LONG BEACH - Long Beach State head women's golf coach Joey Cerulle has announced the hiring of Alexis Edwards as assistant coach.
Edwards replaces Sue Ewart who retired after serving 12 years as the 49ers' head coach and the past five seasons as an assistant.
"Alexis stood out as the premier candidate for the position and gives us the best opportunity for achieving our program goals," Cerulle said. "She is an experienced coach with a strong teaching background and has excellent player-development skills. Her knowledge and resources in Northern California will help expand our recruiting platform. I look forward to working with her and seeing her energy inspire our team."
Edwards comes to The Beach from Cal State Monterey Bay where she served as head coach the last three seasons, leading the Otters to two NCAA Division-II regional appearances and one individual regional appearance. During her stint at Monterey Bay, the Otters captured two tournament team titles and six individual medalists, while producing two All-American players and one All-West Region.
She also served as interim head coach at Fresno State during the fall season in 2011, where she led the Bulldogs to a pair of second-place finishes at the Rose City Collegiate and the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate.
Edwards was a four-year letterwinner on the women's golf team at BYU where she helped the Cougars to three NCAA regional appearances, including a trip to the 2006 NCAA Championship in her junior season.
"I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to working at Long Beach State with Coach Cerulle and the team," Edwards said. "The players are very talented and driven, which would make any coach excited to be a part of the program. I'm excited in helping this program reach its ultimate goals of winning multiple Big West championships and getting into the NCAA regionals!"
