Jessica Cathey, who led Soddy Daisy High School to two state golf championships, has been named as the sixth head coach in Austin Peay women's golf history.

She is returning to her alma mater, where she was a three-time All-Ohio Valley Conference selection and two-time individual medalist for the Govs.

Director of Athletics Gerald Harrsion said, "I am excited to welcome former Governor student-athlete Jessica Cathey back to Austin Peay as our head women's golf coach. Jessica's passion for Austin Peay, teaching and the game of golf is infectious and I am confident she will build a team that will compete for the OVC championship and beyond.

"I would also like to thank Sara Robson for serving as interim head coach and leading this national search. She truly stepped up when we desperately needed her and I am much appreciative."

Cathey was Austin Peay's scoring leader in all four seasons and finished with a flourish, posting a 76.57 mark as a senior which ranks fourth all-time. She's one of only three Governors to post season scoring averages below 80 in all four seasons, and is one of only three Govs with three or more career All-OVC selections.

She also earned four straight Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar honors and serving on Austin Peay's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

She most recently worked as the LPGA Teaching pro and assistant club professional at the River Club Golf and Learning Center. She was also the Tennessee Golf Foundation's Assistant Pro from 2017-18 and will soon obtain her LPGA Class A teaching certification.
