Stacy Graham is in her 11th year as head women’s golf coach at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Last year, Graham led the Prairie Wolves to their highest Great Plains Athletic Conference finish in her tenure. NWU placed fourth in the GPAC championships, which was the highest finish for a NWU women’s team since Fall 2001. She had two players earn All-GPAC recognition and for the second straight season she had an athlete earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.
In 2011-12 Graham and the Prairie Wolves finished seventh at the GPAC Championships playing with a squad of only eight players. She also coached the first ever CoSIDA Academic All-American in NWU women’s golf history with Sarah Hotovy earning Second-Team honors.
For the 2010-11 season Graham helped coach the Prairie Wolves to their highest conference finish in five seasons as the team placed sixth overall at the Great Plains Athletic Conference Championships. She also coached two All-GPAC players and had two players earn Daktronics/NAIA Scholar Athlete awards.
During the 2009-10 season, Coach Graham led the NWU women's golf team to an eighth place finish at the 2009-10 GPAC Championships for the second year in a row. She also had a player finish in the top 10 of the GPAC for the second straight season.
In 2008-09, Coach Graham led the NWU women’s golf team to an eighth place finish at the GPAC Championships in the first year of the new format of the tournament and had one player earn All-GPAC recognition.
During the 2007-08 season, Graham helped the Prairie Wolves to a seventh place finish at the GPAC Championships, just missing qualifying for the NAIA Region III Championships.
She did have one individual qualifier for the Regional meet.
In 2005-06, the NWU women qualified for the NAIA Region III Championships after earning a fifth place finish at the GPAC Championships. The Prairie Wolves made a run at the Region III title and a berth in the NAIA Championships, but finished a mere seven strokes behind the winning team.
Graham, then Stacy Smith, completed her collegiate playing career in 2003 at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. She was ranked second on her team for stroke average and played in every tournament as a junior and senior, winning two meets as a junior, including the Hastings College Invitational and the Chadron State College Dual.
A three-time National Golf Coaches Association All-Scholar, Graham earned four letters and was a member of the team’s top five from her sophomore year on.
