Best wishes to the team and their continued future success!” During his nine seasons with the Bearcats, McLaughlin has coached Northwest to 57 total top-five finishes, including 16 tournament victories and 16 runner-up finishes. Northwest finished in the top-five in 81.4 percent of the 70 tournaments he coached in. In addition, the Bearcats finished in the Central Region top 12 the past two seasons and were in the top five of the MIAA standings every year under McLaughlin.

In 2012, Lowell was named the MIAA Player of the Year. In addition to strong play on the course, the Bearcats have also earned 13 NGCA academics awards since 2010. “We appreciate coach McLaughlin’s commitment to Northwest women’s golf,” said Northwest Director of Athletics Mel Tjeerdsma. “He started our program nine years ago, culminating this season with a third place finish in the MIAA. He has consistently recruited young women who were outstanding golfers as well as first-class student-athletes. Thanks to coach McLaughlin’s efforts, we are pleased with where our women’s golf program is today and we look forward to watching their progress as they remain a consistent contender for the MIAA title.”
