the Year. In her three seasons at Northridge, the Matadors improved their team scoring average 31 strokes.

"Carrie Leary represents the future of UCLA women's golf," said Athletic Director Peter Dalis. "Her talent and enthusiasm as a teacher as well as her coaching ability and dedication to the collegiate golf will keep UCLA among the nation's elite for many years."

As a UCLA freshman in 1990, she participated in 11 of 12 tournaments, including the Pacific-10 Conference Championships. She graduated with honors from UCLA in 1994 with a degree in Pyschology, and also served as the Bruins' student assistant coach during the 1993-94 season.

As an amateur, Leary competed in four U.S. Public Links Championships, and advanced to the quarterfinals in 1991. She also competed in three U.S. Amateur Championships and was an alternate qualifier for the 1992 and 1994 U.S. Women's Open Championships.

Leary, who is in the process of becoming an LPGA Class A teaching professional, played on several LPGA mini-tours. She competed in the 1995 LPGA Tour Qualifying School.

Leary enjoyed a fine junior career before entering UCLA. She won over 30 events as a member of the Southern California Junior Golf Assn., including a third place individual finish in the 1983 Junior World Championship.

Leary succeeds Hall of Fame coach Jackie Tobian-Steinmann, who will retire June 30 after coaching the Bruins for 22 seasons.
