Weeks Named Senior Woman Administator

STILLWATER, Okla.  (OSU Athletics ) — Amy Weeks, who led the Oklahoma State women's golf team to three Big 12 Conference championships in 2001, 2002 and 2003, and a second place NCAA finish in 2004, has been named Senior Woman Administrator.

OSU Athletics Director Harry Birdwell made the announcement Wednesday. Weeks will succeed Ann Baer who retired last month after serving OSU for the past 25 years.

"Amy's experience as a highly successful coach and her extensive knowledge and insight into women's athletics across the country make her well qualified for this key position," Birdwell said. "She shares my vision of having championship caliber teams in all of our women's sports while operating within the rules and maintaining the highest level of academic achievement. Her passion for OSU is contagious and she is a great fund raiser."

Weeks, who won a Big Eight individual title while earning Academic All America and All Conference honors at Oklahoma State, has been on the Cowgirl golf staff for the past seven years, including four as head coach.

She became just the second head women's golf coach in OSU history when she succeeded Ann Pitts in 2000. In four years as OSU's head coach, Weeks directed the Cowgirls to 10 tournament titles, including three Big 12 championships, six runner-up finishes and four individual tournament titles.

The Cowgirls' second-place NCAA finish in 2004 was the highest ever for women's golf at OSU.

Mike McGraw, associate head coach and seven year veteran in the OSU golf program, will take over as interim coach, effective immediately.

As senior woman administrator, Weeks will report to the director of athletics and have oversight of several of OSU's sports programs. She will also assist in key fundraising opportunities for overall facility improvement.

"To serve my alma mater in this capacity is the opportunity of a lifetime," Weeks said. "My vision is to have national success in all of our programs with academic achievement also a top priority. I am extremely thankful and honored to have this opportunity."

Weeks earned a degree from Oklahoma State in 1998. As a player, she was part of three Big Eight championship teams. She had a highly successful prep career that included being the Texas Class 3A individual medalist as both a junior and senior.
