Belton (January 24, 2013) -- University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women’s golf coach Nancy Taylor-Capps has resigned from her position, effective February 1st. Taylor-Capps is leaving UMHB to become Associate Head Coach of the women’s golf team at Queens University, an NCAA Division II school in Charlotte, North Carolina. Taylor-Capps will be returning home in her new position after spending the previous two years as an assistant golf coach at Winthrop University in South Carolina.
“This is just a door that opened and I’m walking through it,” Taylor-Capps said. “It is an opportunity to go back home and be closer to my family and it is also a wonderful coaching opportunity in Division II.”
Taylor-Capps took over as the head women’s golf coach at UMHB in August and she guided the Cru women to a 39-stroke victory at the Alamo City Classic in her final tournament as head coach. UMHB also posted a pair of second-place team finishes in the fall and set new school scoring records for 18, 36 and 54 holes in tournaments this fall. The Cru women were ranked #1 in the country in the final Golfstat Division III head-to-head rankings of the fall season and were fourth in the nation in the final Golf World/WGCA Division Top 25 Poll of the fall.
“We hate to lose Nancy after such a successful fall season, but I certainly understand her wanting to seize this opportunity and we wish her the best,” UMHB Vice-President for Athletics Randy Mann said. “Our women’s golf program is in great shape and we are excited about the promise this spring holds for our student-athletes.”
