Nagle Named Full-Time Assistant

June 19, 2013

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa assistant women’s tennis coach Courtney Nagle has had the “interim” title removed from her position and will remain with the Hawkeyes as a full-time assistant. The announcement was made Wednesday by head coach Katie Dougherty.

Nagle joined the Hawkeyes in July 2012. In her first season on campus she helped lead Iowa to a No. 8 rating in the ITA Division I Midwest Regional Rankings. She also helped Ruth Seaborne reach as high as No. 75 in the ITA singles rankings, and saw Seaborne and Morven McCulloch climb to No. 34 in the ITA doubles rankings.

“Courtney was a great addition to our program and an integral part of the improvements we made this past year,” said Dougherty. “The combination of her high-level playing career and coaching background make her a perfect fit for developing student-athletes. She is committed to their athletic and academic success, and I’m happy to lift her interim appointment.”

The Hawkeyes finished 11-12 overall in 2013, an improvement of three wins from the previous year. Iowa reached as high as No. 58 in the ITA National Team Rankings and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Championships.
