UPLAND, Ind. – Taylor women's golf coach Julie Flores has announced her resignation following three and a half years as the leader of the TU women's golf program.
Taylor Director of Athletics Kyle Gould accepted the resignation of Flores last month and approved the transition to promote Cameron Andry as head coach for the women's program.
"We can't thank Julie enough for all she has done for our women's golf program," Gould said. "She was vital in the birth of our women's golf program and has established the foundation on which a successful program will continue to be built."
Flores chose to step down to spend more time with her family and to focus her efforts on her position as the City Controller for Marion, Indiana.
"I want to thank Taylor for giving me the opportunity to coach for such a great institution," Flores said. "How blessed I have been to have a tremendous group of ladies on the team that I will truly miss. I would also like to thank Coach Andry and I know he will continue to lead the team in future successes."
The head coach for the Taylor men's golf program since 2011 and the Director of Golf Programs since 2012, Andry will now assume the head coaching responsibilities for both the men's and women's golf programs.
"I couldn't be more excited to take on the challenges of coaching our women's program," Andry said. "Julie has done such a great job and she will be dearly missed but she leaves our program in a great position to continue to improve and succeed in the future."
Andry guided the TU men's golf team to the Crossroads League title in 2016, the program's first conference championship since 1998. The Trojans finished the 2016 season ranked No. 21 in the NAIA Coaches Top-25 poll.
The women's golf season begins on September 2-3 at the Indiana Wesleyan Invitational at Arbor Trace Golf Club in Marion, Indiana.
