Bev Terry Named WGCA Assistant Coach Of The Year

Terry Helped Lead Bears To Record-Setting 2023-24 Season

BERKELEY – After serving in a crucial role for the California women’s golf team in her first season as associate head coach and ninth year overall with the team, Beverly Terry has been named the 2023-24 Division I Gold Pride WGCA Assistant Coach of the Year, it was announced Monday.

“I want to thank the Women’s Golf Coaches Association for this incredible recognition,” Terry said. “I am deeply honored to be recognized by my peers with this award. It is truly humbling to stand among such amazing coaches.”

Terry earns the honor after helping guide the Golden Bears to one of their best seasons in recent memory in which they set numerous program records and advanced to the NCAA Regional round for the 23rd time since 2000. She is the program’s first assistant coach to win the award.

“I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to retiring head coach Nancy McDaniel – my longtime boss, mentor and friend,” said Terry. “Her trust and confidence in me has been instrumental to our journey together.”

Following the news that McDaniel would be taking a leave of absence prior to the start of the season, the Terry-led Bears went on a scorching run in the fall that saw them hit five program records and win three straight competitions.

“We are thrilled with the acknowledgment of Bev’s leadership. Her hard work, diligence and compassion for our team shined through with the program’s first wins in over three years as she took on head coach responsibilities beginning in the fall,” McDaniel said. “We want to wholeheartedly thank her for her tremendous effort and energy this season and for continuing to lead on the course as well as our team culture. She truly put the team first and they responded. We are so proud of her for earning this very deserving WGCA Assistant Coach of the Year award.”

Cal’s historic stretch began in late September, when it came back to win the Molly Invitational with a 28-under-par 836 that shattered the program’s previous 54-hole team score record. Two days later, the Bears defeated Stanford 4-3 in the Big Match.

The following weekend, Cal made up a 13-stroke deficit in the final round of the Ron Moore Intercollegiate to earn its third straight win. The Bears collectively carded a 21-under 843, good for their second-best team score of all time.

By the end of the year, Cal claimed five top-five finishes…
